Jay-Z Is Richest Rapper, According To The Newest Forbes List

Jay-Z is the richest rapper right now.

According to their latest Forbes List, the hip-hop mogul is at the top of the heap.

How rich is this rapper?

$2.5 Billion rich!

But he’s much more than a rapper, he’s a business, man.

In fact, most of his loot is acquired far beyond the music industry.

53-year-old Shawn Corey Carter is all of these things (and more) –

  • Rapper
  • songwriter
  • record producer
  • entrepreneur
  • record executive
  • media proprietor
  • art collector
  • author

Jay earned the title of hip-hop’s first billionaire back in 2019.

This Is How Forbe’s List Broke Down His Assets When He First Hit The Billion Dollar Mark

  • Armand de Brignac champagne: $310 million
  • Cash & investments, including a stake in Uber worth an estimated $70 million: $220 million
  • D’Ussé cognac: $100 million
  • Tidal streaming service: $100 million
  • Roc Nation: $75 million
  • Music catalog: $75 million
  • Art collection: $70 million
  • Real estate: $50 million

However, since that crowning, he’s only added to his many piles of cash.

From his humble beginnings to his net worth soaring to self-made billions, he just keeps on moving forward.

Among his many cashed checks, his sprawling and diversified empire includes –

  • millions come from his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac
  • Rock Nation Entertainment
  • sports empire
  • fine art collection (including works by Jean-Michel Basquiat)

The brother didn’t even release any new music since 2018’s “Everything is Love” with his wife, Beyonce (as The Carters).

But he did grace us with his presence during the Grammy’s with a rousing performance with DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, John Legend, and Fridayy.

Jay emerged from a legal battle with Barcardi over his D’usse Cognac brand.

The outcome of that months-long ordeal had the beverage giant acquiring a majority stake reportedly worth about $750 million.

Jay-Z retains a ‘significant ownership stake’.

So next on the horizon for the hip-hop mogul?

Sources say Jay is eyeing purchasing a stake in an NFL team.

That bottom line on his bank statement just keeps getting greener.
