Stat quo net worth: Stanley Benton, who is better known by his stage name as Stat Quo, is an American rapper, producer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. He emerged in the rap industry with his album called Statlanta. As of 2016, Stat Quo has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Benton was born on July 24, 1979, in Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up with his mother and grandmother. From the young age of 12, Benton started to rap freestyle and would often even record his raps. Even though he was still continuing his formal education, he was content on having a career in music at the right time when the opportunity would arise.
This mental breakthrough for his career would come in 2003 when he was discovered by Dr. Dre and Eminem who were already superstars in rap. It turned out that his Underground Atlanta mixtapes caught the attention of Eminem who would eventually be signed to both Aftermath Entertainment and Shady Records. With their association, he started off with a single called “Like Dat” and then went to the summer 2005 Anger Management Tour with some big names.
This was a great platform for Benton at the time to gain exposure as well as learn from the very best with the likes of Eminem and 50 Cent. He is featured on some of Eminem’s reputed albums including a compilation album called Eminem Presents the Re-Up and his wildly famous Encore. Benton had been working on his debut album Statlanta since 2003 but he was not happy with how much the album was being delayed back.
