Keith Powers’ Net Worth May Shock You

Keith Powers Net Worth

The 2015 film Straight Out of Compton brought a number of young actors to the spotlight. One of them being Keith Powers. Although he has been acting for a number of years, people didn’t really begin to recognize him until after playing Tyree in the hit film. What has this mild success done for Keith Powers’ net worth?

About Keith Powers

A little known fact about Powers is that he was the cousin of Rodney King. Born on August 22, 1992, in Sacramento, California, he was the oldest of four. At the young age of nine, he began modeling but found a passion for sports as he grew older. During high school, he played wide receiver on the football team before moving to Los Angeles with his dad to pursue a career in modeling.

In 2014, that career began really taking off when he walked for Calvin Klein in Men’s Fashion Week in Milan. After that, he was able to land modeling deals with Sears, JCPenny, Sketchers, and became the face of Aeropostale.

Outside of his modeling career, Powers has spent some time acting as well. In 2013, he played his first role in House Party: Tonight’s the Night. Then, after flying to South Africa for a photo shoot, he decided to make acting his main focus. Powers went on to play Gutta in BET’s Tales and Cameron Drake in the Netflix original Reality High. You may have also seen Powers in the MTV series Faking It. He also played roles in the The New Edition Story and Famous in Love. Currently, he stars in What If (2019), a Netflix original series.

However, most folks know him from his role in the hit 2015 film Straight Outta Compton. The movie was an unexpected box office hit. He played the hip hop artist Tyree in the film.

On top of this success, he’s been featured in hit shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Fear The Walking Dead, and even appeared on Wild N’ Out. But what have these career moves done for Powers’ wealth?

Keith Powers Net Worth: $1 Million

Because most of his roles have been smaller, Keith Powers’ net worth sits right around $1 million. Much of his net worth has stemmed from his modeling career, despite his work on screen.

The bulk of his money has come from his modeling deals with Calvin Klein and Aeropostale. In fact, his face became recognizable for promoting Aero. Annually, models pull in between $32,000 and $48,000. When you factor in taxes and regular living expenses, that isn’t a ton of cash. With his acting career, he only makes a few additional thousand per year (until this part of his career takes off).

Although Straight Outta Compton grossed $201.6 million worldwide, Powers played a smaller role in the film, so he didn’t earn as much as other actors in the film. His other roles have been minor roles or smaller projects, making his earnings low.

Powers is not married and tends to keep his love life under wraps. So, unless someone comes through his life and drastically changes that, he won’t be intermingling his finances with anyone else any time soon.

Compared to other hit-movie stars, his $1 million net worth isn’t much. It is important to keep in mind Powers has only been acting for six years. With him landing more roles with Netflix, TV roles, and big screen acting gigs, it can be assumed his net worth will increase in the years to come.
