How Jay-Z Went From Living in Housing Projects to Becoming a Billionaire
“What’s better than one billionaire? Two,” Jay-Z famously rapped on his “4:44” album. Art is imitating life now that the rapper was named hip-hop’s first billionaire. Jay-Z now joins the legendary billionaire boys club, which features friend Warren Buffett, whom the rapper had malts with in 2010. Buffet appeared on the Forbes magazine 2010 cover. Forbes named Jay-Z the first rapper to hit the milestone, and it appears that he took advice from Buffett, the third-wealthiest man in America.
