A first-generation millionaire, Foxx earned a name for himself for his acting and made a fortune from music albums, and investments. Some of his prominent movies like "Ray," "Valentine's Day," 'Miami Vice," and "Spider-Man: No Way Home" earned him $5 million, $7 million, $4 million and $12 million respectively.

Foxx also made around $20 million in royalty as a music producer in the music industry. The entertainer also earned a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 2008 for his single "Blame It."

Born in Texas as Eric Marlon Bishop in 1967, Foxx was raised by his mother's adoptive parents Louise Annette Talley and Derrel Bishop. Foxx's parents were not from the elite class, and his father Derrel Bishop, who later changed his name to Shahid Abdula, worked as a stockbroker.

Foxx was always inclined towards music and entertainment, although he had some strict early years. During his teenage years, Foxx was in charge of Terrell's New Hope Baptist Church choir and used to play the piano as a part-time entertainer. However, he had a knack for comedy, which became evident in the third grade when Foxx's teacher used to ask him to tell jokes to reward the class for good behavior.

In 1989, Foxx took the stage for the first time at a comedy club's open mic as a dare from his girlfriend. From there, he delved into standup comedy and eventually starred in the 1991 sitcom "In Living Color." After the comedy-drama sitcom "Roc," Foxx went on to star in his own sitcom, The Jamie Foxx Show, from 1996 to 2001. Later in his career, Foxx made his way into the music industry, garnering major attention with chartbuster songs like "Slow Jamz" and "Gold Digger."

After exploring the music industry and earning an Academy Award for Ray in 2004, Foxx went on to star in major Hollywood projects like "Miami Vice," "Django Unchained," "The Amazing Spider-Man" series, "Baby Driver," and "Spider-Man: No Way Home," all of which did well at the box office.
