Jay-Z will be the first rapper ever inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame. Jay has had a long career and has written songs for over the past 20 years or so. He is definitely a force to be reckoned with and that is obvious because he is the first for such a distinct honor. Also getting their props are Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Babyface and Barry Gordy Jr. The ceremony takes place in New York in June. Jay-Z has once again proven that he is not just a business man, he IS a BUSINESS, man!
