Tonight, Shawn “JAY Z” Carter is inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the first rapper at that.

To celebrate, Tidal gathered friends and long time associates of Jay’s to share their thoughts on the achievement.

Toast to another win!

What’s up everybody? I decided to give y'all a some more Weeknd/Polaroid-style album covers. These have been very successful for my blog and I gotta thank everyone who has been liking, reblogging, commenting, everything. It is greatly appreciated. Enjoy!

Jay Z photographed in the studio with production duo The Neptunes in February 2010. Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams would contribute “Gotta Have It” to Hov and Kanye West’s 2011 Watch the Throne collaboration album.

Not many know that a young Chad Hugo played saxophone on Jay’s 1997 single “The City is Mine.” Teddy Riley, the track’s producer, was the first person to introduce Hov to The Neptunes, which as we know now would result in many, many hit tracks.
