  • IMO

    I get that people believe in this whole illuminati thing…but why is it so hard to believe that his business sense, deals, and skill got him where he is on Forbes lists, without the help of some magic entertainment cult?

  • WHAT ??

    @IMO I co-sign !!! His career didn’t magically happen, we saw him build up his success from the ground up. People are obsess with that illuminati shit. STOP ACTING LIKE HE DID THAT SHIT OVERNIGHT.

    Big up HOV, its great to be in the presence of a successful black man

  • Unconform_normality

  • Jayhov

    I think all the Illuminati comments are ignorant. First it was all successful black men must be big time drug dealers.
    Now in order for a black man to be successful, he must join some cult?

    I wonder how Birdman feels?

  • Android

    No one on DIPSET will ever be on this cover. EVER! NOT EVER!

  • pissed

    Self made BOSS. Thats what im talkin about.

  • ESCO

    How exactly did Nas lose?

    I think you need to listen to “Friends” on Distant Relatives to know what Nas thinks about this whole being a billionaire and a businessman thing.

    As Lupe said, not every rapper wants to be a billionaire.

    In fact, Jay-Z is the one who has chased this as much as any man could, that’s partially why he’s in this position, hard work and determination.

    A lot of other rappers don’t have the motivation, they come from nothing and believe they are blessed with what they have, there’s no reason to pursue something they’re not wanting to be. The suckas will go for it and fail.

  • ESCO

    Also, Jay-Z didn’t build his empire alone, so saying that he’s self made is bullshit.

    Without trying to stir shit up, in all honesty someone like 50 Cent is self made. Jay-Z is not.

  • Fuck Ya Life

    I wonder what Dame Dash is thinking as he see’s this?

    Can’t do nothing but applaud this dude’s success, all them other rappers on the bottom of the food chain talking bout getting money look at this cover. That’s a true definition of getting money.

  • Decnent

    Atta boy Hov.

  • Jayhov

    Hov has always said he’s no role model and he doesn’t like to preach. He just leads by example!
    From standing on the corners bopping, to standing on the cover of Forbes mag with Warren Buffet!

  • pissed

    i didnt mean self made like he did it himself, I meant self mad like he started out independent and built up from nothing. Thats all.

  • hova da god i should be rappin in a turban

    WORLD CAN’T HOLD ME ,TO MUCH AMBITION .. HOVA=GOAT.

  • JDot

    Clap for ‘em..

    Wow, watched the interview that is crazy..

  • wow…horrible

    It amazes me that people say other rappers are at the bottom because they are not on a cover of Forbes…there are wealthy rappers who are not on this cover but are still successful. Jay has a great PR team because they know that image is everything to those who have nothing that is why you broke stans lose your mind over pics like this.

    CAMEL IS MAKING MONEY. NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE THE BEST DISCOGRAPHY IN HIP HOP HISTORY, BUT HE ALSO HAS THE BEST ENTREPRENEURIAL RESUME IN RAP AS WELL.

    LOOK AT HIS BODY OF WORK = IT BODIES EMINEM AND NAS. THOSE DUDES HAVE MAD SKILLS — I LOVE THEM BOTH — BUT JAY IS BY FAR THE MOST CONSISTENT. THIS YOU CAN’T DENY.

    HOV CAN DO EVERYTHING:

    • GRIMY ALBUM (REASONABLE DOUBT)
    • LYRICALLY-DOPE ALBUMS (RD, BLUEPRINT 1, BLACK ALBUM)
    • POSSE ALBUM (DYNASTY)

    J.Cole is where Jay-Z WAS at. Putting out first album near 25 years old, and sharing the experience from a more mature point of view. J.Cole might be the next Jay-Z, you know since Reasonable Doubt was almost not released, Cole may have to put out such a good album that he smacks the doubters with his actions. Well, Hov and Buffet got their money. I would be happy with 1 million.

And the people that dont like jay-z majority of them have some of his cd’s in the crib.

    Are we seriously, seriously, SERIOUSLY talkin shit about this man??? And u say u love hip hop?? Im not even down with the back and forth commenting with pple whose sole purpose is dissing Jay just for the sake of dissing him. Thats very sad, because pple usually look down on us, and instead of all of us being behind this guy and showing the world that black pple can have unity and hip hop as an a culture has become huge, we spend our time on internet blogs dissing him. WOW!! Did u even watch the 52 mins interview thats posted on the Forbes site?? Mr. Buffett said, and i quote “im very inspired by Jay, and his success speaks for itself. He’s been able to transcend his music genre even after having passed the age of usual relevancy”. So Warren Buffett, an outsider, respects this man, and you, an internet blog fiend disses him?? I mean, i have simple questions like can he rap?? Is he talented? Does he make ringtone rap? Has he surpassed the expectations when it comes to hip hop relevancy age wise? Is he smart? Has he been time and time again a trendsetter? Is he a brilliant businessman? This man is almost 41 yrs old, is well passed the age of relevancy in rap (a young man’s sport) and is still pound for pound the best doin it and the most relevant MC in the game. And yall question whether he’s down with the illuminati and shit like that?? We need to champion our people and be proud of those that show us a way out. HOPE. Im disgusted

  • pressure

    @ESCO nigga shut the fuck up, pardon my french amigos, there’s no such thing as a self made man. there’s a helping hand to every man’s success, regardless of how you look at it. Jay is as close as there is to being self made. He created a brand around himself, and sold it. In certain ways, you could call him a legal prostitute, but aren’t we all. We fuck for success, and we feel accomplished after it. Let’s have a toast for this multi-millionaire. *cues Runaway instrumental*

  • Agree

    @JDOT…Nas wins every time you try to hate on him…some of you Jay stans can’t seem to get past that 2001 “Ether” and let shit go like Nas and Jay did back in 2005! Grow the fuck up dude and listen to Nas’ song “Friends” when he quotes “A bunch a fucking know it all’s whose money is small.” Success comes in many forms.

  • scorpio

    For you simple minded mofos that say it’s the Illuminati behind Jay’s success, you are at least half correct in theory. Is there such thing as the Illuminati? It is possible, but why designate a possibly fictional organization to real establishments that we know for a fact actually do exist?

    We know for a fact that Bilderberg Group, the CFR, the Trilateral Group, the Club of Rome etc, etc all really do exist! There’s no questioning that. So by simplifying its the Illuminati all the time, you’re actually loosing the impact of the message that your trying to get across.

    Here’s the simple message. The ruling class elite want to lower the world population by at least 70% and set up one world government based on a cult like environmental religion that we will pay carbon taxes to a existing or future world bank.

    That’s basically the goal in the end. To get to that goal they will poison us through our water and food. They will kill and impair us with their vaccines. They will numb our senses with their medications. These are soft kill weapons. This is eugenics.

    You all need to do the deep research. The rabbit hole goes much deeper than Skull & Bones, Bohemian Grove and Masonic this and that. Research the things that are much easier to prove. The aspartame being put in tons of different foods. The fluoride in our water. The government white papers that say in their own words that we need to lower our population through stealth means.

    In the end. Jay Z obviously does have some strange spiritual beliefs. That’s quite obvious. It’s good to make people aware of this but there is a deeper level to it all. It would appear that Jay has made those connections with these anthropogenic elites that donate billions to the poorest countries in the world but somehow their money goes to fund vaccines that mutilate or infect the people with all sorts of diseases and neurological disorders. People like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Even Oprah.

    Yes, the rabbit hole goes much deeper!

  • mac DIESEL

    1) WUT JAY DOES HAS NOTHIN’ TO DO WITH NAS AND VICE-VERSA!!!! THERE’S NO COMPEITION BETWEEN THESE TWO IN BUSINESS OR LIFE IN GENERAL!!!! SO DEAD THAT FUCKIN’ SHIT!!!!

    2) ENOUGH OF THAT “IF BIGGIE WAS HERE” BULLSHIT!!!! WE WILL NEVER KNOW WHERE BIGGIE WOULD BE RIGHT NOW!!!! SO STOP THIS FUCKIN’ PSYCHIC I SEE THE FUTURE BULLSHIT!!!!

    3) EVERY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MAN/WOMAN HAS HAD A HELPING HAND!!!! NOBODY BECOMES SUCCESSFUL ON THEIR OWN!!!! THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A “SELF MADE” ANYBODY!!!! USE YA FUCKIN’ COMMON SENSE!!!!

    4) THE UNITED STATES IS A CAPITALIST COUNTRY!!!! WEALTH IS GONNA BE FLAUNTED EVERYWHERE YOU GO!!!! IT’S THE AMERICAN WAY AND CULTURE!!!! IF U DON’T LIKE IT THEN GET THE FUCK OUT!!!!

    5) JUST APPLAUD THAT NIGGA FOR BEING WHERE’S HE’S FROM AND BEING WHERE HE IS NOW!!!! SUCCESS HAS LESS TO DO WITH MONEY BUT MORE TO DO WIT SELF FULFILLMENT AND SETTIN’ A PERSONAL STANDARD FOR YOURSELF AND SUSTAININ’ IT!!!! SUCCESS COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS U ASSHOLES!!!!

    6) FIND YOUR OWN SUCCESS AND SET A GOOD EXAMPLE SO OTHERS CAN FOLLOW AND BE SUCCESSFUL!!!!

    ….ASSHOLES!!!! HA!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow if you click the article/video link and play the excerpt about “luck” Jay-Z admits that Jaz saved his life.

    P.S. Warren Buffett also spat in Jay’s face by stating how lucky he (Warren) is that he is not black.

    “art of giving lmao fuck does Jay Z know about giving the selfish fuck spent his entire def jam presidency blocking artist from our culture from progressing further and gettin shine dude personifies the meaning of selfish”

  • DR. Nick Black

    Great intelligent interview from Jay, Buffet and Forbes. Very informative.

  • DR. Nick Black

    @Gladd…but Warren meant by being born in the 30’s that his advantages were extremely greater being born a whiteman other than being born a blackman or a whitewoman.

  • y

    G

  • gladd

    @ DR. Nick Black

    Would Jay-Z have said he was “lucky not to be an old white man in hip hop” while sitting next to that old white man? No he wouldn’t, because he wouldn’t even want to risk disrespecting him.

    And on the topic of respect…why is there so much respect for that “moment?” Jay-Z is not in the actual Forbes 400 list. Quite frankly I don’t see what they have in common. They’re both lucky? They both “love what they do?” I don’t get it. Sitting down with a white man that has way more money than you is not a notable accomplishment.
