Can someone say cha-chinggg! Jay Z is the latest musician to sign with music promoter Live Nation.

Live Nation will be paying him A LOT of money. To be exact we're talking $150 million dollars.

His $150 million dollar contract will be over a 10-year period where he will get $25 million up front and $10 million for each album. Besides that, he will get $25 million for concert tours and $50 million for his other investments.
