Expensive Taste: Jay-Z
If we’re being technical then our comment about Beyoncé being the richest person on the list is still true because she’s married to Jay-Z and what’s his is hers. If we’re not being technical then Jay-Z definitely wins that race because the American rapper is worth $810 million dollars. Yes, 810. That wasn’t a typo.
Shawn Corey Carter AKA Jay-Z has been a part of the music industry since the 80’s, and boy has he had an impact. He’s one of the top selling music artists of all time having sold more than 36 million albums in the USA alone. He’s released 13 studio albums in his 30 year career, and of course, he married Beyoncé.
The Carter family car collection is not so much about quantity, but quality. Jay-Z and Bey own at least 5 cars that we’re aware of, but the cars themselves are amazing. First off is Jay’s Pagani Zonda F, a sports car with a price tag of $675,000 dollars. Next is his $2 million dollar birthday gift from his wife, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. Bey herself owns a Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR worth at least $455,500. Next is her classic 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, a $1 million dollar present from her husband on her 25th birthday.
Lastly is the Carter family wheels. The family worth over a billion dollars drive around in style, of course. Their Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Limousine isn’t that pricey as is, but it went up a lot after they spent around $1 million fitting it out with a new sound system, DirecTV, WiFi and more.
