Professor Griff Net Worth $5 Million
Professor Griff spent his childhood in his hometown, and right after matriculation from high school was drafted into the US Army. When he returned he established Unity Force, a party security service. His musical beginnings were quite odd; while working in security, he met Carlton Ridenhour, a.k.a. rapper and producer Chuck D, who was a part of the Spectrum City DJ-for-hire service, owned by Hank Shocklee. Griff`s firm and Spectrum City often worked together, and he and Chuck D became close friends. Following the formation of Public Enemy of which Chuck D was a member, he invited Griff to be a sideman. Griff then renamed his Unity Force to the Security of the First World, better known as S1W, and Griff`s group served as dancers to the original lineup of the group, while he himself was road manager, and regarded as ‘Minister of Information’. The group released two albums with him on board, including the debut “Yo! Bum Rush the Show” (1987), which achieved golden status, and “It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” (1989), which topped the US R&B charts, while it achieved platinum status, increasing Griff`s net worth significantly. However, he was fired as a result of several controversial statements he made in interviews.
After that he started his solo career by forming the group Last Asiatic Disciples and has released five albums, including the “Pawns in the Game” (1990), “Kao’s II Wiz*7*Dome” (1991), “Blood of the Profit” (1998), and “And The World Became Flesh” (2001), based on Afrocentric ideas embracing several religions and cultures, but which hasn’t found enormous popularity with the general population, otherwise his net worth could be considerably higher.
When it comes to speak about Professor Griff’s personal life, there is no information in the media about relationships; in free time he is very active on his official Twitter account. Perhaps unsurprisingly Griff was a part of the Nation of Islam, which is a political and religious movement. He has attracted his share of controversy, which has effected his professional career somewhat.
