“I’m not a businessman; I’m a business, man” – Jay-Z officially named Hip-Hop’s first Billionaire

Since his arrival in the Rap scene back in 1986, Jay-Z has been a figure in the East Coast Rap Game for over 3 decades. From his time with Jaz-O to when he would found Roc-A-Fella Records with Damon Dash, Jay has always had a money making mindset and single handedly changed how Hip-Hop and business coincide. Today Forbes has announced that Jay is now Hip-Hop’s first billionaire, which many are shocked by since the title was thought to be held by Dr. Dre after he sold Beats to Apple for $3.2 billion back in 2014 but after taxes it came out to $700 million. But to help inform you on what Jay-Z exactly has invested into. Tidal is the biggest one, being that Jay makes a good lump sum. His net worth is also high from his art collection and real estate. He also owns a stake worth $70 million in uber along with selling Rocawear back in 2007 to Iconix for $204 million. Dr. Dre and P. Diddy are currently tied for second richest Hip-Hop artist as we speak.
