How did Larry Hernandez make his money?
Larry Hernandez started his music career at an early age. After graduating from a music school, he joined a local group of musicians called Los Amables del Norte as a drummer. However, it was his solo career that is responsible for most of his fame and money. He recorded his first solo album in 1999 but it was with his most famous album, “16 NarcoCorridos” — which he recorded in a single day — that hurled him into the mainstream Latino music industry and got him signed up by major record labels. YouTube has also been a key source of fame and riches for the singer. Hernandez produced four seasons of a reality show based on his life and he also earns through lucrative investments and various ventures like restaurants, beauty products, and a vodka brand. However, it seemed as if Hernandez’s sparkling career was winding down when he managed to bag the #1 spot on “People with Money” as the highest paid singer of the year. He managed to make almost $96 million from fall 2014 to fall 2015!
