About Shawn Corey Carter

American rapper, businessman and occasional actor, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, has an estimated net worth of $900 million. Embodying the rags-to-riches rap dream, Jay-Z pulled himself up by his bootstraps as a youth to eventually become the reigning rapper of New York City and, in turn, a major-label executive following his short-lived retirement from music-making.

Jay-Z sold Rocawear clothing label for $204 million in 2007, signed 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal in 2008 and holds stakes in New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club chain, and ad firm Translation. His memoir, Decoded, hit bookstores in November 2010; business-focused biography Empire State of Mind by Forbes' Zack O'Malley Greenburg followed in March.

He has sold approximately 100 million albums worldwide while receiving 21 Grammy Awards for his musical work, and numerous additional nominations.

Shawn Corey Carter was born on December 4, 1969, in Brooklyn, New York City, New York. He married American R&B superstar Beyoncé Knowles on April 4, 2008, and on January 7, 2012, she gave birth to their daughter, named Blue Ivy Carter, at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
