According to Forbes’ real-time update on Friday, March 24, Jay-Z is the world’s 1,203rd wealthiest person.
With a reported valuation of $216.1 billion, French business magnate Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton, currently ranks first on that list.
If Forbes’ $2.5 billion estimate is correct, JAY-net Z’s worth has nearly doubled since last year, when he was estimated to be worth $1.4 billion.
Jay-Z became Hip Hop’s first billionaire in 2019 thanks to his “vast holdings in liquor, art, real estate (homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons, and Tribeca), and stakes in companies such as Uber.”
