His early experiences led him to numerous connections, which in turn would help kick start his business career. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Design Beginnings
Tyler was raised in Charlotte, and spent most of his life without a father as he left the family when he was two years old, so he was primarily raised by his mother and grew up as a very shy person. He realized his passion in clothing design when he attended high school ,as he was inspired by Odd Future – also known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) it’s a hip hop collective originally formed by Tyler, the Creator. It had various changes in its – over the years but has been inactive since 2015.
His first venture was to make merchandise for Odd Future, and he sold online on forums which was a successful endeavor. He earned $15,000 from that project alone, and his teachers would start to gain notice of his talent, and his teacher of graphic design encouraged him to pursue his own clothing line. He didn’t have much trouble during this period, and was friends with a lot of people in school.
Career Beginnings and ASAP
After matriculating from high school, Grosso worked at a grocery store while also taking online classes. During this time, he became strongly interested in another hip hop collective called the ASAP Mob, a collective of fashion designers, rappers, record producers, and music video directors who all share the same interests. Most of them carry the “ASAP” moniker in their name, and all of them have collaborated on projects including music releases.
He learned more about the founder of the group – Steven Rodriguez – also known as ASAP Yams, contacted him and connected through Twitter and Facebook. Afterwards, with only $200 in his pocket, he decided to move to New York City to begin working as Yams’ assistant, leading him to work closely with other members of the Mob, including ASAP Rocky who is known for his critically acclaimed releases such as “Live. Love. A$AP” and “At. Long. Last. A$AP”. His time with ASAP proved to be a fruitful endeavor, as he learned more about style and matching clothes to be able to pull-off almost anything.
Depature from ASAP and Superrradical
In 2015, members of ASAP Mob revealed that Yams had died from acute mixed drug intoxication. Shortly afterwards, Tyler decided that it was time to move on and announced his departure from the group to focus more on his passion for fashion, and soon created his own street wear brand called Superrradical. His designs are mainly inspired by pop culture from the 1970s up to the 2000s, taking inspiration from documentaries, movies and music from these eras. He has references to a lot of popular music acts in his designs, including Britney Spears, The Doors, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The endeavor has been successful for him, as he has reported a huge amount of sales. He even tried his hand at a mystery box sale in which he would pack boxes which could have any of his in-demand designs at random. He recorded over 3,000 sales of the boxes alone within the first few days of release. While he has gained positive attention for his designs, a lot of fashion enthusiasts don’t like his sense of style, opining that his designs don’t look good.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Grosso dated social media personality and independent music artist Too Poor, but their relationship was brief. He then started dating another Instagram personality named Grace Shields, though he has not shared a lot of details about their relationship, which leaves many to question if they are still together.
