      BEATS by Dre. Google it, the sales figures are mind blowing. I don’t even know how Jay Z keeps making it to the top of the list. Roca Wear was sold ages ago. Live Nations was a 150 million dollar deal. Roc Nation only has Rihanna, J Cole and Kanye as Artists. So where is his money really coming from. D’Usse cognac can’t hold a candle to Ciroc in terms of sales. He’s def over blown. But he’s wealthy, nonetheless.

      What investments does he have? Song writing and singing can’t take you very far. If it’s his clothes, they were panned.
