The net worth of United States rapper, Jay is officially in the 3-comma club, making him the first rapper to join the billionaire club, according to a new Forbes report that totalled all of his income from multiple business ventures and subtracted “a healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle.”
When it’s all said and done, here’s a breakdown of the value of the empire he’s created:
– $310 million for Armand de Brignac champagne
– $220 mil in cash and investments, including a $70 million stake in Uber
– $100 mil for D’Usse cognac
– $100 mil for Tidal
– $75 mil for Roc Nation
– $75 mil for his music catalogue
– $70 mil art collection
– $50 mil in real estate
Add it up and that’s a cool billion.
Needless to say, this doesn’t include the net worth of his other half, Beyonce. The couple has been worth more than a billion combined for quite some time now.
Of course, Jay’s claim as the first hip-hop billionaire could be contested by one Dr Dre, who said he’d accomplished the feat way back in 2014 after his $3.2 billion deal with Apple.
Forbes said Dre jumped the gun though and was only worth $800 million at the time.
