According to Today, the 43-year-old American rapper and producer won the money on Wednesday (January 18, 2023), following a lawsuit he brought against Celsius Energy Drink in 2021.
The artist has worked with other rappers like Rick Ross and DJ Khaled, and their collaborations can be heard on multiple hit mixtapes.
So, how much money does the rapper reportedly have, and has that amount altered since the lawsuit? This is what we have learned thus far.
FLO Rida Net Worth
The American rapper Flo Rida is worth an estimated $50 million. Flo Rida, real name Tramar Lacel Dillard, used to hit the road with Fresh Kid Ice of the 2 Live Crew when he was just a youngster.
By 2006, he was making appearances on notable mixtapes, like as DJ Khaled’s “We the Best on Bitch I’m from Dade County.” Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, Trina, and Dr. Dre (of Cool & Dre) were among the other artists he shared the stage with.
Soon after, he inked a deal with Poe Boy Records, which is distributed by Atlantic. In March of 2008, he dropped an album called “Mail on Sunday.” The leading single “Low,” which features T-Pain, topped the Billboard Hot 100. After disappearing for a year, he reappeared with the album “R.O.O.T.S. (Route of Overcoming the Struggle).” That CD had a huge hit with “Round.”
Tracks in the 2010 album “Only 1 Flo, Pt. 1” were produced by club music superstar David Guetta. On his 2012 album “Wild Ones,” artists like Dr. Luke, Avicii, and Axwell all made contributions. There were two huge hits on the album: “Whistle” and “Good Feeling.”
How Flo Rida Went From Amateur Rapper to Hip-Hop Superstar?
Flo Rida is the stage name of American rapper, musician, and vocalist Tramar Lacel Dillard. Over the years, beginning with his first single “Low,” he has produced a string of hit singles and albums that have made him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. His passion for music began at a young age, and he eventually became a member of the amateur rap group GroundHoggz.
His brother-in-law was the hype guy for a local rap group called “2 Live Crew,” which greatly expanded his exposure to hip-hop. He first inked a deal with ‘Poe Boy Entertainment’ in an effort to break into the music business.
His Atlantic Records debut single, titled “Low,” was a huge success, topping charts around the world and shattering records for digital downloads and album sales to earn him multiple platinum certifications. The single appeared on both his debut album Mail on Sunday and the film’s official soundtrack, Step Up 2: The Streets.
Moving forward, he produced a number of successful singles and albums, including “Wild Ones,” “Right Round,” and “Whistle,” as well as “R.O.O.T.S.”
Flo Rida Wins $82.6 Million Lawsuit Against Celsius

In a lawsuit to be launched in 2021, Flo’s attorneys will argue that the provisions of the contract entitle the rapper to 500,000 shares automatically, regardless of whether or not the sales “units” are met. If all targets were met, Flo Rida would have been entitled to one percent ownership.

They say the contract was quite general. In other words, it seems to have lacked both a definition of what “unit” was and a timetable for when certain benchmarks should be reached. A unit could have been one serving, one package, one case, etc. Lawyers for Flo Rida further claimed that their client was not informed of Celsius’ financial success, making it impossible for him to know if, how, or when any targets were met.
After Flo Rida filed suit against Celsius in 2021, he was ultimately vindicated by a jury on January 19, 2023. In that court action, the jury found Flo Rida and awarded him $82.6 million in damages from Celsius.
