About Styles P
David Styles, professionally known as Styles P, is an American hip hop recording artist, entrepreneur and author. He rose to the prominence in the late 1990s, performing with hip hop band The LOX and later joined Ruff Ryders. Together with the LOX David has recorded three albums: Money, Power & Respect, We Are the Streets and We Are the Streets 2. As a solo artist he debuted in the early 2000s, with an album A Gangster and a Gentleman. In addition to his music career Styles has tried his hand in writing. In 2010 he published a novel entitled Invincible. He also runs a bar in Bronx known as Juice for Life. As for 2013, Styles P net worth is estimated at $3 million.
As we have already mentioned, Styles P net worth growth began in the mid 1990s, when he and two fellow rappers, Sheek Louch and Jadakiss, formed the band The LOX. Soon the guys landed a deal with Bad Boy Records and released their debut album Money, Power & Respect. The album’s lead song, which was titled exactly the same, became a major hit and was eventually included in the 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop list, created by VH1.
Due to the popularity of this single the album enjoyed a considerable commercial success and reached the third position on Billboard 200.
Their second album We Are the Streets, which reached the stores two years later, was also met enthusiastically and even required a second pressing. These albums had an important role in turning the three rappers into millionaires. Talking about Styles colleagues, Sheek Louch has some $3 million in his account, while Jadakis currently owns capital and assets that are evaluated twice as highly as Styles P net worth: at $6 million. It is a little known fact that the LOX members have also credited for their contribution in writing such international hits as “We’ll Always Love Big Papa”, “It’s all about the Benjamins”, Honey (by Mariah Carey), “Last Day” (Notorious B.I.G.) and “Can’t Get You off My Mind” (by Mary J. Blige).
Two years after the band’s last CD appeared in the market, Styles released his debut studio album, A Gangster and a Gentleman. It consisted of 24 tracks featuring variety of artists, such as Swizz Beatz, Angie Stone, Eve and the members of the LOX. The album received rather positive critical evaluations, charted 6th on Billboard 200 and made a solid contribution to Styles P net worth. In 2002 it received Gold certificate from the Recording Industries Association of America. Since then this rapper and entrepreneur has released five more albums: Time is Money, Super Gangster, Master of Ceremonies, The World’s Most Hardest MC Project and Float.
