After being in the Guinness Book of World Records with Beyonce, Jay-Z became part of the 400 wealthiest men issue of Forbes magazine (USA). He was featured in the cover of the magazine with the third richest person, Warren Buffett.
The big-bucks pair took part in the first Forbes 400 Summit, where Jay-Z said, ”My first album didn’t come out until I was 26, so I had a bit more maturity. The album had all these emotions and complexities and layers that a typical hip-hop album didn’t have if you were making it at 16, 17 years old. That isn’t enough wealth of experience to share with the world. I had so much wealth to share with the world at that time, and I’ve never forgotten those things… You never forget those true things that you stick to, your basic things that make you successful.”
Jay-Z also gave advice of success. He talked about how the Internet has changed the music business, and how labels bungled the opportunity to work with Napster a decade ago rather than shutting the file-sharing service down.
The issue will be out this week. You can also check the video following the link bellow
