After a career of making numerous hits, Jay Z has been acknowledged for his prolific writing by being inducted into the 2017 Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. Although he was absent from the induction ceremony, Hova offered up a serious name drop by having former president, Barack Obama, bless the audience with a pre-recorded message.

With his induction, Jay Z becomes the FIRST hip-hop artist to receive the honor. When the news broke that he would be in this year’s induction class, Jay Z noted what the honor meant to the hip-hop community by stating, it’s “the most important moment in hip-hop history.”

While he was not in attendance at the ceremony, Jay took to Twitter to shout-out rappers who inspired him and those he had epic rivalries with, and acknowledged all those who wrote rap lyrics by saying, “Salute to anybody who made a song to feed their family or just vent.”

The other songwriters inducted along with Jay Z this year were: Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Max Martin, Robert Lamm, James Pankow, Peter Cetera, and Barry Gordy.
