Rapper-producer Jay Z is celebrated his 50th birthday on December 4 and decided to give his fans a gift.

The hip hop mogul has made his entire life's work available on the popular Spotify, the rival of his own streaming service, Tidal.

Forbes magazine has revealed that rapper Jay-Z is the first hip-hop artist in history to become a billionaire.

JAY-Z IS BACK ON SPOTIFY

As an early Christmas-cum-birthday gift, Jay-Z has re-released his music catalog on Spotify, to the joy of his millions of fans.

This is quite a gesture, considering that the Swedish media-service provider is the most popular audio streaming platform in the world, and a rival to his own streaming service, Tidal.

FANS REACT TO JAY-Z'S "GIFT"

Jay-Z's fans posted hundreds of comments on Spotify's announcement, expressing their joy at having access to the singer's work on their favorite platform once again.

In April 2017 Jay-Z had removed his solo work from Apple and Spotify. Shortly after, Jay-Z was back on Apple, but he banned the streaming of his music on Spotify ever since.

JAY-Z's STREAMING COMPANY IS NOT THRIVING

One of the reasons Jay-Z has returned his repertoire to Spotify may be the company's staggering profits, another may be Tidal's lagging customer base.

In 2014 Jay-Z acquired Tidal for $56 million and in 2015 he brought in several other artists, including Rihanna and Alicia Keys as co-owners.

Jay-Z has angrily denounced the Norwegian company who sold him Tidal for inflating their customer base numbers at the time of the transaction.

JAY Z IS HIP HOP'S FIRST BILLIONAIRE

According to Forbes Jay-Z's assets total over $1 billion and include interests in entertainment, sports management, fashion, art, real estate, and of course, music.

Jay-Z's wife, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, is one of America’s richest self-made women, so between the two of them, the Carters wield considerable financial clout.
