Plies Net Worth $14 Million
Algernod Lanier Washington‘s home is Fort Meyers, Florida, US, where he was born on July 1, 1976. Plies never was thinking about becoming a musician while studying at Fort Myers Senior High School – actually he was much more interested in football and played in the team.
The musical career which helped Plies to build his own net worth started after 1990, when together with his stepbrother Ronnel Lawrence Lavatte (or simply Big Gates) they established their own record label which was entitled Big Gates Records.

The debut of Plies as a rapper whch increased his net worth and let him continue his successful career as a musician, was in 2007, when he released “The Real Testament”. The first try definitely was successful – it hit number 2 on US Billboard 200, and more than 96,000 copies were sold in the first week after the release date.

Both of them were extremely successful in the United States, and then also in the rest of the world, and Plies’s net worth just got bigger in hese few years.
