Benzino Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Raymond Scott was born on 24 October 1964, in Boston, Massachusetts USA; his mother is from Cape Verde and father from Puerto Rican. Under his stage name of Benzino, he is known as a rapper, hip hop media executive, music producer and entrepreneur, but perhaps best recognised for his appearance in the recent TV series”Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta”, and for his notorious feud with another rapper, the famous Eminem.

So just how rich is Benzino? Sources estimate that he has a net worth of over $11 million,  earned mainly from the business ventures that he has initiated: he is a co-owner of two magazines, namely “The Source” and “Hip Hop Weekly Magazine”, participated in the reality TV show “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”, worked as a record label executive, on top of making his own music.

Benzino Net Worth $11 Million

In his early days Benzino called himself Raydog, and under this name joined the hip hop band “Almighty RSA”. Continuiong with music, later Benzino founded another band called “Made Men” before moving to a solo career, and managing to release three solo albums. However, Benzino’s musical efforts did not bring him much fame or increase his net worth; it was his achievements in other areas that allowed him reveal his talents and earn his wealth.

In 1988 Benzino started the hip hop magazine “The Source” along with his long-time friend David Mays. Benzino remained a co-owner of the magazine and saw it growing from a one page newsletter to become a major publication. In his later days Benzino also became involved in another media project, a magazine covering articles on urban music, such as rap and hip hot. The magazine is called “Hip Hop Weekly” and is certainly popular among the fans of that kind of music.

Benzino is also known to be a talented businessman who knows how to make money from publicity. That is exactly what he did in 2002, when he got involved in a feud with the rapper Eminem. Benzino called Eminem “2003 Vanilla Ice”, referring to a formerly popular rapper Vanilla Ice, and then it all began. To offend each other the two began making diss tracks: Benzino released such songs as “Pull Your Skirt Up” and “Die Another Day”, while Eminem made “The Sauce” and “Nail in the Coffin”. Benzino went as far as releasing a diss mixtape called “Benzino Presents: Die Another Day: Flawless Victory” with which he attacked not only Eminem himself but also his record label.

Benzino became even more popular when he started to appear in “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”, a reality TV show on in VH1 in 2012. The show depicts the lives of female hip hop artists including Lil Scrappy, Rasheeda and Benzino’s ex girlfriend Karlie Redd. Reportedly, the show added a lot of money to Benzino net worth and he is apparently the richest member of the entire cast.

Unfortunately, Benzino was shot by his nephew in March 2014 during his mother’s funeral, but his wounds were not lethal and he has recovered. Recently his partner Althea Heart has announced that she is expecting their baby in late 2015.
