Young Dro Net Worth: How Rich is The “Yes Sir” Crooner?

Young Dro is a popular black American rapper whose fame we know today is attributed to the release of his hit track titled “Yes Sir” back in 1999.

Despite being one of the big boys who ran things in the early 2000s, Young Dro may not be as famous or wealthy as you would “expect?”.

Stats obtained from his Spotify say it all, as he currently has 454k monthly streams. Compared to some of his counterparts who have millions of monthly streams, that’s “not quite” a pretty neat statistic, but it is a comfortable number.

Young Dro has built wealth through his popular songs, including those from his independent album and many more hits.

His music has earned him numerous nominations and awards, like the BET Mobile Hot Ring Award for “Shoulder Lean” with T.I., which he won in 2006 – the same year he won the Best Rapper Award (Georgia) at the Ozone Awards.

Thanks to his versatile rapping style, Young Dro is estimated to be worth around $500,000.

In 2012, Young Dro leased a $134,000, 2007 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT in January 2008, which is worth less in 2023. The paperwork obtained by TMZ says Dro agreed to pay a $7,500 down payment and then pay monthly payments of $1,606.62. However, according to the lawsuit, Young Dro defaulted on the lease payments and now owes the leasing company $61,220.37. After which, the company has repossessed the Maserati.

Young Dro owns another car, a Cadillac Escalade with 30-inch Rose Gold Rims, attributing the purchase to the influence of Marco. Additional vehicles in his possession include a Charger, a Chevy, and a Benz Coupe.

Young Dro Biography

Young Dro was born D’Juan Montrel Hart on January 15, 1979, in Bankhead, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

He attended Daniel McLaughlin Therrell High School, yet information about his education beyond this period is limited aside from the fact that he dropped out of high school.

Despite his fame, information about his parents and siblings has not yet been shared with the public.

The only information available is that Dro’s father has 21 children, and he is the second eldest child of his mother, who gave birth to 5 children.

While growing up in Bankhead, Dro saw some very unpleasant things. In fact, he came close to dying when he was 16 years old. According to Dro, he said he was shot in the back and the stomach, which rendered him immobile for a year. He was also caught up in a car theft allegation.

In order to ensure that teens do not experience the rough growing up he experienced, Young Dro pioneered the “It Still Takes A Village” campaign and also teamed up with South Fulton leaders to spread the message against gun violence.

Professional Career

Young Dro started writing raps when he was in 9th grade; however, he never considered taking up music as a career path till he saw the successes recorded by his friend Chris “Daddy Mack” Smith.

In view of that, Dro finally linked up with now-popular American rapper T.I. – South Fulton leaders, who were trying to sign him back in 1997.

His breakthrough came in 2006 with the mega-hit “Shoulder Lean” from his first big-label album, “Best Thang Smokin’,” reaching number three on the US Billboard 200 chart.

Over time, he has released six studio albums:

  • “I Got That Dro” (2001) features tracks like ‘Shoulda Known Betta’ and ‘Rubberband Banks’.
  • “Best Thang Smokin’, Pt 2” and “P.O.L.O (Players Only Live Once)” in 2006.
  • “High Times” (2013) with the standout hit ‘FDB’ featuring Yung LA.
  • “Da Reality Show” (2015) signals a shift towards trap music.
  • “Da’ Real Atlanta” (2017).
  • “HyDROponic” (2019).

He has also dropped 21 mixtapes, three compilation albums, and 27 singles (including 17 as a featured artist). His track “Shoulder Lean” featuring “TI” has garnered over 38 million streams on Spotify, while his 2013 song “FDB” has reached 35 million streams.

Currently, he maintains a monthly stream count of 454k. His latest album, “TrenchStar,” consisting of 9 songs, was released on May 20, 2023.

Additionally, Dro’s music has appeared on albums by various artists like Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” and Gucci Mane’s “The Return of East Atlanta Santa Claus Vol 1 & 2.”

Personal Life

Young Dro had a relationship with Fantasia Barrino that lasted two years. Unfortunately, their relationship faced challenges due to balancing his career and their personal life, leading to their eventual separation.

Following this, he entered into a private relationship with Tamika, which he later referenced in his song “FDB” from the 2013 album “High Times.”

In the song, he mentioned conflicts with Tamika regarding their child. However, Tamika publicly countered his claims, stating that despite living nearby, he hadn’t seen their daughter for two years.

In 2016, rumors circulated about Young Dro’s involvement with rapper Joseline Hernandez after they performed together. Shortly after their joint performance, Joseline announced her pregnancy without naming the father.

This fueled speculation that Young Dro might be the father. Despite remaining silent about the matter, he attended the baby shower for Bonnie Bella in December 2016.
