At just 20 years old, Lil Yachty made $11 million dollars in 2017, enough to land him a spot at number 20 on the Forbes list of the top-earning hip-hop acts of the year.

The self-proclaimed bubble gum rap rapper achieved this by balancing live shows and endorsement deals with the likes of Nautica and Target, to name a few.

In an interview with Vlad TV, Yachty explains his interest in stock investments, keeping his books balanced, and finding alternate sources of revenue.

The rapper revealed that his knowledge of stocks, which has since evolved to include cryptocurrency, came through someone his mother introduced him to.

In addition to his finances, Yachty discusses how being arrested for credit card fraud at 18 was the wake-up call he needed to focus on music.
