It’s a big day for Jay Z. The rap veteran will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame during a star-studded event today (June 15).

Hov is the first rapper to ever be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition to Jay, musicians Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, James “Jimmy Jam” Harris III, Terry Lewis, Max Martin and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, Jr., will also be inducted into the hall.

“By the way, this is a win for US,” Jay Z tweeted after it was announced of his induction. “I remember when rap was said to be a fad. We are now alongside some of the greatest writers in history.”

In honor of his induction, fellow artists are saluting Jay Z for his venerable music career. Rappers Nicki Minaj, Andre 3000, Rakim, Chuck D, Common and more gave props to Hov.

“Thank you for giving us the blueprint,” said Nicki in her statement.”You’ve shown us al how to go from rappers, to business men and women. Style on ’em.”
