The majority of Jay-Z’s income is the result of smart investments and business ventures, such as clothing lines, sports teams, music streaming and restaurants.

Successful entrepreneur and go-getter Ryan Glover has always been excited about the entertainment industry despite his inability to rap, sing, or dance. For him, it has always been from a business perspective. Using his passion for entertainment, specifically music from all over the country, Glover began to build his resume right in Washington, D.C. at Howard University. “I saw the energy being created all over and thought it would be an amazing idea to bring that energy to Washington D.C. onto Howard’s campus,” he tells Black Tech Green Money host Will Lucas.
