Mr. Carter has come a long way from Marcy Projects! Forbes has named Jay-Z the first billionaire rapper based on his assets in music, real estate, and art. Aside from his music career which is valued at $75 million, he also is securing several bags from his streaming site, Tidal which is valued at $100 million. His liquor brand D’usse is also valued at $100 million. However, his biggest profit came from selling his well known clothing brand Roc-A-Wear for $240 million in 2007.
