Christopher Brian Bridges or Ludacris’ net worth as of now stands at $35 Million. He was featured in the Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2015 List by Forbes at #18, earning $8M that year from Movies & Albums’ revenue. This was the highest amount Ludacris has earned in a year.

Earnings adding to Ludacris’ Net Worth

Music & Albums

Having a Music Management Degree from Georgia State, Ludacris garnered a kickstart in his career. His first album in the year 2000 – Back for the First Time reached #4 on the US Billboard 200 Charts, earning him $150,000 only from album sales.

  • Word of Mouf (2001) – Earnings nearly $5M
  • Chicken-n-Beer (2003) – Earnings $2.6M
  • The Red Light District (2004) – Earnings nearly $3M

However, in his albums released after that, the success graph of Ludacris’ albums went down. He got approximately $1.2M sales revenue from Theater of the Mind (2008) & Battle of the Sexes (2010) combined.

Conclusion

Ludacris’ net worth is much lesser compared to the new-age rappers such as Diddy or Drake. This is because the time when Ludacris was a hit, the industry was not bringing so much revenue to each artist.

Drake makes a lot of money from royalties provided by the music streaming services like Apple Music and Google Play. From 2001 to 2005 when Ludacris was famous, there were no such services. In fact, there was no YouTube as well! Therefore, Ludacris’ earnings during that time were only from album sales.
