Stallionaire: How Megan Thee Stallion's $8 Million Net Worth Came From A Variety of Smart Business Deals

Megan Thee Stallion has made a lot of smart money moves in just a short period of time. And she was able to do that thanks to diversifying her investments.

The “Hot Girl” originally got her start in the industry by uploading freestyle videos to Instagram. And it wasn’t long before she earned a large and loyal following. She moved “Like A Stallion” in 2016 to make business moves that included strategic partnerships, sponsorships, and endorsements. Today, she’s one of the richest women in the industry — not to mention one of the most popular — and the popularity of her music is only part of the reason why.

But, as AfroTech previously reported, Tina Snow isn’t just a mogul in the making. Rather, she also has a generous spirit. As we previously reported, she recently announced plans to give one lucky graduating high school or current college student a full-tuition scholarship to attend the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports, and Entertainment at Long Island University (LIU).

These smart business moves have led Megan Thee Stallion to get an $8 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth, in less than five years in the industry. And she’s showing no signs of slowing down.

“Megan Thee Stallion has cultivated a stage persona characterized by confident, overt sexuality. In terms of her music, she is known for her explicit lyrics and wordplay,” reports the outlet, who also point out that her lyrical wordplay has earned her the respect of her peers.

Let’s take a look at her investments, business ventures, and more. If nothing else, she’s proven that being a “hot girl” isn’t just about looking good. Rather, it’s about making good business decisions and taking care of your health and your body, too.

Even though Megan Thee Stallion is just getting started in the mainstream hip-hop industry, she’s already made quite the impact on the charts. The first album she dropped was her critically-acclaimed mixtape, “Fever,” which she followed up with 2020’s “Suga” and her debut studio album, “Good News,” which also dropped in 2020. All three of those albums hit the Billboard Top 200. The “Savage” remix with Beyoncė was Megan Thee Stallion’s first No. 1 hit, which she followed up with the super-smash hit, “WAP,” with Cardi B.

In August 2021, Megan Thee Stallion teamed up with CashApp in a much-publicized partnership. As AfroTech reported, this partnership involved the creation of instructional videos, giveaways, and more. “It’s the new digital currency that’s been getting a lot of hype,” she said. “Bitcoin is a new kind of money. While the cash in your wallet is issued and regulated by governments, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. Like a wild stallion, it can’t be controlled by anyone.”
