Hov has always done it for the culture. Roc-A-Fella Records through to Roc Nation. The ever-gracious JAY Z just declared his entry into the Songwriters Hall of Fame a win for US.


Side note: Did you know he had been considered for nomination numerous times? But, as the SHoF President put it in an interview with the New York Times earlier today, “our board and community wasn’t ready.” Hov has 21 Grammys, the most #1 albums for a solo artist ever, six classic albums, three albums on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All-Time,” and is a 20-year Billboard record setter and breaker. But they weren’t ready to accept rap music as a legitimate form of musical expression. Today WE won.

JAY Z just dropped an exclusive playlist on TIDAL titled “Songwriting Hall of Fame” that compiles a short few of the greatest rap tracks ever written. 

This is another team player move by Hov on a day he declared his induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame as a win for the genre.
