Jay-Z + Kanye West Take Home $6 Million After Performing at Sweet 16 Bash
And you thought your Sweet 16 party was memorable. Two weeks ago, Jay-Z and Kanye West were flown to Dubai to perform at the Sweet 16 bash of an Arab billionaire’s daughter, and they took home millions of dollars for their time.
The Sun reports that the hip-hop superstars pocketed nearly $6 million for the single performance — roughly $2.97 million each. Talk about living the good life! The ‘Watch the Throne’ rappers, who are nominated for a combined 10 awards at the 2012 Grammys, including Best Rap Album for their collaborative effort and Best Rap Song for ‘Otis,’ played multiple sets during the show.
The lucky birthday girl is the sister of Sheikh Mansour, owner of British soccer club Manchester City. They are part of the ruling family of the United Arab Emirates.
Just one question: How can you possibly top Jay-Z and Kanye? We can’t even begin to imagine this billionaire’s dilemma as he faces the daunting task of trying to make his daughter’s 17th birthday party next year even bigger and better.
