Shawn Carter, as he is legally known, has been in the news quite a bit over the last several years. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t all about his music, his business or his money. Usually, when you hear about Jay-Z, it is because his voluptuous wife, Beyoncé has done something notable, and he was nearby.
However, behind his wife’s superstardom, the successful rapper has been extremely successful in his own right. In addition to his music, Jay-Z has found success with his record label, “Roc Nation, and his clothing line, “Rocawear.” In addition to his own solo businesses, he also started a partnership with Live Nation that has proven to be extremely lucrative.
In 2007, Jay-Z sold the Rocawear clothing line for $204 Million. His partnership with Live Nation has brought him another $150 Million. His net worth is around $520 Million, and that doesn’t count anything his unbelievably talented wife is bringing in. It’s safe to say that their Christmas stockings will be full each year.
