Breaking out first as a rapper and rising to be one of the greats in the genre, and indeed all music, Jay-Z overcame the poverty of his Brooklyn upbringing to become one of the world’s richest entertainers. Now, with wife Beyonce, he continues to grow his business empire by diversifying and entering new industries.
What Is Jay-Z’s Net Worth?
Jay-Z has a net worth of $1 billion, which he’s been able to build through his music, entertainment labels and the popular music streaming service, Tidal. He founded his own record label, Roc-A-Fella Records, in 1995. Just 12 years later, he sold his Rocawear, a clothing retailer he founded, for $204 million. His luxury alcohol brand, Armand de Brignac champagne, also features heavily into his massive fortune. That’s considering his art collection as well, which is valued at $70 million.
How Does Jay-Z Earn His Money?
In addition to his Rocawear exit up top, Jay-Z has had other huge paydays that have fattened his bank account. His music, though having taken a backseat to his other ventures, still netted him an eye-watering amount in 2017, when his album, 4:44, sold a million copies in five days and got him $13 million in that period. His cologne, Gold, also got him $35 million within it’s first year of trading.
Jay-Z’s House & Real Estate Details
After being outbid on other houses they were eyeing, Jay Z and Beyonce spotted and bought a mansion measuring 30,000 square feet in Bel Air for $88 million.
The home has infinity pool overlooking the entirety of Los Angeles, a huge living room with a 54-foot retractable glass wall and a luxury home theater with an expensive lizard-skin-covered door. Before that, the couple were staying in a mansion in the Hampton’s worth $49 million.
Inside Jay-Z’s Multi Car Garage
Jay-Z has over 20 cars in his garage, and they form what is among the most curated collections in the world. A lover of classics, he has legends like the Alfa Romeo Spyder and the Jeep Wrangler, along with supercars like the Pagani Zonda F and the Bugatti Veryon Grand Sport.
There are some more modern and future-facing entries, like the Tesla Model S and Maybach Exelero.
Vacations Jay-Z Style!
Jay-Z and Beyonce have taken vacations to some of the world’s most exclusive locations in Europe, and they made the trip even more elegant by traveling on a yacht. The couple was also pictured traveling through Italy in style in a Chevrolet Corvette.
Jay-Z and Beyonce love the beach, too, and that’s seen by their numerous vacations to the Dominican Republic. They’re no strangers to some of the more ordinary tourist activities either, like riding a motorcycle in Thailand.
