Jay Z has been announced as a member of this year’s Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees, a first for a rapper.
“This is a win for US,” Hov tweeted, following the announcement. “I remember when rap was said to be a fad. We are now alongside some of the greatest writers in history.”
Previous inductees include Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson.
Songwriters are eligible for induction after writing hit tracks for at least 20 years. Jay Z offered his debut album ‘Reasonable Doubt’ in 1996.
