Jay Z's back to making some major headlines!
The Brooklyn emcee was just listed on Forbes' 2017 Hip Hop's Wealthiest Artists list, coming in at #2 just behind Diddy. "Jay Z’s fortune has jumped 30% in the past year after a $200 million investment from Sprint reportedly put the valuation of his music-streaming service, Tidal, at $600 million, more than 10 times what he paid for the company two years ago," Forbes wrote.
ON TOP OF THAT... Jay announced that he's just inked an exclusive $200 million touring deal with Live Nation. That's a 10-year contract right there!
"The deal is a continuation of Jay's previous partnership with Live Nation and will include global touring produced and promoted by the entertainment company," Complex reports.
"Live Nation and I entered unchartered territory in 2008," Jay Z said in a statement provided to Complex Thursday. "Over nine years, we have traveled the world producing historic music experiences. [Live Nation Entertainment CEO] Michael Rapino is an industry visionary, and this renewed partnership is a testament to our longstanding relationship and the talented individuals at Live Nation. For the next 10 years, we will continue redefining the live event landscape."
