DJ Premier Wiki Biography

We all know DJ Premier as one of the most influential personalities in American show business, as he has earned net worth valued to be more than $20 million. DJ Premier’s real name is Christopher Edward Martin, but he is also known for other names – Premo, Chris Martin, Christopher E. Martin and Primo. He is not only a producer, but also a musician and businessman, and he has even appeared in some movies, such as “God Vs. Tha Devil”, “Time 2 Chill”, “Planet of the Beats” and “Step Ya Game Up”.

DJ Premier Net Worth $20 Million

C. E. Martin was born on March 21, 1966, in Brooklyn, NY, U. S. His career started in 1984, when Premier began earning his own net worth. Today we know him as a member of the band called “Gang Starr” – together with this band DJ Premier released his debut musical album in 1989, which was entitled “No More Mr. Nice Guy”. It was maybe not as successful as we can expect from DJ Premier, but still Premo’s net worth increased as “No More Mr. Nice Guy” hit number 83 on the U. S. Billboard Top R&B and Hip Hop albums. It was a great beginning for a rising star.

Later the popularity of “Gang Starr” started to rise, but DJ Premier himself earned a huge part of his net worth because he managed to collaborate with many influential names in show business and particularly the music industry. For example, he worked with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Biggie and Jay Z, so now you can better understand how rich DJ Premier is, as he then had an opportunity to produce one of the greatest albums in the history of Hip Hop music. Later he also worked with Notorious B. I. G., famous Ludacris and Xzibit, so Primo’s net worth could only rise with every active year in the industry of entertainment.

Nowadays DJ Premier’s net worth is so big also because he is an owner of Year Round Records record company. But this is not all the spheres where Premier has shown his talent – he is also a host of the popular radio program called “Live From HeadQCortez”, and this show which lasts for two hours is being aired on Satellite Radio’s Hip Hop Nation every fortnight.

However, Premier’s net worth was not established only because of his active life in Hip Hop genre – he is also known as a personality who collaborated with such a popular band as Limp Bizkit – and this band is known not only for its influence on Hip Hop, but also plays such genres as alternative metal, nu metal, hard rock and glam metal.

Today DJ Prime’s estimated net worth is definitely the result of all his efforts which he has made while trying to improve his skills as a record producer. He has not only collaborated with numerous famous actors, but also earned huge sums of money as a result.

Now you know everything about the estimated net worth of DJ Premier.
