Jay Z is still a business, mannnn…according to Forbes, the Roc Nation rapper is now worth $2.5 billion following the sale of his liquor brand.
Friday’s updated rankings make Hov the 1,203rd richest person in the world.
In February, Jay sold his 50% stake in his D’USSÉ cognac to his parent company Bacardi for $750 million after a tense legal battle …and still retains a significant portion of the brand.
Bernard ArnaultLVMH CEO Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, is still the richest person in the world with a net worth of $216.1 billion…but the bragging rights of the highest-paid rapper currently sit with Jigga.
Not only that, Billboard recently named him “The Greatest Rapper Ever,” and he holds the most Grammys for a rapper at 24.
lil wayne recently challenged Jay’s title with an open eye – and got support of a respected personality Angie Martinez – but given Hov’s No. 1 stack, this could be a hotly debated debate.
