JAY-Z has one of the longest careers in Hip Hop history and the longest streak of being commercially viable while maintaining his skill level and receiving widespread critical & fan acclaim. His verse on a major label was on The Jaz's classic 1990 single 'The Originators' but didn't release his debut album until 1996, 'Reasonable Doubt' was released by his own label Roc-A-Fella after years of not being able to land a record deal. Roc-A-Fella later signed a partnership with Def Jam and JAY-Z became the biggest artist in Rap as Roc-A-Fella became an empire. Presently JAY-Z is a Rap billionaire, owning Roc Nation & TIDAL with his hands in countless other endeavors while appearing on the new Jay Electronica album 'A Written Testimony'.
Currently JAY-Z owns Roc Nation, TIDAL, S. Carter Enterprises and all their subsidiaries.
JAY-Z's current net worth largely due to Roc Nation, TIDAL, partnerships with Live Nation and the NFL is slighty over a billion dollars.
While JAY-Z owns Roc Nation he doesn't run it. The CEO is Desiree Perez, President is Michael Yormack and Senior Vice President of Roc Nation is Lenny 'Lenny S' Santiago.
Another name for God is Jehova. JAY-Z began calling himself 'Jay Hova' on songs referring to himself as 'The God MC'. Rakim Allah is widely considered 'The God Of Rap' so JAY-Z shortened 'Jay Hova' to 'Hova' which has been further truncated to 'Hov' by fans.
No. JAY-Z sold his minority ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets back in 2013 because the NBA has a policy that NBA owners aren't allowed to represent NBA players. When Roc Nation launched a sports management division it meant JAY-Z could no longer be an NBA owner.
JAY-Z is co-founder and owner of TIDAL which was launched in 2014 by Norwegian company Aspiro and acquired by Project Panther Bidco which is owned and controlled by JAY-Z's S. Carter Enterprises.
JAY-Z's earliest albums and a few of his singles are still on Spotify but the overwhelming majority of his back catalog has been removed.
While both JAY-Z and Beyonce have incorporated a great deal of plant based, vegan & vegetarian options to their diets they still eat meat and seafood, just far less than they used to. No, he is not vegan.
All signs point to yes that at some point in the near future JAY-Z will become part of the ownership group of either an existing NFL franchise, an expansion team or one that moves to another location after the Roc Nation/NFL partnership went into effect if the NFL doesn't have a policy in place preventing the owner of a sports management company from being an NFL owner like the NBA does.
