Jay Z is the first rapper to ever be inducted into the US Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he seems to be over the moon about it. The proof: he tweeted.

Unlike many celebrities nowadays, the rapper does not engage in social media too often, which is why his tweet proved his excitement. "This is a win for us. I remember when rap was said to be a fad. We are now alongside some of the greatest writers in history," he said.

There have also been reports saying that a handful of artists are considered every year for their songwriting and music, which are said to have "enriched the world's culture." According to BBC News, this is especially a big deal, because as Jay Z himself mentioned, the list is filled with the greats, including Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson.
