However, it does not look like Johnson wasn’t aware that this quote was said by Top G, as he did not mention Tate’s name while quoting him. Moreover, this did not sit well with his brother Tristan Tate, who called out the Fast and Furious star for not giving due credit to his brother.
Tate was a relatively unknown figure on social media in the past. Interestingly, he has claimed that he is very new to the workings of social media, only creating his accounts a few months back.
However, in the past 6 months, The ‘Mafia’ kickboxer has seen unprecedented growth on the internet, even becoming the most searched man at one point. This has led many fans to wonder about the reason behind Tate’s meteoric rise in fame.
The interesting thing about Top G was that he was already rich before he became famous on social media. He earned most of his income via his webcam business, which gained steam in 2016 after he retired from kickboxing.
Moreover, social media provided the tools for Tate to reach people from all walks of life and flaunt his lifestyle. This naturally fascinated many, and his personality became the cherry on top, turning the ‘Mafia Boxer’ into a star.
However, he finally put a value on his net worth by stating that his assets are worth USD 300 – 350 million.
