Just Blaze Net Worth $20 Million
Just Blaze spent his childhood in his hometown, where as a young boy under the influence of his older cousin, he developed an interest in music. At the beginning, Blaze started working as a DJ, and in no time he decided to turn to the music production side. After matriculation, he enrolled at Rutgers University; however, he quit education after three years of studying to start a career in the music industry.
Blaze began his career in the 1990s working with the rap group Harlem World, producing their songs such as “I Really Like It”, and “Family Crisis”, and afterwards he collaborated with Buckshot on his song “Heavy Weighters”, all which increased his net worth. With the beginning of the 2000s, his name became more known on the rap scene, which enabled him to start working at Roc-A-Fella Records, with such artists as Big Pun on his songs “Off Wit His Head”, and “Wrong Ones”. Later the same year, he produced Busta Rhymes songs “Street Shit”, and “Here We Go Again”, and worked with Kanye West.
After working with Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z became intrigued with Blaze, and the two worked on Jay-Z’s album “The Dynasty: Roc La Familia”, including songs “Streets Is Talking”, “The R.O.C.”, and “Soon You’ll Understand”, among others, which increased his net worth to a large degree, thanks to the popularity the songs gained upon release. After the initial successful collaboration with Jay-Z, the two continued their work together, and produced songs for Jay-Z’s albums “Blueprint”, “Blueprint 2”, “Black Album”, “Kingdom Come”, and “American Gangster”, all of which contributed to the overall size of his net worth.
Just Blaze has also collaborated with Eminem, on his album “Recovery”, which also increased his popularity as well as net worth. To speak further of his accomplishments, Blaze has collaborated with numerous other artists of the rap scene, including Fat Joe, Beenie Man, Chris Brown, among others.
Just Blaze also started his own record label in 2004, entitled Fort Knocks Entertainment, through which he has produced and released several albums on his own, but the main focus of the record label is to promote young and talented hip hop musicians, such as Dave Young, Mrs. Jade, and Quan, among others. This has also increased Blaze’s net worth by a large margin.
