In his tenth year of life, Ab-Soul was diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome which caused his lips to become darker, and his sight was hindered. Two years later, he started rapping and writing music, but it wasn’t after high school that he started taking music more seriously.

As early as 2002, Ab-Soul had his first song recorded, and in 2005 he signed a contract with StreetBeat Entertainment.

He then ventured on a tour, which only increased his net worth, but soon returned to the studio to work on his next full-length album, which came out in May 2012 under the title “Control System”, and was a major improvement on his debut album, as his second release reached the top 10 on the US Rap chart, then peaked at No. 12 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and reached No. 91 on the US Billboard 200 chart,. He continued to improve year after year, reaching out to more people, which resulted in better charting of his next album, “These Days” (2014), which peaked at No.
2 on the US Rap, and US R&B/Hip-Hop chart, while it also landed at the No. 11 on the US Billboard 200 chart, which increased his net worth by a large margin.
