Shawn Carter’s Business School of Dead Presidents

Shawn Carter aka Beyonce’s husband aka Jay-Z has sold one-third of Tidal, his music streaming service, to Sprint for $200 million according to CNN Money and Billboard. Jay-Z bought Tidal in 2015 for $56 million from Aspiro, a small tech company.

According to Forbes, Jay-Z and the other artists that own Tidal (which I believe includes Beyonce) will retain equity and will continue to run the streaming service.

For a lack of a better term, Jay and em hit a lick with this Sprint deal.

(Hit a lick explained: To gain a sh*t load of money in a short amount of time – Urban Dictionary)

With an estimated net worth of $650 million, who better to teach us than Shawn Carter himself about how to acquire, maintain, and manage these dead presidents. I have suggestions for the curriculum.

  1. Haha I can dig it. I had this discussion with a few of my guys on if this shows the success of Jay Z or Tidal. If i bought a company for 56 mil and sold a third of it for 200 mil. I think that’s a success. Nice post bro keep it up.
