Shawn Corey Carter (born December 4, 1969),[3][4] known professionally as JAY-Z[5] (formerly stylized as Jay-Z and Jay Z),[6] is an American rapper and businessman. He is one of the best-selling musicians of all time, having sold more than 100 million records, while receiving 21 Grammy Awards for his music.[7][8][9] MTV ranked him the "Greatest MC of all time" in 2006.[10] Rolling Stone ranked three of his albums—Reasonable Doubt (1996), The Blueprint (2001), and The Black Album (2003)—among The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.[11][12][13] In 2017, Forbes estimated his net worth at $810 million, making him the second-richest hip hop artist in the U.S.[1]

Jay-Z owns the New York 40/40 Club sports bar, and is the co-creator of the clothing line Rocawear.[14] He is the former president of Def Jam Recordings, co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, and the founder of the entertainment company Roc Nation. He also founded the sports agency Roc Nation Sports and is a certified NBA and MLB sports agent.[15] As an artist, he holds the record for most number one albums by a solo artist on the Billboard 200 with 13.[16][17] He has also had four number ones on the Billboard Hot 100, one ("Empire State of Mind") as lead artist. In 2009, he was ranked the tenth-most successful artist of the 2000s by Billboard as well as the fifth top solo male artist and fourth top rapper behind Eminem, Nelly, and 50 Cent.[18] He was also ranked the 88th-greatest artist of all time by Rolling Stone.[19]

Jay-Z married singer Beyoncé in 2008.[20] As a couple, they have a combined net worth of $1.16 billion.[21]


Jermaine Lamarr Cole (born January 28, 1985), better known by his stage name J. Cole, is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer. Raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Cole initially gained recognition as a rapper following the release of his debut mixtape, The Come Up, in early 2007. Intent on further pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he went on to release two additional mixtapes after signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation imprint in 2009.

Cole released his debut studio album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, in 2011. It debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, and was soon certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[3] His next two releases, 2013's Born Sinner and 2014's 2014 Forest Hills Drive, received mostly positive reviews from critics,[4][5][6] while being both certified platinum in the US. The latter earned him his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album. In December 2016 Cole released his fourth studio album 4 Your Eyez Only. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum in April 2017.

Self-taught on piano, Cole also acts as a producer alongside his hip hop career, producing singles for artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Janet Jackson, as well as handling the majority of the production in his own projects.[7] He has also developed other ventures, including Dreamville Records, as well as non-profit organization the Dreamville Foundation.[8] In January 2015, Cole decided to house single mothers rent-free in his childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina.[9]
