Full Story

As of late March 2023, Jay-Z’s net worth has reached a staggering $2.5 billion, according to Forbes. The musician has an array of assets ranging from a fine art collection to entertainment company Roc Nation. He mints millions from his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac, even in a year without a tour or album release.

In 2019, Jay-Z became the first hip-hop artist to ever become a billionaire. He made his billions through investments in companies like Uber and Marcy Venture Partners. Jay-Z’s Marcy Venture Partners raised $85 million in 2019. Forbes stated that to calculate his net worth, they looked at his stakes in companies like Armand de Brignac champagne, subtracting a healthy amount to account for his superstar lifestyle.

Over the past few years, Jay-Z has been building his wealth through highly profitable sales. He sold Tidal to Jack Dorsey’s digital payment platform in 2021 and made $750 million with the sale of his cognac line, D’Usse, in February 2023. Jay-Z’s music catalog alone is apparently worth $75 million, and that’s just a fraction of his wealth.

Together with his wife, Beyoncé, one of the richest self-made women with a net worth of $450 million, Jay-Z and Beyonce make an unbeatable power couple. With their combined wealth and influence, there’s no doubt they could truly run the world.
