If someone were to tell you the net worth of T.I., would you be surprised?

The man born Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., has come a long way from being a trap music rapper on the local Atlanta scene. He’s now known as a producer, an entrepreneur, a record label executive, an actor, and even a reality star.

No matter what he does, T.I. knows how to generate headlines. Recently, he and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle made headlines when they took a trip to Costa Rica for their anniversary and proceeded to get dragged for their lives for how they looked. T.I. then topped it off with an Instagram video, which you can see above, where he defends DaBaby’s recent homophobic rants at Rolling Loud 2021.

Despite the controversy — or, maybe, because of it — T.I. has grown his net worth in 2021 and beyond.

T.I. Net Worth 2021: $50 Million

According to Celebrity Net Worth, T.I. has a net worth in 2021 of $50 million.

Like many wealthy celebrities, T.I. has a huge investment in real estate — literally. He owns a house in Jonesboro, GA, that’s well over 10,000 square feet and, according to Zillow, worth well over $2 million.

Another source of T.I.’s wealth comes from his extensive music catalog, particularly in the early 2000s. For instance, “Trap Muzik,” an album now considered “iconic” by Hip-Hop standards, reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts — and it was the third of his albums to do so.

TI has also made a handsome salary as an actor. He’s starred in such films as “ATL,” “Takers,” “Get Hard,” and “Identity Thief.” He’s also a part of the Marvel Universe, with his roles in “Ant-Man” and its smash sequel, “Ant-Man and The Wasp.”

Unfortunately, though, T.I.’s net worth took a hit in August 2015, when the IRS filed a $4.5 million lien against him for unpaid taxes in 2012 and 2013.
