Jay Z just stacked up another win after he was nominated this week for the the 2017 class of The Songwriters Hall of Fame. If Hov gets the nod, he’ll become the first Hip=Hop artists to receive the prestigious honor. Artists become eligible after their first 20 years of writing hits. This year marks the 20th year since the release of Jay Z’s classic album Reasonable Doubt which featured hit singles “Dead Presidents,” “Ain’t No Nigga,” “Can’t Knock The Hustle” and “Feelin’ It.”
The hits have followed over the years and include such smashes as “Hard Knock Life,” “Money Ain’t A Thing” and “Empire State of Mind.”
R&B legends Kool & The Gang and Babyface as well as Bryan Adams,George Michael, Madonna, Vince Gill and Max Martin are also nominees for the class of 2017. Voters have to cast their official ballots by November and the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held June 15 in New York City.
Roc Nation also congratulated their boss on his latest achievement.
Salute to Hov and we hope you get in this year.
