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.

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