“Businessmen” of the Entertainment World

Jay – Z is more than just a hip hop artist, he is a successful businessman, he has dabbled in mens fragrences, sports teams, sports bars, and hotels.  Men’s Health did a story covering Jay-Z’s success in life and in business. The story talks about what Jay-Z has done to create his success and some of his role models when he was growing up. On pages 76 and 77 in C. Wright Mills The Power Elite, Mills discusses how in the early days of the “celebrity” the majority of these famous people were primarily entertainers and not  unlike today some of “them could be considered ‘businessmen’ of the entertaining world.”
