Plies Net Worth – The Twist Of Sports And Music
Music Life Of Plies
After the start of their independent record label, “Big Gates”, in the late 1990’s it were several years before Piles got his big break with Slip-n-Slide Records “The Real Testament” was released in 2007 and was Piles’ debut album which was well received by the music community at large having sold 96,000 copies in its release week and scaling the Billboard 200 to the second place. Piles other albums include, “Definition of Real” (2008), “Da REAList” (2008), “Goon Affiliated” (2010), and “Purple Heart” (2015) as well as several singles. Featured throughout this rappers rising career are other notable talents like, T Pain, Akon, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx, Lil Boosie, Maejor, Ludacris, and many more. Although his work remains firmly in the love and thug life genres his music has a demand that he acquiesces to.
Business Career Of Plies
Dropping out of college and starting your own independent record label does not work for a lot of people, but it sure worked out well for Algernod Washington. While his music has been controversial his career has lasted longer than many had projected. Starting out with a few singles like “Tell Dem Krackers Dat” and “Shawty” he got his start with Slip-n-Slide Records and produced his first album which has now gone gold and contributes a hefty sum towards his current financial endowments. With three other albums and a fifth coming this year he has shown more of a penchant for getting into trouble with the people he works with and the places he has worked than creating his music.
How Was Plies’ Childhood?
Algernod or Plies if you prefer was born in Fort Myers, Florida and grew up in the same area. In high school and college he showed not just an enthusiasm for football, but also a talent for it. Arguably more talent than was displayed in his music career. First attending school at Miami University, Ohio, for two years he transferred to the University of Central Florida where he dropped out of a short time later. Although in his youth he was the Homecoming King, and looked up to as an athlete of skill, later on throughout his career he has advocated the thug-life and betrayed his roots.
Plies, His Romantic Life And His Long Time Relationship With Brandy Lyons, And Family
Plies and his girlfriend of near 13 years, Brandy Lyons, have one child together. Brandy Lyons, not to be confused with the adult entertainment actress who spells her first name Brandi, and her famous on and off again boyfriend Piles have an 11 year old son together, Nijier Lanier Washington. Lyons, who is almost infamous for her desire for privacy, is not currently together with the father of her only son, but with their dating history their makeup is almost certainly imminent. Aside from his son the only family noted is his step brother Ronnell Lawrence Lavatte who is also a rapper and who helped Piles with his start in the industry.
One of Plies’ cars is his Pontiac grand prix with its $47,000 paint job and DUB Azzmackas wheels also finished in chrome. All in all it’s a little too much for the eyes. In his figurative garage is also a Maserati Quattroporte that also has a customized paint job, but this one in much better taste.
