Sam Adams Net Worth
Sam Adams net worth: Sam Adams is an American rapper and producer who has a net worth of $5 million. Sam Adams, also known as the Wiz, is one of America's brightest hip-hop, electronic and Dubstep stars. Coming from a middle-class family, Adams emerged as a soccer star in high school before attending Hobart and William Smith Colleges where he was involved in the Statesman soccer team. Adams then moved on to Trinity College where he was the captain of the college's soccer team. But his musical talent emerged one day in a college dormitory. The 24 year old from Cambridge, Massachusetts started to record his songs only using a MacBook and over the next couple of years he recorded untold amount of material which would be used in later releases.
By 2010, Adams released, I Hate College, a remake of Asher Roth's I Love College, on YouTube and then iTunes. Adam's first release caught the attention of the 1`st Round record label and was able to release his debut album, Boston Boys. The fifteen-track album peaked at number 73 on the Billboards 200 and peaked at number one on the iTunes hip-hop chart, beating old-timers Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled to the hot spot. Boston Boys sold a staggering 8,000 digital copies in the first week. The single from the album, Driving Me Crazy, peaked at number eight on the iTunes hip-hop singles chart. However, Adams wasn't able to enjoy the success of his debut album; the major record labels, accused the new rapper of buying his own records in a bid to top the charts. To date, there is no concrete evidence that support the allegations. Shocked by the accusations, Adam's response was 'it was the word of mouth that fueled the success of the album.' He added: with success there is pain and there are a lot of people who wish they were in my position.'
