Kool Moe Dee Net Worth $500 Thousand Dollars

Kool Moe Dee Net Worth: Kool Moe Dee is an American hip-hop MC that has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Mohandas Dewese (aka Kool Moe Dee) was born August 8, 1962 in New York, New York. A notable hip-hop MC throughout the late ’70s and into the early ’90s, he was clearly one of the first rappers to earn a Grammy Award and was the first rapper ever to perform in the Grammys. In the late ’70s, Kool Moe Dee met Special K, DJ Easy Lee and LA Sunshine who together formed the old school hip-hop group the Treacherous Three on Enjoy Records. In 1985, the Treacherous Three disbanded and Kool Moe Dee attended the State University of New York at Old Westbury, where he earned a degree in communications. In 1986, he formally went solo, releasing a self-titled record which ranked 83 on Billboard and continuing on to release several other solo albums. Kool Moe Dee had a long-running competition with fellow New York rapper LL Cool J. Along with other rappers such as MC Shan, Kool Moe Dee asserted that LL stole his rap style. Kool Moe Dee went to appear on Will Smith’s #1 pop success Wild Wild West and on the remix of Nas’ Where are They Now with fellow old school rap artists. In 2003, he authored a book called There Is a God on the Mic, which breaks down his 50 favorite MCs. In 2008, he began hosting SpitFire with Kool Mo Dee, an internet hip-hop talk show which holds discussions relating to both hip-hop culture and general issues. He also made a brief cameo in the movie Wild Style and appeared in the film Beat Street with all the Treacherous Three and Doug E. Fresh. He’s appeared in a total of 17 films and TV shows as an actor and 21 as himself to date. Kool Moe Dee also impersonated a bartender in the Britney Spears feature film Crossroads and appeared on the TV show My Wife and Kids.
