Jay-Z is a Billionaire!

For the first time in history, a hip-hop artist has reached $1 billion in worth.  Yes, Jay-Z is now the first hip-hop billionaire due to his partnership with liquor brands ($410 million), Tidal ($100 million) and Roc Nation ($75 million.  Then there’s his $220 million in cash and investments.

I know a lot of you, like me, thought Dr. Dre already hit the billion dollar mark when he sold Beats By Dre to Apple for $3 billion but Forbes claims that his net worth is at $850 million.

Jay-Z and Timberlake for Super Bowl Sunday!

There is a small rumor that Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake wil be performing during the 2018 Super Bowl half time in February.  Don’t get your panties in a wad just yet.  It’s only a small rumor but I think it would be a great show.  As long as we don’t have to see that horrible old man show that is..The Who.

I tried not to pay attention to this but you heard about Jay-Z dissing MC Hammer on the Kanye track “So Appalled”. Jay-Z’s verse was

Hammer was pissed so he started talking on his Twitter then put out this song “Better Run Run” with a look a like Jay-Z. Check it out.
