About Shawn Corey Carter
American rapper, businessman and occasional actor, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, has an estimated net worth of $810 million in May 2017, according to Forbes. 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.
