DDG (real name is Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr.) a.k.a. PontiacMadeDDG is American rapper, songwriter and Youtuber. He has net worth of 5 million USD as of 2022 which makes him a very young millionaire. The main source of his income today is songwriting and rapping, although in the previous years he made a good fortune with his YouTube channels (almost 8 million subscribers combined) which now are abandoned.
How Did DDG Get Rich? Biography
Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr. was born into a working family of 7 in Pontiac, Michigan. His father was working at a audio studio, which defined DDG’s passion for music when he was a kid. But before he got into his dream life there was some work done.
As Internet connection got better and better, more and more people started to watch video online on popular platforms one of which was YouTube. That’s where DDG career has started with a launch in 2011 of his gaming channel called GamingWithDDG and his vlogging channel ‘PontiacMadeDDG VLOGS‘ in 2014. At a time he was a student of Central Michigan University but in 2016 he dropped out of it, since he was already making over 30 000 USD per month by making gaming and vlogging videos.
In the same year he released his first songs ‘Free Parties’ and Balenciagas’. But the first real success came with a release of track ‘Lettuce’ made in cooperation with Famous Dex. It got 500 thousand views in just one hour and it instantly brought necessary attention from rap and hip-hop community which resulted in a contract with WorldstarHipHop that got exclusive rights for distribution of the video.
After releasing a few more songs he got his first major deal with Epic Records in June 2018. This was the time when DDG started slowly abandoning his YouTube career and focusing purely on writing and releasing new songs. His second most viewed song ‘Arguments’ was released the same month:
Years 2018-2019 were exceptionally good in DDG’s rapping career. He got his first million at a time, was in a relationship and his childhood dream started becoming a reality. One of the most famous song of the time was ‘Hold Up’ made in a collaboration with Queen Naija. Old fans were supportive as well, chanting ‘Where’s my DDG squad at?’ bringing even more attention to the your rapper.
Another boost to his career was release of ‘Moonwalking in Calabasas Remix’ featuring Blueface (DDG definitely should do more of these, it’s very super effective!) which is the highest-watched video of all on his YouTube channel and first song to enter Billboard Top 100. This, combined with promoting his songs over Spotify (over 5 million listeners monthly) and Instagram (over 4 million followers) brought him additional 3 millions as well as fame and glory.
Overall, in 2022 DDG is reported to have net worth more than 5 million USD. Being a famous rapper is definitely a way to go if you want to become a rich person and Darryl is on his way to make even more with a help of professional promoters.

He became a millionaire at the age of 19 while still being a gamer and vlogger. It was reported, that in year 2016 his net worth was $1.2 million.
At the end of 2017 it increased by 50% resulting in $1.8 USD.
This increase in net worth continued in the next years as well as DDG become more and more successful, releasing new music video and signing rich contracts. For example, in 2019 his net worth was over 3 million USD and in 2020 it was already over $4 million dollars.
