Jay-Z has officially added “Hall of Fame”-er to his portfolio, which already includes him being an award-winning rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. 

The self-proclaimed “Best Rapper Alive” was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday night, joining the likes of the Foo Fighters, Carole King, Tina Turner, The Go-Gos, and Todd Rundgren.

Jay-Z came through the rap world with strong, honest songs that often reflected the problems of Black people in America. He was once a heroin dealer on the dangerous streets of Brooklyn, New York. He has 14 No. 1 albums and songs such as “Hard Knock Life,” “99 Problems,” and “Empire State of Mind” in his discography.
