Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z, is one of the wealthiest musicians in the world.
It is no longer just a business card for a rapper. Jay-Z has become one of the richest rappers in history not only thanks to rap but also thanks to his investment and his business activities. After selling more than 100 million records, he became one of the best-selling musicians of all time and won 21 Grammy Awards for his work. It is estimated that by 2020, Jay-Z's net assets will be an incredible $ 1 billion, making it the richest rapper of all time and the first billionaire in the hip hop industry.
Jay-Z didn't let music be ubiquitous in his career. He diversified and began investing in nightclubs, restaurants, his own clothing line and record companies. Since 2020, Jay-Z's net worth is $ 1 billion and Beyonce's net worth is $ 500 million, giving the pair a combined net worth of $ 1.5 billion.
