Elgin was born on the 30th of January 1991. He is the son of Elgin Baylor Lumpkin Senior, better known as Ginuwine, a dancer, actor, singer, and songwriter. He specializes in the R&B genre. Elgin Jr. has six siblings. Most of them are probably half-siblings as his father has seven biological children from several different women, we don’t know the exact number of women, and we don’t know most of their names. We do not know the name of Elgin Lumpkin Jr.’s mother either. His fraternal grandparents are both deceased. Unfortunately, his grandfather committed suicide, and his grandmother died of cancer.
Elgin Lumpkin Jr.’s Net Worth
There isn’t information about Elgin Jr.’s net worth, and there is conflicting information regarding his father’s net worth.
Elgin Baylor Lumpkin Senior was born on the 15th of October in 1970 and is currently 51 years old. He was born in Washington in the United States of America. His parents were James the second Lumpkin and Sandra Lumpkin. He was named after an N.B.A. player and legend.
He went to and graduated from what is now known as Forestville Military Academy. When he graduated, it was known as Forestville High School. He also graduated from Community College in Largo, Maryland. He graduated with a paralegal associate’s degree from Prince George’s Community College.
Ginuwine’s career started in the early 1990s when he became a member of Swing Mob. What is Swing Mob, you may ask? It is a music compound and record label that was founded by a member of the popular R&B group Jodeci. This founder’s name was Donald ‘DeVante Swing” DeGrate. Swing Mob was based in New York in a city called Rochester.
During his time as a part of Swing Mob, Ginuwine met people like Stephen ‘Static Major’ Garret, who is a singer and songwriter, and he also met Melissa ‘Missy’ Elliot, a rapper. He also met the producer known as Timbaland. During the 1990s, even after Swing Mob closed down, the names mentioned above became the people with whom Ginuwine worked closely and did most of his collaborations.
The ‘team’ worked together on multiple projects, some of which was Ginuwine’s albums, like his debut album released in 1996.
In 2007 Ginuwine formed part of the group T.G.T. with two other performers known as Tank and Tyrese. The R&B trio 2012 got signed to Atlantic Records. The album they released in 2013, Three Kings, received a Grammy nomination.
Ginuwine has also had roles in multiple television shows such as Moesha and Half and Half.
He lost his parents, Elgin Jr.’s fraternal grandparents, within less than a year of each other. Ginuwine found himself somewhat depressed after this had happened and sought wise counsel from his pastor, and he found a way to deal with his grief. He recorded the song “Two Reasons I Cry” about his parents’ deaths and added the piece to his 2001 album The Life.
Ginuwine’s net worth is anything above 5 million U.S. dollars; seeing as he has sold more than 10 million copies of albums, the assumption that his net worth is far more than 5 million U.S.D. can be considered accurate.
