Podcast Guest Tells Mike Tyson His First Encounter With $8,000,000 Worth Rapper


Mike Tyson was well-known in the boxing community, and since retiring, he has turned his attention to a number of other areas. He has launched a number of additional enterprises and even entered the cannabis market by selling a variety of goods.

Additionally, he has been quite regular with his podcasts and has welcomed many well-known figures as guests. After filing for bankruptcy once, he apparently managed to recover financially and is now said to have a net worth of $10 million. Ne-Yo is a person similar to Tyson who has dabbled in a variety of industries. He is a musician, actor, and vocalist, to name a few of his talents.

It was a fantastic episode where Tyson and Ne-Yo discussed a wide range of subjects. Ne-Yo also talked about a unique encounter he had with Trippie Redd.

Ne-Yo shares the story about the time he met with Trippie Redd
The actor-singer shared an interesting encounter with Trippie Redd during an episode of Mike Tyson’s podcast. According to Ne-Yo, they met at a Record Plant in LA when they were both leaving their respective rooms. Trippie Redd who reportedly has a net worth of $8 million, approached Ne-Yo and expressed his admiration for his music.

Ne-Yo was surprised since Trippie Redd’s appearance with his tattoos and spikes did not seem like a typical fan of his music. However, Trippie Redd explained that he used to play a video game where he would drive around and listen to Ne-Yo’s songs on the radio while killing people in the game.


Ne-Yo found it amusing and took it as a compliment. He said, “You used to murder people to my music, cool that’s a compliment bro, thanks for that yeah.” This encounter led to their collaboration on the song Push Up, which became a hit.


Ne-Yo’s story highlights the impact music can have on people, even in unexpected ways. It also shows that music can bring people from different backgrounds and styles together to create something great. The guest also revealed his newly found career interest besides music in the same episode.

Did Ne-Yo write songs for Rihanna and Beyonce?

Ne-Yo has worked with several artists throughout his character and is a huge name in the music industry. Earlier in the podcast, Ne-Yo shared that he has previously written for artists such as Rihanna and Beyonce. Neyo shared that he was born in a “musical household”, and that his mother, aunt, and sister all used to sing so that definitely had a lot of influence on his career.

But he only started to take it seriously when he was around 19-20 years old, and it was then that he started writing for other people. He also shared how it was when he caught the attention of his current manager who reportedly has been with him for more than 20 years.

He started to put out albums one after another and didn’t stop as according to him, he felt like, “Oh my god, the world likes me, Imma keep going”.
