Jay-Z

Founder

The latest affirmations of Jay-Z’s significant recording career came in March, when “Savage” won Best Rap Song, his 23rd Grammy, breaking a tie with Kanye West for most by a rapper; and then in October, with his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. Various business enterprises have also crowded his calendar since 2004, and this year is no exception, like the champagne partnership with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and his appointment to Square’s board of directors in March. The following month saw him invest in sports e-commerce play Fanatics, joining its board and teaming on the company’s bid for a New York gaming license, which would make Jay the first Black investor to procure one in that state’s history. Through his cannabis brand, Monogram, he gets his views known on regulation reform.
