He had been recognised as a pop and Hip-Hop for some time, but now Jay Z is shining light on rappers and leading by example. The Hip Hop artist will become the first rapper ever to be inducted into the songwriters hall of fame!
Jay Z has heaped massive praise for his accolade and well deserved at that, especially from the CEO of Billboard, "This is an enormous accomplishment for Jay, as well as on behalf of fellow hip-hop songwriters everywhere, as he takes his place alongside past inductees and legends, ranging from Bob Dylan to Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye to Lennon & McCartney."
Congratulations to the Carters, who are taking over the world at the moment!
