Well, we just recently published the Forbes list featuring the richest rappers. There were two things interesting about the list, first, Drake’s new fortune and secondly the declining gap in between Jay-Z and Diddy. As with a difference of just $ 10 million, Diddy still topped the list and maintained his position as the richest hip-hop artist in the world. According to Forbes, Jay-Z’s net worth was $ 810 million while Diddy had a net worth of $ 820 million.
When previously the race for the ten digits net worth was still on, now it seems that soon we might have our winner. As according to recent reports, Jay-Z finalized one more deal apart from his previous Tidal deal with Sprint. This time it was a $ 200 million 360-deal with Live Nation.
Earlier the rapper had a $ 150 million 10 year deal with Live Nation, which included the promotion and management of his world tours. Now with this new deal, Jay-Z might even announce his World Tour soon. After all, he is one of the most influential rappers in the industry with a massive fan following.
According to sources, Jay-Z is now the richest hip hop artist with a net worth of $ 900 million. He is further backed by his beautiful wife Beyonce, who herself has a staggering fortune. Together their family wealth exceeds $1.3 billion.
Jay Z began his career back in 1986. Since then he has not just limited himself to music but has also branched out to different businesses as well.
