Early Life and Career Information
On September 12, 1994, Druski was born in Baltimore, Maryland, to Cheryl Desbordes, a state department worker, and Captain David McLain Desbordes, a commercial pilot who served in the U.S. Air Force and the National Guard.
Druski grew up in Gwinnett County, Georgia, and attended Shiloh High School before moving on to Georgia Gwinnett College. He then transferred to Georgia Southern University before dropping out of college eventually.
Druski originally wanted to pursue a career in sports as a sportscaster but later turned to comedy. In late 2017, Druski began posting comedic skits on his Instagram page, which earned him a large following, leading him to his debut feature in Lil Yachty’s song “Oprah’s Bank Account.” He was featured again five months later in Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” music video.
Druski took his content further and started publishing on YouTube in 2019, earning a larger following and a feature in Jack Harlow’s song “Tyler Herro” in 2020. He also actively participated in the “Black Lives Matter” protest in 2020.
In 2019, Druski created the satirical label “Coulda Been Records” for artists to come onto his Instagram Live and enjoy their time. So far, he has hosted NBA YoungBoy, Chloe Bailey, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Snoop Dogg, AB, the real Soulja boy, Drake, Ella Mai, and Jake Paul on the show.
Two years later, Adidas and Revolt announced a new TV series called Sneakin’ In With Druski, with Druski as the host. Since its launch, the series has featured Teyana Taylor, Snoop Dogg, and Yung Miami.
In February 2022, Druski partnered with Ruffles and Mountain Dew to host the NBA All-Star Weekend. Two months later, Druski posted a now-deleted skit with the caption, “That friend that tries to make the girls excessively drink.” In the skit, he invited two women into his house and tried intoxicating them.
The skit garnered much backlash against him, with some saying that the skit glorified the sexual assault of intoxicated women.
Three months later, his label “Coulda Been Records” partnered with Bravest Studios for a Druski capsule consisting of two shirts, a trucker hat, and two pairs of mesh shorts in multiple colorways.
In March 2022, a Twitter user reportedly tweeted that Druski and rapper Vince Staples would appear in a Friday sequel on HBO Max. The rumor later turned out to be fake as it was neither unconfirmed by Druski nor HBO Max and was not seen in any HBO series after that.
He appeared in Jack Harlow and Drake’s “Churchill Downs” and Chloe and Latto’s “For the Night” music videos in 2022.
Druski’s Net Worth
In addition to modeling for popular brands and collaborating with several top-rated artists, Druski has a large following on YouTube (224k subscribers), Instagram (5.1M), Twitter (1.1M), and TikTok (4.4M), from which he earns money by sponsoring and promoting ads.
All of these make up his modest net worth of $400,000.
