Jay Z was just inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. This is a big deal, as Jay Z is the first rapper in history to be honored with an invitation.
Favorite former President Barack Obama gave the speech at the Hall of Fame Gala, where Jay Z was honored. “I’m pretty sure I’m still the only President to listen to Jay Z’s music in the Oval Office,” Barry-O joked, “That may change at some point, but I’m pretty sure that’s true now.”
Former President Obama gave a lovely and endearing speech in honor of the Brooklyn born rapper; listing their parallels. They both came from nothing, know what it’s like to not have a father around, and are both suckers for their daughters.
