Young Lyric is an aspiring rapper who has already been compared to industry giants like Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne. The breakout star of Lifetime TV’s ‘The Rap Game’ is destined for superstardom as she is on the verge of a huge career in hip hop. Driven by the dream of becoming the best entertainer in the world, Young Lyric is about to embark on an incredible, inspiring journey that will keep everyone watching for years to come.
Originally from Houston, Texas, Young Lyric was born on 30 July 2000 under the star sign Leo. Her birth name is Lyric Michelle Ragston. The 20-year-old rapper is American by nationality and belongs to African-American ethnicity. She attended Ridge Point High School.
Net Worth, Salary, and Income
Lyric developed a love for dance and Hip Hop at an early age. She recorded her first song when she was only seven and did a video to Young Jeezy’s Lose My Mind at the age of nine. In October 2010, she created a self-titled YouTube channel and started posting original and cover songs.
Before competing in Lifetime’s hip-hop reality competition The Rap Game in 2016, Lyric had already established herself as a YouTube sensation and released her debut album, Princess. However, The Rap Game gave her immense exposure and mentorship.
On 21 August 2020, Lyric released her highly anticipated seven-track EP The Real Lyric Michell Vol. 1, with features by XO, Slim Jxmmi, and Yungeen Ace. She is currently working on her upcoming album Future Queen, which will have 14 tracks with features by YBN Almighty Jay, Slim Jxmmi, and Tokyo Jetz.
The self-claimed Hip Hop Princess has accumulated an enormous fortune from her music career. She has been continuously releasing hit singles, adding up thousands of dollars to her total net worth. As of December 2020, Lyric’s net worth is estimated at $3 million.
Dating, Boyfriend, and Affairs
The aspiring rapper is already taken and not open to dating somebody. She is currently in a relationship with Shakur Stevenson. Her boyfriend is an American professional boxer who represented the United States at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Besides, Stevenson held the WBO featherweight title from 2019 to July 2020.
Lyric made her relationship with Stevenson Instagram official on 17 December 2020. The rapper shared a series of pictures with her boyfriend, where she can be seen kissing him. The couple is head over heels for each other and seems inseparable.
Lyric often finds herself at the center of a rumor frenzy. Back in 2018, a rumor swirled around the internet that said the rap queen had an abortion in the past. She addressed the gossip in an interview saying the rumor was false. Similarly, she was also romantically linked with rapper NBA YoungBoy in 2019. But the rumored couple never confirmed their relationship.
Family, Parents, and Siblings
Lyric was born to parents Mitchell Ragston III and Olivia Ragston. Her father and uncle were aspiring musicians and even had a recording studio connected to her bedroom. Furthermore, her father is an owner and producer of Bad Akktor Records.
A passion for music is something she and her sister, Haley Ragston, share with their father. It’s her father who coined the name ‘Young Lyric’ for her.
