- This will make Jay Z the third solo rapper to hang his mic in the RRHOF, after both Tupac Shakur who made it in 2017 and the Notorious B.I.G. who wrote his signature in 2020
- The saddest bit is that both Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. were enshrined posthumously
- Another notable name who landed a nomination for the top recognition is none other than the legendary diva Dionne Warwick
American rapper Jay Z is one of the most celebrated music icons in the world. The rapper not only managed to succeed in the much-competitive music industry but also in other fields such as business.
From just a rapper, to an astute business mogul, Jay Z is indeed the envy of many young people, specifically those who grew up in the late 90s and early 2000s.
With all that said, it is clear the star deserves recognition and accolades to compliment his celebrity status.
Legit.ng has learnt the rapper recently scored himself a spot as one of the nominees for the members of the class of 2021 at the Rock and Roll hall of fame, which were announced Wednesday, February 10, 2021, morning.
For those in the dark, this happens to be one of the biggest fetes for the world-acclaimed rapper because if he gets the much-needed votes, then, this will make him the third solo rapper to hang his mic in the RRHOF, after both Tupac Shakur who made it in 2017 and the Notorious B.I.G. who wrote his signature in 2020.
The saddest bit is that both Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. were enshrined posthumously.
Other people who made it to this year's nomination are none other than Foo Fighters, who landed their first-ever nomination for the top recognition.
Another notable name who landed a nomination for the top recognition is none other than the legendary diva Dionne Warwick who happens to be a first-time nominee who has been eligible since way back in 1988.
Other people who made their way to the Rock and Roll World Hall Of Fame nomination included first-timers such as the Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden Auntie Dionne.
Representing Africa, Nigeria's great musician Fela Kuti landed himself a polite nomination into the high table.
Legit.ng previously reported that the top music executive announced his plans to team up with Long Island University Brooklyn to establish his own school of music.
Jay-Z's Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment will offer undergraduate degrees in music and music technology, among others. The institution will also hold summer residential camps for high school students.
