Source of Wealth
His source of wealth and income comes mainly from his music and his earnings as a Record Executive.
Sales from his various songs and tours have understandably brought him a lot of money along the years.
Considering he has been actively making music and money since 1993, it’s not surprising his net worth is this much.
Pusha T was born Terrence LaVar Thorton on May 13, 1977 in Bronx, New York. He has a brother Gene who is also a rapper and a sister whose name is not known.
When Terence was still very young his parents moved the family to Virginia Beach, Virginia.
As teen Terence and Gene got into selling drugs as a way to make money. When there parents discovered what they were doing they threw Gene out of the house.
This meant he had to look for rent money and take care of himself at a young age.
In 1992 the two brother decided to try a career as rappers and formed the group Clipse.
1997: Terrence and his brother gene met Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes and Pharrell helped the brothers get a contract with Elektra Records.
Clipse immediately began working on their first album and actually completed it. Prior to the release of the album they received a single from it entitled “The Funeral.” The song was a commercial failure and Elektra Records cancelled the release of the album and dropped Clipse as artists.
You would think that particular failure would stop or deter him from continuing with his career, but it didn’t.

2003: Clipse began working on their second album.
2004: Work on Clipse second album was suddenly halted when Artisa Records were absorbed into Jive records. Although work on the album began again the Clipse duo grew frustrated due to Jive’ tendency to ignore their Rap artists in favor of those who performed pop.
When frustration boiled over Clipse ask Jive to release them from their contract. Jive refused. Clipse sued Jive and launched their own label Re-Up Records.
2006: Clipse and Jive finally reached an agreement and Clipse’s second album “Hell Hath No Fury” was released. The Hip Hop magazine XXL gave this album an XXL rating making it only the 6th album at the time to receive such a rating.
