Jay-Z is also a co-founder of the streaming service, Tidal, D’Usse cognac, and Rocawear clothing company, the latter of which he founded in 1999. The streaming platform brings in $100 million and his cognac venture with Bacardi draws in the same amount. His ownership of the $300 gold bottle champagne Armand de Brignac adds an estimated $310 million to his net worth.
Other investments and cash, which Forbes said include Uber, is estimated at $200 million.
But the artist's first love is music. In 2004, when he became president of Def Jam, the label that gave him his start, he notably negotiated the return of his master recordings, which Forbes values at over $75 million. According to the business publication, he also got his publishing rights in a separate deal with EMI.
Since reportedly making Los Angeles their home base in 2017, Jay-Z and his musician wife, Beyonce, have an $88 million Bel Air mansion in addition to a $26 million East Hampton mansion. Separately, the rapper has a $6.85 million penthouse in New York's Tribeca neighborhood.
