Lil Nas X’s net worth and money earned from ‘Old Town Road’

Lil Nas X is a Grammy-winning artist who broke records with a debut single that is always stuck in our heads three years later, so obviously yeah: he’s rich. So rich that even though he had never blessed the world with Montero and had fair abandoned “Old Town Road”, he would be a millionaire. But how much money does Lil Nas X have, exactly? Enough to make room for him Forbes‘s “30 Under 30,” a swanky LA mansion and several pairs of Satan sneakers, so let’s get to it.

How much did Lil Nas X make with ‘Old Town Road’?

Again: you’re just not ready. And actually, before I go into detail, just FYI that Lil Nas literally only spent $50 making this song: $30 buying the beat from producer YoungKio + $20 recording at the Atlanta studio CinCoYo. Keep that in mind as we continue because it makes its benefits even more incredible.

According to Forbes, Lil Nas X earned an estimated $14 million before taxes from the song in 2020, when it was at its peak. Of course, this number has undoubtedly increased since ForbesThe 2020 “30 Under 30” list of 2020 has dropped, but the thing is, it went from a $50 investment to $14 million in profit.

Side note: The sample Lil Nas X used for “Old Town Road” was actually from Nine Inch Nails, which means they got a big chunk of the profits from “Old Town Road.” But he’s not embarrassed. “Fortunately, Trent Reznor [and Atticus Ross] approved the sample because if he didn’t, I don’t know where I would be right now,” Lil Nas said. Variety. “I don’t know if they have 50%, but they get a good [size] share of royalties, which they 100% deserve. I mean, the song wouldn’t be here without them. I was, like, ‘I don’t care if he takes 99% of the royalties – just let the song stay out.’ ‘Cause I can build on it, you know?

And speaking of building on his debut hit, Lil Nas X has obviously released a ton of music since “Old Town Road,” including Montero. BBut those dollar figures aren’t readily available, so I’m just going to assume… he made even more millions?

He has at least $2 million tied up in real estate

However, the shoes were technically Nikes and the company wasn’t exactly okay with them being made, so they sued and won a bid to stop sales. Womp! But whatever the reason…

Lil Nas X’s total net worth is $7 million

At least according to Celebrity Net Worth! And if you’re like “wait… but didn’t he make $14 just from ‘Old Town Road’?” The answer is yes! But taxes take a big chunk out of that income, as do expenses, overhead, and fancy purchases like that aforementioned $2.4 million home. Oh, and before you go, know that Lil Nas X also earns undisclosed income from endorsements (like his Super Bowl commercial, for starters). More recently, he was spotted in an ad for UE Fits custom headphones, one of his first appearances since December:
