How Rich Is Mike D Of Beastie Boys?

Michael “Mike D” Diamond was born in New York, U.S. on November 25, 1965 and has an estimated net worth of $75 million. Michael went to school in Vassar College before dropping out in pursuit of a music career. This bore fruits as he became one of the most successful American musician, songwriter as well as rapper.

As a co-founding member of The Young Aborigines band back in 1979 (the group later became the Beastie Boys and began to transition towards the hip hop industry) alongside Adam Yauch, John Berry and Kate Schellenbach, Michael Diamond and his group released their first album called Licensed to III in 1986. This was closely followed by other albums like Paul’s Boutique, III Communication, Check Your Head, Hello Nasty, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, The Mix Up and To the 5 Boroughs. Michael and his Beastie Boys band sold more than 40 million copies of their albums across the globe with seven of them hitting platinum status.

In 2012, Michael Diamond and his band became only the 3rd rap group in history to receive the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. In addition, this band has received an array of nominations in the Grammy Awards and has won three of them, including 2008’s Best Pop Instrumental Album for “The Mix Up”.

Outside of his celebrity life, Michael Diamond is a married family man with two children (Skyler and Davis Diamond) from a more than 20 years marriage with film, TV and music video director Tamra Davis. Mike D is also an enthusiast of interior design.
