The Net Worth of Icy Narco
How rich is Icy Narco? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is at $100,000, earned through a short but successful career in the music industry, in which he’s collaborated with various artists and has also performed in live events around the country. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Music Beginnings
Icy Narco is of Cuban descent; his childhood was filled with numerous troubles, and he has had to fend for himself for most of his life, due to problems within his home and family. With his family having a lot of financial problems, he began by selling drugs to make ends meet, then went further into crime and started robbing people.
However, not wanting to pursue a life of crime, he looked for a stable job, and eventually landed one working at a Cold Stone restaurant, but while attending high school, he had discovered a passion for music, particularly rap, and started participating in rap battles with friends, so gaining a local reputation. He started writing his own music and lyrics, influenced during this period by such as Young Thug, Kanye West, Lil Uzi-Vert, and Chief Keef, and by other acts such as Linkin Park and Nav.
Rise to Fame
Narco believed that a combination of various genres produced his style of music, and so he learned various genres of songs, integrating rock, country, and hip hop into some of his music. However, initially he didn’t think about releasing any of his songs, and was focused on freestyle. That changed in 2017, when he tried his hand at releasing his own music, creating an account on SoundCloud and uploading music there. He released songs continuously; some of his singles that gained attention include “Snowman”, “You” and “Viagra Niagra”.
He really earned fame when he released a remix of “Bank Account”, and also of his freestyle. He saved a bit of money and decided to move to Los Angeles to find more opportunities. He was connected to several music executives, and started gaining the attention of agents, so just a month after moving to a new city, he was signed to the 10K Projects label. The label is known for hosting other popular artists such as Trippie Redd and Tekashi 6ix9ine. Eventually, he started making his own music with the label’s support.

Feuds and Recent Releases
He eventually released the singles “Link” and “Numb & Frozen” the following year, which gained a lot of attention through online websites such as YouTube. The singles were a promotion for his debut album entitled “Frozen Fable”.
In 2017, prior to the release of his music, he got into a physical altercation with Chicago-based rapper FBG Duck, and also had a fight with Lil Pump on one occasion. In 2018, Icy was arrested by Miami Police, apparently after failing to appear in court after a traffic-related incident in which he failed to show motor vehicle registration. His representatives spoke out that he was arrested unfairly, and that the police were keeping him detained and profileing him. While in prison, he was involved in several fights as he was being confused with other people. Eventually a $500 bond was paid, and he was released.
For his personal life, very little is known about any of Icy Narco’s romantic relationships. Many sources state that he is not yet interested in any long term relationship, as he is still young and focused on his music career. He mentioned in interviews that he does not want to make mainstream music, clarified by stating that he wants to have a mainstream following but does not want to make the same music that is coming from a lot of mainstream artists. He criticized a lot of popular music today, stating that it doesn’t have real meanings or real emotion. He then said he wanted to take his style as far as he possibly could, and wants to work with producers as well as labels which don’t try to control his sound.
Similar to other rappers, he is highly active online through accounts on social media – on Instagram he showcases some of his daily endeavors and a few personal pictures about his lifestyle, including travels and some of the public events he’s attended. He’s also posted pictures with other popular artists. He has a Twitter account on which he posts some of his daily thoughts and content similar to that of his Instagram account. He remains active on SoundCloud, and continues to release music for free through the platform. His music can also be heard on other online platforms such as YouTube and Spotify.
