Tyga is an incredibly hard working performer, sometimes racking up more than 60 concert appearances per year. Most of these are in night clubs and theaters. However, the Between the Sheets tour in 2015 with Chris Brown and Trey Songz brought in $22 million in total revenue. An estimated $3.7 million of this pumped up the Tyga net worth figure in 2015.

Endorsements and Tyga Net Worth

Tyga has earned an estimated $6 million in endorsement money since 2010. The rap star has had high profile endorsement deals with Foot Locker, Reebok, SOL Headphones and Porsche.

The Reebok ad below hilariously teams Tyga up with Shaq. The pair have a conversation, but Shaq is so much taller than Tyga that the rapper has to use a mechanical lift. At the end, Shaq gets in a dig about Tyga’s age, saying his shoes were made before the singer was born.

Merchandise and Tyga Net Worth

Tyga net worth calculationsTyga has earned an estimated $$1.5 million from sales of merchandise since 2008. We estimated Tyga’s merchandise sales at 20% of his concert tour earnings. The star sells tee shirts, hats and other Tyga goods at his concerts and online.

Tyga Net Worth Calculations

Net worth isn’t just earnings. Taxes, expenses and investment income figure into the mix. Tyga lives in California. That gives him a 13.3% state tax bracket. Since he makes over a million a year, he also has a 39.6% federal tax bracket. Add in a 10% expense bill for concert production, music production and cost of living and over 60% of Tyga’s income gets used before he sees it. It’s even possible Tyga spends more. He might spend 20% on expenses or 30%. If so, the Tyga net worth figure would be a lot lower than our estimate.

Is Tyga Broke?

Is Tyga Broke?Tyga has reportedly failed to make payments on his Mercedes SUV. He has also been in trouble with landlords for not paying rent. But is he really broke or is he just lazy?

It’s hard to imagine Tyga could be broke, with $30 million in earnings since 2008. However, it does happen. Kanye West also famously cried poverty in 2016. All the Tyga net worth figures in this article are estimates based on sales figures and media reports. We don’t have access to his private financials. It’s possible Tyga spent a lot more than our estimates indicate. For example, he might have spent more than we’ve figured on concert and music production. He also might have spent millions on an extravagant lifestyle alone. It happens.

The more probable answer though is that Tyga simply isn’t paying his bills because he doesn’t feel like it. The rapper is somehow getting money to produce more albums and put on more concerts, and that isn’t cheap.
