Forbes has updated Jay-Z’s net worth. The Brooklyn rapper is still a billionaire, raking in a network of $2.5B as he continues to make moves outside of music.
The “Song Cry ” rapper’s net worth was updated to $2.5B by Forbes, including his businesses outside of music such as his drinking companies D’Usse and Armand de Brignac champagne.
The financial increase comes from his work with his Roc Nation company and Marcy Venture Partners who raised $85M in 2019.
Jay-Z’s billionaire status was confirmed in 2019, making him the first-ever billionaire in hip-hop. His former labelmate Kanye West’s billionaire status was dropped in 2022 shortly after becoming one in the year 2020.
Soon after Forbes dropped Ye from billionaire net worth status, they replaced him with Bad Boy Entertainment’s boss Diddy, who got into a social media feud with Kanye West at the time in 2022.
This comes years after Diddy failed to reach the billionaire status he was reportedly en route to reaching in 2011.
