That’s right, Jay Z is going to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. This has been seven years in the making. He was nominated all the way back in 2010 but it was just confirmed that he will in fact be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
“Since 1996, 21-time Grammy award winner, Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter has dominated an evolution in popular culture. With more than 100 million records sold he is one of the best-selling musicians of all time,” the Songwriters Hall Of Fame site said about the induction of Jay Z.
I have to give HOV credit, that’s pretty awesome. I hope that Nas is the next rapper inducted because his music is out of this world incredible.
