The Kid Laroi Net Worth $1.4 Million
Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard (born 17 August 2003), professionally known as the Kid Laroi (stylised as The Kid LAROI.), is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is from one of the many Indigenous Australian Nations, the Kamilaroi people from which he derived his artist name “Laroi”. Born in Waterloo, New South Wales, he originally gained recognition from his association and friendship with late rapper Juice Wrld, who mentored him while he was on tour in Australia. Laroi gained a local following before joining a partnership agreement with Lil Bibby’s Grade A Productions and Columbia Records. He became known outside Australia with his song “Let Her Go”, and gained further popularity with his song “Go” featuring Juice Wrld, which peaked at number 52 on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut mixtape F*ck Love (2020) peaked at number one on the Australian ARIA Charts, making him the youngest Australian solo artist ever to reach the top. It also reached number three on the US Billboard 200.
Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard was born on 17 August 2003 in Waterloo, New South Wales, a suburb near Redfern in the inner south of Sydney. His parents are Nick Howard, a music producer and sound engineer who worked with local artists, and Sloane Howard, a model manager and music executive. Howard’s great-great grandfather was a part of the Stolen Generation; he was taken from his family, placed into a white family and was told he was Spanish because of his darker complexion. His great-great grandfather later found out that he was Aboriginal when he was 18. He is Kamilaroi (or Gamilaraay) from which he derived his artist name “Laroi”.
Howard attended the highly selective, prestigious private school Australian Performing Arts Grammar School. He spent much of his childhood relocating around New South Wales. He moved to Broken Hill, a remote outback city, at the age of seven, living with his mother and grandparents at the time. When he was 11, Howard’s uncle was murdered, and his mother moved back to Waterloo. Howard began to take music more seriously and started rapping around the age of 13, citing that music was a method of escaping from his family struggles. From a young age, his mother would play him music by the Fugees, Erykah Badu and Tupac.
