3 great rappers mentored by singer and producer Jay-Z

The billionaire star has a vast experience in the music industry. Thanks to that, and his good heart, the rapper helped many young singers when they were starting their careers. Jay-Z mentored Kanye West, J. Cole and Rihanna. Scroll down and find out all the details!

  • Kanye West is married to Kim Kardashian and together they have four children: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
  • J Cole was born in Germany but raised in North Carolina. He has a net worth of $60 million
  • Rihanna was born in Barbados on February 20th, 1988. She was on the Artist 100 Chart for 234 weeks according to Billboard.
  • Jay-Z  is married to Beyoncé Knowles and together they have three children. The star has a net worth of $1 billion. He is a singer, producer and mentor. 

1. Kanye West

A very well known record company, “Roc-A-Fella records”, signed a contract with West. A few years later, Jay-Z admitted they were not very sure about it. Because of that, the rapper started protecting him at that moment and even teaching him what he had already learned.

It all ended up very badly when Kim Kardashian's husband filed a lawsuit in 2012 against the New York records company.

When the young singer was trying to make his way through, he tried convincing Jay-Z he was good! Cole waited three long hours outside the New Yorker's office to hand him a demo. At first, the hip-hopper was not sure about it, until some years later Beyoncé's husband became his mentor.

The 22 Grammy Award winner even gave Jermaine a necklace of his own company, ROC NATION, as a very special gift.

3. Rihanna

The moment Jay-Z heard the Barbados star singing he decided he needed to mentor her. He even wanted the Caribbean girl to sign a contract in that precise moment! At that time, the father-of-three was part of another record company, “Def Jam”, and when he founded his own, the unmarried star followed him.

Jay-Z clearly knows what he does. He has a pretty good ear for young talents, and that is why he is a billionaire! Let's hear one of his latest hits now!
