In the book of power moves, Jay Z needs a few chapters to show how he went from Hip Hop star to a mogul that is well on his way to billionaire status.
With a career that has brought forth 12 studio albums, along with a rumored 13th album slated for release in the coming months, Jay Z has transcended any barriers that may have been set for him. Continuing to make major moves, today’s announcement makes for another game changer for the rapper.
Reported by Variety, it has been announced that Jay Z has signed a new $200 million touring deal with Live Nation. The deal, which will be across 10 years, will see Live Nation serving in the areas of producing and promoting concert events for the rapper on a worldwide scale. Not being the first of its type, similar deals have been made with other powerhouses, like Madonna.
Amazing news as it looks like we’ll have plenty of Jay Z shows in the years to come, it’s also exciting for the rapper’s pockets, who recently came in second on Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest list. All in all, it’s thrilling to think about all of the things that Shawn Carter has in store for his loyal legion of fans all across the world.
