#7 – Jay-Z (Shawn Corey Carter)
Currently worth more than $500 million, this rapper turned business mogul is one of the best-selling hip-hop performers, but he has also leveraged his success in many areas of business. With a label of his own, sold out tours, several restaurants, a line of clothing, a line of champagne, and even a musical talent agency, he is positioned to remain as one of the highest earning pop stars of all time. When his wealth is combined with that of his wife, Beyoncé Knowles, it is believed the couple is worth more than one billion dollars.
