Jay-Z recently relaunched Tidal, a $US20-per-month music streaming service that some are saying could spell trouble for other streaming sites like Spotify.
The launch is just the latest in a string of business successes for the 45-year-old rapper, who also owns a record label, talent agency, and fashion brand. His net worth has been estimated to be more than $US500 million.
Jay-Z has found success by creating his own opportunities.
In doing so, he’s gone from being a teen selling drugs on a Brooklyn street corner to a bona fide business mogul.
