It’s a unique group . . . one that reveals numerous white billionaires in America, but information says there are only six African American billionaires. Where does his wealth originate? Fourteen No. 1 albums, a clothing line called Iconix, cognac brand D’Usse and a music streaming service called Tidal.

MICHAEL JORDAN: BASKETBALL LEGEND TO BUSINESS TYCOON
Watching Michael Jordan “dribble and dunk” for almost two decades, most did not question his agility, skill-set and ability to maneuver the next “move,” but few believed he would be as successful in the business world as he was on the basketball court. Well…he is.
Sources place his financial worth at $2.1 billion and climbing. Several financial streams contribute to that worth: the Air Jordan Brand, ownership of the Charlotte Hornets, endorsement deals with Gatorade, Hanes and Upper Deck. He also owns seven restaurants, a car dealership and homes in Illinois, North Carolina and Utah.
