Emtee net worth is really not known as he hasn't revealed it to the public.
He only started earning from music when he was 17 years old. He was also a member of Marimba, and he participates in more provincial competitions where he won cash prizes, which motivated him to work harder and spend more time improving his skills as a rap artist. Emtee was not spending more time to his academics as compared to the time he spent making music and so his studies were significantly affected. As it would be expected, the rapper did not perform so well and so, he lacked a chance to join a tertiary institution to continue his studies. This, however, did not deter him from following his dreams of being one of South Africa's most celebrated rappers.
Emtee's effort towards his music venture resulted in his first collaboration with a South African rapper known as Maraza in 2010 in a hit titled ‘in it to win it.' 2015 was his lucky year and a year when he would rise above his status and be noticed in the music industry. Emtee had a friend who happened to be a producer too, and he produced ‘roll up', the song that brought Emtee into the limelight. Emtee claimed that it only took two hours to have the song produced. The song became a massive airplay and resulted in taking a number one spot on YMF's DJ speedstas.

Emtee won the award of the nomination song of the year awards at the South African hip hop awards because of the ‘roll up' track. The new status of Emtee that brought him into the limelight was not just found on a silver platter. Emtee was also involved in some scandals.

The record had the privilege of being produced by the best producers in South Africa who were Ruff, Tweezy Christer, Lunatik, Ron Epidemic, and Bize boy. This album features Sjava, Saudi andcthe Nigerian finest Tiwa Savage. This 20 track album is quite an emotional story since it was named after Emtee's street brother who is currently dead.
