    I thought it was Dr. Dre because of those headphones.

    Forbes Magazine use to be credible, just saying.

    • Snazzy says:

      ya after the whole Kylie Jenner is self made thing, not sure I believe anything they report

  3. SURFCHICK says:

    I thought Dr. Dre was? Ice Cube? Russell Simmons? I think Forbes is wrong.

    The Real Genius post and comment thread at Pajiba is giving me life today.

  5. CES says:

    If him and Beyoncé won’t so greedy I would maybe feel happy for him.

    • Monicack says:

      Greedy? They give more back to the community than you’ll ever see reported on.

    • mercury says:

      yeah, there is nothing greedy about Jay Z

      • Stella Alpina says:

        Not 100% true, mercury.

        Did you forget his behavior during Occupy Wall Street and its nationwide protests against corporate greed and corruption?

        Jay Z’s Rocawear clothing label made t-shirts to “support” the movement. The shirts said “Occupy All Streets”. Yet, NONE of the profits from the sale of these shirts were used to help the movement and its protestors. Jay Z kept all of it.

        Yeah, a rich man exploited a social movement protesting greed to solely benefit himself. That’s a sh-tload of irony there. And let’s not pretend these billionaires amassed their fortunes by being kind and altruistic. You don’t get to that level without being ruthless.

    I thought Dr Dre already hit a billion? #WestCoastBestCoast

  7. babsjohnson says:

    Congrats to Jay on that well-deserved sh$tload of money.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I’ve got an MBA and I’m old enough to be Jay-Z’s very young mother. But I always thought of him as an incredible businessman and an icon on the level of Berry Gordy who “created” Motown. Jay-Z is/was a visionary and that’s why he’s got all that money. Dude can see for miles and miles when it comes to music and business.

        In fighting for equal representation, we can forget that minorities are just people. And there can be both good and bad people. If we don’t change the nature and power of corporations, then simply the most amoral and sociopathic minorities will rise through the ranks and nothing will actually change.
