What is Bishop Don "Magic" Juan's Net Worth?

Bishop Don "Magic" Juan is a former pimp, and current hip-hop personality and fashion designer who has a net worth of $300 thousand. Juan began pimping when he was only 16 years old. During this phase in the 1970s, he operated a record store that was actually just a front for his pimping activities. In 1985, Juan retired from pimping claiming divine intervention: "God don't want me to do it no more." Shortly after that, he was ordained as a minister with the Christian Ministers Congress Non-Denominational Council, Inc. He became a mainstream figure after meeting rapper Snoop Dogg backstage at a concert, after which he became friends with the rapper and was even hired as Snoop's "spiritual adviser." Since then, he has been featured in various live rap shows, music videos, TV programs, and films along with established rappers such as 50 Cent, and Da Brat.

Early Life

Bishop Don "Magic" Juan was born on November 30, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois and given the name Donald Campbell. He was raised by both his mother and father and grew up with his sister. His father, who was uneducated, managed to become a successful businessman and entrepreneur and helped Campbell develop his own entrepreneurial spirit. However, Campbell would initially use this spirit for less than legitimate businesses, given his early career in pimping.

Pimping Career

Campbell got involved with pimping from the age of 16 through various connections he had made on the streets of Chicago. He had noticed other successful pimps and began dressing like them and adopting their mannerisms. He also read the books of Iceberg Slim, who had formerly been a pimp before becoming a writer. In the 1970s,  Campbell began operating a record store in Chicago that also doubled as a way for him to recruit prostitutes. He began going by the name Don "Magic" Juan around this time and living a lavish and excessive lifestyle that involved many women, alcohol, and drug use.


However, in 1985, while smoking PCP, Campbell had a spiritual experience which caused him to dedicate his life to serving God. He was later ordained as a minister by Dr. F. L. Johnson of the Christian Ministers Congress Non-Denominational Council, Inc after studying for a few years at the Moody Bible Institute. In 1989, after a few years of preaching, Campbell opened the Magic World Christian Kingdom Church of the Royal Family. While working as a minister, Campbell still maintained his flashy lifestyle and would wear fancy clothing, jewelry, and drive nice cars.

In 1993, Campbell decided to close the church in order to focus on working in the field as a minister of God. In 1994, he published an autobiography called "From Pimp Stick to Pulpit: The Life Story of Don "Magic" Juan."
