Tsu Surf, who is originally named as Rahjon Cox and also known as The Devil’s Grandson, is a rapper based in New York known for his domineering collection of rap pieces. Cox found his way to fame through his experiences in the battle rap arena wherein he expressed such talent that he did not know would push him to a higher level of artistry and performance. With all this career success, Tsu Surf net worth in 2023 is approximately more than $2 million.
How Did Tsu Surf Become Rich?
Cox was born on January 15, 1990 in New Jersey to both Afro-American parents. They were a mediocre family, but he was raised in a place with a lot of crimes and other illegal activities going on. Since no parent would want harm towards their son, Cox was very protected at that time. He was told to just stay at home in fear of his parents that he would be involved in unpleasant activities. Despite all these, Cox was still introduced to a bent lifestyle. He began giving his time to the people of their neighborhood who were nothing but bad influences to him and each other. He got exposed to various illegal activities such as drug-dealing.
On a positive note, Cox has always had a knack for music. He was heavily inspired by the famous rappers, Jada Kiss and Jay Z. Further improving his exceptional talent, he was able to be featured in different rap events or so-called “battles” in which he competed with several rappers like Geechi Gotti, Rum Nitty, and Hollow da Don.
Cox also had a chance to collaborate with Joe Budden on numerous projects. With his strong lyrical brilliance and wordplay, he continued working hard until he featured Kevin Durant in one of his songs entitled “Want It”. Unfortunately, in 2017, he was imprisoned for aggravated assault charges. Prior to this, he was also known for having charges related to guns, but in 2018, the hashtag Free Cox trended online and Cox was always mentioned in rap battles.
In January 2019, he released his album, Seven25, as his way of transitioning from the battle rap era. The said album earned significant spots on iTunes and Billboard which features MOZZY. Moreover, its second single features Tokyo Jet and Beanie Siegel.
The year 2019 had been nothing but one of Cox’s best ones. He fully established himself as an artist. At that time, his album hit the charts at the same year that he was defending his title as one of the best battle rappers in the world.
From being one of too many battlers, he has become a host in the same SMACK/URL events he used to participate in. Despite this transition, Cox believes that the battler in him will never go away from his spirit, as he started everything from the battle era, and has credited him as a veteran rapper of the arena.
Cox sealed his 2019 with a collaboration with MOZZY once again and worked with several others like Don Q and Boosie Badazz in their album entitled Blood Cuzzins. The next year, he released a follow-up for Blood Cuzzins which is his project named “MSKYM” which stands for “Make Sure You Kill Me”. This has been dedicated to his “new” chance in life which also showcased Cox’s incredible talent in lyricism and collaborations.
The famous rapper continues promoting MSKYM in 2021 wherein he dropped its Deluxe version in January. Cox also confirmed that he has another mixtape and album coming up which will both feature more collaborations with biggest artists in the industry. He is surely dedicated to achieve more and show the world how his talent is worth sharing beyond the United States.
