Net worth of Offset
Offset has known success for a limited time, so he does not have such a huge net worth when compared to other rappers in the industry. In just over 6 years of success however, he has accumulated a net worth of around $5.5 million. This is remarkable when the time span is considered, and deserves praise. Since he made all of it purely from his rap career, if we take into account the ever-growing success and popularity of Migos, his net worth can only go up in the coming years. The group is producing albums regularly, and collaborating with other artists. They are still only starting.
