Sean Carter. Hova. Jay-Z. The rapper who famously launched his career out of a housing project in Brooklyn is known by many names, and, increasingly, he's becoming known as a business mogul who's a jack of all trades.

Big brands like Budweiser have with him and the agency he's partner in (with Steve Stoute), Translation. Last fall, Jay was the curator and the headliner for the first annual "Budweiser Made in America" festival at Fairmont Park in Philadelphia. He's also consults on marketing strategy and creative.

Then this April, Jay-Z launched his own sports marketing agency, Roc Nation Sports in partnership with Creative Artists Agency, and he'll rep talent -- essentially spreading his wings in to PR and 
consulting. All the while, he's remained a content creator in his own right with his Life + Times website.
