RMR net worth: RMR is a hip-hop artist with an estimated net worth of $1.5 million dollars. But who is the masked musician? I did some digging.
1. RMR (pronounced “rumor”) has done one helluva job concealing his identity. Nobody knows his real name, what he looks like, or where he’s from. I do know that he’s 22 years old, currently lives in LA, and his songs SLAP.
2. RMR always wears a mask in public. When asked what it means, he told NPR, “The mask is just a mirror. For society and whatnot. You wearing a mask right now, Mano. I don’t know who you are. You don’t know who I am. When we talking, when we get out in the public, we always put on masks until we go home. Some people actually keep their mask on when they at home.” It also forces his fans to listen to his music with their ears, and not with their eyes.
3. You’ll notice the word “IMPERFECTUS” on his mask, stitched in gold, above his left eye. It means “incomplete” in Latin. A reminder that he’s not perfect. Nobody is. And to always stay humble. Also, the mask is as functional as it is symbolic. If nobody can recognize him with the mask off, well, he can live a pretty normal life outside of music, can’t he?
4. RMR burst onto the music scene in February of 2020, when he dropped “Rascal,” a surprising take on Rascal Flatts’ “Bless The Broken Road.” The song went viral, racking up millions of views in a matter of days. And even though the YouTube video got yanked for copyright claims, record labels went nuts trying to find and sign the anonymous artist. Warner Records partnered with CMNTY RCRDS to get the job done.
5. RMR’s favorite musicians are Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Michael Jackson, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Buffett and, of course, Rascal Flatts. When Complex asked him how he’d developed such a dynamic voice, he replied: “Genetics, n*gga. I came out of the womb with that. The doctors say I couldn’t stop singing.”
6. Commenting on his style, RMR said: “You hear ‘Dealer’ and you hear ‘Rascal,’ [and] a lot of people say they can hear a little bit of a similarity with the banjo at the front. They still try to put it in that whole country-trap sound, but I feel it’s just my sound. If I hear a beat and I like it, I’m gonna go on it and do whatever I want with it. I might do a whole opera. I might throw in bass, baritone, alto—I might even do soprano, my falsetto all over it.”
7. Despite launching his music career in the middle of a worldwide pandemic—plus protesting and looting following the police killing of George Floyd—RMR has thrived. How? Clearly, he’s talented. Sure, the curiosity factor helps. Oh, and working with geniuses like Timbaland couldn’t hurt. But I think it’s RMR’s messaging, especially at a time like right now, that’s helping him connect with people on another level.
8. Throughout his lyrics, RMR says he’s: “Trying to communicate that change is not bad. Growth is not bad. Expand your consciousness. Go ahead and see what else is out there. The world’s huge. It’s not your 15-block radius. It’s not just your high school friends. It’s not just your hood. There’s way more cultures. We’re a giant mixing pot. We don’t know the meaning of life. So go ahead and meet as many people as you can, and be good to as many people as you can. Try to look at everything through other people’s lenses. Try to see from different perspectives, because the world’s huge. It’s all about growth.”
9. Will RMR ever take off the mask? Doesn’t sound like it. “Because it’s about the music. It’s about the growth. It’s not about me. It’s about raising your consciousness. That’s the message. It’s not about me. The other guy got another life. Sh*t, that n*gga might be an accountant. Who knows?”
10. Bottom line, “I’m here to just expand the mind of everybody and the consciousness. I’m just here to help people grow. That’s it. That’s all I want. I’m here to help erase stereotypes. That’s what I’m here for,” he explained.
