Known as one of the most prolific rappers in the business, Jay-Z’s net worth is estimated to be worth over a billion dollars. He and his wife, Beyonce, have been married for nearly a decade. They have been making music together for years. During that time, they have sold more than a hundred million records. In addition, they have racked up numerous awards for their contributions to pop and R&B music.
The rapper has a diverse portfolio of investments and assets. He owns a portion of his own music, and he has an impressive collection of art. He also has investments in several Black-owned businesses, including a cannabis speakeasy in Los Angeles. The rapper is also a co-owner of a clothing line. He also owns a stake in a sports management firm, Roc Nation.
Jay-Z has a massive real estate portfolio, including a 30,000-square-foot mansion in Bel Air, CA. The house features a full basketball court, a 15-car garage, and two-acres of land.

Currently, Jay-Z’s net worth is around $1.4 billion, and his company, Tidal, is worth at least $450 million. Tidal is a music streaming service owned by Jay-Z, and has a catalog of songs from Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and independent distributors.

Jay-Z bought Tidal in 2015 for $56 million. He then sold 80% of it to Square for $350 million. He is now a Square board member.
The deal was not only a win-win for the two companies, but it also made Jay-Z one of the richest men in hip-hop. In July of 2020, Jay-Z invested in Oatly, a rumored IPO (Initial Public Offering) that is expected to go public in 2021.

Jay-Z’s deal making may have taken a few steps back in the past few years, but he’s never stopped making deals. In fact, he’s made a net profit of $294 million from Tidal in just six years. The company will soon be selling out to a company owned by his friend and business partner Jack Dorsey, Square Inc.
