Jay-Z

Rapper/Entrepreneur “I’m not a businessman,” Jay-Z once rapped. “I’m a business, man.” True to his word, the Brooklyn-born MC is not only one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time, but he has parlayed musical success into profitable business ventures in music, fashion, and sports. Since his 1996 debut Reasonable Doubt, Jay-Z has collected 10 Grammy Awards and launched the career of Kanye West, Rihanna, and Willow Smith—among others. The husband of R&B superstar Beyoncé Knowles recently added author to his resume with the release of his bestselling memoir, Decoded. Watched the Throne—his latest album with Ye—reached platinum status and produced hits like “Otis.” On January 7, 2012 the entrepreneur/CEO and Beyoncé welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, into the world. Jay’s musical tribute to his daughter included a clip of Blue’s cries, making her the youngest person to earn a spot on a Billboard chart at two days old. In 2013, he entered the sports agent business with the opening of Roc Nation Sports and released his 12th studio album, Magna Carter Holy Grail.
