RECORD JAY- Z BECOMES FIRST HIPHOP BILLIONAIRE

Jay–Z is now, according to a new Forbes magazine, the first rapper to amass a fortune in the ten-figure range.



Forbes said that the reason Jay-Z’s wealth went all up on the table due to his new business interest in alcohol.



His streaming service Tidal allegedly supplies about $100 million of his net worth, just behind his cognac D’Ussé.









Jay-Z, recently gave a special performance to celebrate the re-opening of the celebrated NYC venue Webster Hall.





“It’s clear that Jay-Z has accumulated a fortune that conservatively totals $1 billion, making him one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire—and the first hip-hop artiste to do so,” the magazine said.



Forbes breakdown indicated that the rapper’s chief source of wealth is his $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac champagne brand (at $310 million), but also boasts investments at well over $200 million (including a large stake in Uber).
