Coi Leray is a young american rap artist and vocalist that believes in doing her best.
Boston born, Brittany Collins a.k.a. Coi Leray spent her teens in New Jersey where her rapper dad, Benzoni, encouraged her from an early age to be independent and unique. Living with 5 brothers inspired her individuality, and by 17 she had left the family home and started a career in sales, something she was very good at. However, despite working at a job that was miles removed from music, it kept playing in her heart.
She released her first mixtape in 2018, and her music was distinctive in that it brought her listeners into a world that embodied her individuality and charisma. Coi Leray continues her tradition of originality with her EP, “Now or Never”, but she is also evolving into more than just a rapper. The artist she is becoming understands her craft is so much more than what is generally expected, and to leave a legacy you need to be extraordinary.
She hopes to expand her career into acting, the hair care industry, fashion and even car rims.
In 2019, a year after signing her first record deal with 1801 Records and Republic Records, she released EC2, her second mixtape, and her first extended play, “Now or Never” in 2020. After peaking in the top 40, “No More Parties” became Leray’s first Billboard Hot 100 entry and the song went platinum as certified by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Are you ready for Coi Leray’s net worth and to find out where she grew up?
Coi Leray’s Place of Birth and Early Life
Coi is a beautiful mix of Puerto Rican and Cape Verdean. She took her first breath on a windy and cold Spring morning in Boston, Massachusetts on May 11, 1997. The rapper was named Brittany Collins, but she later chose her new nom de plume.
As a child, she lived in Hackensack, New Jersey, with her two brothers, Kwame and Taj. Her father, Raymond Leon Scott a.k.a. Benzino, is a semi-famous rapper and producer. Today he is better known for his beef with Eminem that has been ongoing since 2003 when The Source was canceled. Following the cancellation of The Source, Leray’s father divorced her mother.
Coi has always been a fan of music, and grew up listening to Rihanna and Chris Brown, but she became more interested in rapping after hearing songs by Chief Keef and Rich the Kid. Her bedroom mirror was a great place for practicing her singing, rapping… and twerking. Her father inspired her to get into hip-hop and she released her first songs under the name Coi Leray (meaning Koi fish in Japanese), “Bow Down,” with her brother Taj, as well as “Rock Back” on her YouTube channel in 2011.
This was when Coi Leroy’s net worth started taking a more positive shape. Let’s check out how her career is going.
Coi Leray’s Career
We mentioned earlier that Collins loved dancing and singing in front of her mirror. The mirror later became an iPhone; and soon Coi Leray was being noticed… and trendily twerking her way to more than a million subscribers and some serious dollars being added to Coi Leray’s net worth.
Coi occasionally rapped freestyles and recorded some songs on the side, but didn’t fully commit to music until 2017, when she released G.A.N. (Goofy Ass N***az). Soundcloud went wild for the New Jersey native’s single and drew new attention to her. It was an attempt to apply pressure from a female point of view, and to continue from there.
Things really started blowing up for the growing female talent in 2018. Her first ‘real’ mixtape, “EveryThingCoz”, showcased her bespoke style with tracks like “Pac Girl” and “No Letting Up”. Coi’s efforts led to a recording contract with Republic Records as well as opportunities to open for big-name artists like Gucci Mane and Jay Critch. While her latest project EC2 continued the fiery pace the young artist is on, it also displayed a progressively mature sound, including more melodies and better production.
“Now or Never”, Coi’s next EP, marks a huge change for her. As the artist transitions from a girl who’s just having fun to a woman, we witness her growth and metamorphosis into a true artist. This is mirrored by her intense love for butterflies (she has them tattooed all over her body). She has calmed down and lowered the volume slightly. Leray said that going through stuff can do that to a person but it also helps her grow, which leads to more s(h*t)tuff!
As for “Everything CoZ” and EC2, I see it as Baby Coi looking for herself and not caring. Now she sees her new projects as opportunities to gain a greater understanding of the artistry of music. In “Now or Never,” listeners will be able to hear Coi’s talents. The vocalist displays skillful rapping, but she also incorporates a lot of singing and emotion, something we’ve never seen her do before.
As she sings her heart out to her special someone in “Slide,” Coi gets on her grown-up and sexy vibe. The pop star motivates herself, her family, and her team with conviction on “Do Better” while confronting a tumultuous lover on “Messy.” If she carries on improving we can expect Coi to become a true megastar in both rap and pop.
In addition to her music career, Coi has been breaking through in a variety of other areas as well. Her empire has grown to include acting, hair care products, a clothing line, brand campaigns, and even her very own line of rims. “Now or Never” has the potential to move her forward. She loves cooking and hosts her own YouTube culinary shows.
In the future, Coi aspires to be the most legendary and successful artist in the world. In today’s world the best way to stand out is to be different, and she is doing just that. My goal is to be bigger than Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj. As great as they are, I’m going to leave a huge impact.

The cancellation of The Source led to Leray’s father divorcing her mother.
