  • After graduating from Benson Polytechnic High School, Amine went to Portland State University, where he pursued a degree in marketing.

  • After breaking through into the mainstream, Amine moved to Los Angeles, California. 
  • Amine currently has a net worth of roughly $2 million.
  • The rapper has used his platform to critique former US President Donald Trump. The child of immigrants, Amine has taken issue with Trump’s immigration policies, along with the ways he has used his platform.
  • Amine has already directed one of his own music videos, but he’s said that he aspires to do more with filmmaking in the future. He’s cited Quentin Tarantino as his favorite director and even mentioned the legendary filmmaker in the song “Caroline.”
  • He is 5 feet 11 inches tall.
  • Amine has been nominated for several awards, including a BET for Best New Hip-Hop Artist and a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. The latter was for “My High,” a collaboration between the rapper, Disclosure, and Slowthai.
