The legendary artist’s first work “Reasonable Doubt” turned 25 earlier this year and since 1996 Jay-Z has become not only a Hip Hop legend, but some even venture to consider him the epitome of the genre and everything every artist should aspire to be. The 51-year-old MC was inducted by Dave Chappelle whom put on quite the show for the induction as we all expected, however Chappelle wasn’t alone, he was joined virtually by Beyonce, DJ Khaled, Sean Combs, Usher, Rihanna, Pharrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Foxx, Regina King, Ed Sheeran, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, H.E.R., LeBron James, Common and John Legend, among others on the induction. When taking the stage to receive the award Jay-Z thanked his mother Gloria Carter, Roc-A-Fella founders Dame Dash and Kareem “Biggs” Burke, and many more before confessing to the crowd of approximately 12,000 “Y’all trying to make me cry in front of all these white people!”.
