Jay-Z is one of those people who really has it all, more than any rapper in the world, as a matter of fact. Forbes launched its annual list of the highest-paid hip-hop acts in the world, and Beyoncé's hubby secured the best stop after earning $ 76.5 million over the past 12 months.
Jay-Z's victory was not a surprise to anyone who is closely following his career. This hits creator had a busy year and spent most of his time on the road.
Fans could not wait to hear their thirteenth studio album 4:44 especially after learning of their response to Beyoncé's Lemonade . About a year later, the couple dropped their joint album Everything is Love and the fans could not get enough.  His tour of the stadium On The Run II was a great success party, and the lateral efforts of Jay-Z brought a lot of money, too. He is the founder of the entertainment company Roc Nation and owner of the Tidal music transmission service.
