Jay-Z has become the first rapper to become a billionaire according to Forbes.
The musician, 49, reached the milestone thanks to business interests in fashion, a sports management company and a $70m (£55.2m) stake in Uber.
Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce also own equity in the streaming service Tidal, which helps bring in more money.
Forbes suggests his net worth “conservatively totals” about $1bn (£789m).
