In 2011 Richard got a deal with Young and Dangerous Clothing and was later named as the Most Popular Breakthrough MC. Both his father and mom were missionaries, so during his youth Richard was hauled all all over the world, from Germany and Egypt to La, Chicago and Cleveland, according to where his parents were sent to do evangelism.

Although unceasing traveling was rather nerve-racking for the child, this expertise was useful at least in one aspect: it enabled Richard to learn foreign languages and expand his horizons. At a young age Baker was determined by the rap of Ludacris. Only to remind you of his accomplishments, Ludacris isn’t just an award winning actor and rapper, but also a co founder of an effective imprint Disturbing the Peace. His careers in movie and music business have fostered Ludacris fortune to $65 million, a sum that makes MGK net worth seem rather small.

Lace Up, Richards next work, was recorded in under three months, when the artist went through a creative outburst. His long awaited debut album, entitled Half Naked & Almost Famous, was completed by springtime 2012. Despite high expectations and the success of single “Wild Boy”, the record’s sales were fairly small. It distributed 8.5 thousand copies during the week after its launch scarcely entered Billboard 200.

Using his savings and small earning from his performances, Richard equipped his home studio and began working on his next mixtape. MGK net worth increase and his ascendance to stardom began in 2009, when the rapper featured on MTV’s show Sucker Free Freestyle.
