I actually thought Dr Dre had done it with his Beats headphones and other businesses, however Jay-Z has just pipped him onto the Forbes list.

Love this guy's hustle, I never really rated him as an artist, though I do like a couple of his tunes (Empire State Of Mind and Onto The Next One), and he's just proved that he is the number 1 hip-hop hustler.

Well done Jay-Z :)

He's an accomplished artist but if you look at his wikipedia page he also has a list of businesses that he's started or has been a part of. It was really only a matter of time before becoming a billionaire especially since he hangs around Warren Buffett all the time.

Just goes to show, you can look like a horse and marry Beyonce, everyone's got a price!
Looks is only part of the equation(way too many variables) to getting a woman...

When it comes to women they look at the whole picture

Unscripted himself out of Compton. I lived out there at the time, 50+ kids getting killed every week. Enough FTE's to fill a stadium. So glad a couple NWA made it to the Fastlane

From Parental Discretion Iz Advised
[Verse 2: Dr. Dre]
Aiyyo, let's take it to the street (WORD UP!)
Let 'em understand perfection
Let knowledge be the tool for suckers to stop guessing
Cause I don't give a f*ck about radio play
Observe the English I display
Lyrics for the adults, children have been barred
And scarred from listening to something so motherf*cking HARD
Dope, pumping that's so my sh*t will never falter
Yo it's Dre so f*ck the "Mind of Minolta"
Psycho like no other mother*ucker
So step to me wrong, G-O for what you N-O
But be warned, never will I leave like a regular
Cause I'm a little better than the regular competitor
I use to see 'em on stage
Earning money like a thief, but without a gauge
Until I got full, of clocking the lame getting pull
(They said you wasn't gon' get paid)
Nah that's bullsh*t! They like it stylistic
And I enchant the crowd like I'm a mystic
(C-C-C-C) C-C-C-cameras are flashing when I'm in action
A photo, or fresh with a flair for fashion
Pure simplicity -- see, it's elementary
You hear one of the hardest motherf*ckers this century
Try to comprise a word to the wise and the guys
Parental discretion is advised

You're thinking of Dre. Jay-Z is a Brooklyn man.

Wow, no mention of 401(k)s, indexed-funds, and saving three bucks by not drinking Starbucks.

Surely these are the most important factors behind his billionaire empire and not entrepreneurship, scaleable mathematics, etc, ... :clench:

I'm sure it was all down to compound interest :rofl:
