Rappers brag about money at almost any opportunity possible. They might vocalize it on a record or in an interview, or they may simply drown you in images of their lavish lives on social media. Some do both. Every year, Forbes seperates the stunters from the phonies by releasing their annual earnings lists. This past year, Jay-Z overtook Diddy for the top spot as the Cash King. Beyonce graced Forbes‘ America’s Richest Self-Made Women list this past year as well. Jay-Z has long bragged to the world about his wealth, and his wife Beyonce has picked up the same habit. “I record then I ball,” raps Beyonce on “Boss.” She isn’t lying.
According to Forbes, Beyonce and Jay-Z are worth a combined $1.255 billion. HOV takes home the most money, he’s sitting on $900 million. Beyonce rakes in a massive $355 million to push the couple’s worth into the billions. Jay-Z makes his millions from investments in companies such as TIDAL, Armand de Brignac, and of course Roc Nation. Beyonce does have several endorsements herself, but the queen makes most of her money from touring. The superstar couple is currently on tour together, performing 48 shows worldwide for the On the Run II Tour.
