Published

JAY-Z aka The Billi G.O.A.T. is officially a billionaire, according to Forbes. In a Forbes cover story, it is revealed that his fortune “conservatively totals $1 billion, making him one of only a handful of entertainers to become a billionaire—and the first hip-hop artist to do so.”

Congrats to the OG Big Homie for reaching this milestone that he spoke and worked into existence! It started with the thought, then he affirmed, now it’s a reality!

It started twelve years ago when Jay affirmed on 50 Cent’s “I get money (Remix)… “I’m already the GOAT, next stop is the billi” then a year later on Lil Wayne’s “A Milli” Beat Jay further declares…

“Geah, a billi, a billi, a billi a billionaire
Call me Philli Collins, I feel a billion is in the air
I affiliate, with Billy Gates, that’s my peer
And John Meneilly-onaire is my consigliere
When I wear Billionaire Boys Club, it’s more than gear
I don’t wear it cause Pharrell, I wear it ’cause I’m fo’real

(I see dead people)
I see Benjamins and a billion other big head people
I’m a natural born hustler, Marcy Projects motherf#$&r

Other mentions include… On Smile… “Bet before I go I put a Billion on the board”

This is proof that if you want something to happen you must first imagine it in your mind then bring it to fruition

Forbes states…  Jay-Z’s steadily growing kingdom is expansive, encompassing liquor, art, real estate (homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons, Tribeca) and stakes in companies like Uber.

Clap 👏🏾 for him! Salute to the billionaire from Marcy for breaking down that barrier… NOW WHO’S NEXT???? We didn’t come this far to just come this far!

Swizz Beatz Wants to Create Rapper Reparations

Published

on

Swizz Beatz not only wants to give a minimum of one million dollars to artists like Melle Mel and the Sugar Hill Gang, but he believes rappers should be paying taxes to them, as well.

The Verzuz battles have gone from a COVID-19 quarantine phenomenon to a full-on business move for Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. Their series quickly shifted from two artists “battling” it out on Instagram Live by playing their best career hits to a celebration of music that boasts over one million viewers. While there have been plenty of rising artists of recent years who want a piece of the Verzuz pie, Swizz and Timbaland remain dedicated to showcasing the icons and legends who have helped pave the way for many of the artists topping the charts today.
While speaking with Joe Budden on Instagram Live for Beatz’s Zone Radio, Swizz shared that he believes newer rappers should be “paying taxes” to the icons. “We can’t mix the hype with the reality of what this all started from,” Swizz said. “I want to raise a million dollars for each icon that started hip hop. Kool Herc on down.” Budden agreed.”The fact we’re not paying taxes on who started hip hop shows we don’t f*cking really love hip hop,” Swizz continued. “The fact we don’t pay taxes as artists to those icons that paved the way, took the lower cut for the music that allow us to feed our family… F*ck the government. We need to be paying taxes to the creatives of hip hop that gave us freedom of speech to move forward. I’m going to go so hard with that.” Swizz added “Melle Mel, Grandmaster Flash, and Sugar Hill Gang, minimum a million a piece.” Watch Swizz Beatz give his passionate petition for legends of hip hop below.

Uber Wants More Grub

Published

Uber is looking to acquire food delivery service Grubhub, according to multiple reports. Grubhub shares shot up 29% as if it were a soggy burger excited to finally become someone’s dinner.

Zoom out: Food delivery is a fierce business, so consolidation was on the menu this year, global pandemic or not. The WSJ reported in February that industry players like Uber, DoorDash, and Postmates were already sketching out ways they might combine to not completely cannibalize one another.

For Uber, this could be a seamless acquisition in more ways than one.

  • Its food delivery arm, Uber Eats, has been surging during the lockdowns, with Q1 bookings up over 50% annually.
  • However, the company’s core rides business was down about 80% in April, forcing it to implement harsh cost-cutting measures. Last week, Uber laid off 3,700 employees, or 14% of its total workforce.

But it’s not crawling into a shell. Besides its reported interest in Grubhub, Uber is leading a $170 million investment in e-scooter and bike company Lime.
