To know me is to know that my favorite rapper of all time is Sean Carter aka Beyonce´ baby daddy aka Jay-Z!
So when the news broke that he was being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame I was too excited.
Tell the Grammys F! that 0 for 8 shit! Have you ever seen a crowd going apeshit.
Like most folks, I’ve been a fan since Reasonable Doubt. It’s something about the way he rhymes, combined with that Brooklyn confidence, Timberland boots and wisdom whenever he speaks.
My lady ain’t no bitch, she get’s whatever I own, so when you see her understand that’s me nigga. Understand I’m the same ole G nigga. I know the difference between a bitch and a B nigga!- Song Cry Live
As JAY-Z puts it, “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” His profound impact extends well beyond music, including fashion, sports ownership, and music streaming, and in 2019, he became hip-hop’s first billionaire. He’s hosted political fundraisers, performed at presidential inaugurations, and has been an outspoken advocate for civil rights. His 2017 song “The Story of O.J.” shined a spotlight on systemic racism and was nominated for three Grammys, including Record of the Year. Throughout it all, JAY-Z has maintained authenticity with hip-hop purists while still achieving incomparable commercial success. Many have tried, but no one has come close to knocking him off his throne.
The 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Saturday, October 30th in Cleveland, Ohio
