Jay Z goes on legendary Twitter rant thanking all of his inspirations

Last night,  Jay-Z took to Twitter to thank those who have been an inspiration to him. The rant mentioned both legendary rappers and new blood.

We barely see the rap mogul make any noise on Twitter. So, why was Hov going off? Oh, you don’t know? So, you fell asleep in February and just woke up today?

Yesterday, June 15, 2017, was an important date in music history, make sure you mark your calendar! Jay-Z became the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.

His lyrics have given inspiration to those who had no hope and have paved the path for many other wordsmiths after him.

Yesterday, he humbly took a seat alongside the best writers in music history, reminding us on Twitter that it’s not just a win for him it’s a win for us.

Turned a fad into something legendary

Jay-Z has been running the rap game for years and after the SHOF announced that he would be inducted, he received the wide praise of his colleagues.

Fellow artists such as Nas, Chance The Rapper, Andre 3000, Nicki Minaj, Swizz Beatz, and more artists took to Tidal to celebrate Hov’s induction. The tributes include essays and videos marking the special moments each artist had with Jay-Z.

But as for Hov’s appreciative spree on Twitter last night, the specific selection of artists who have inspired him was quite interesting. Jay-Z had a long list of legends including Rakim, KRS, Nas, Pac,  Redman, and much more.

He even mentioned Pres. Barack Obama, who inducted him into the Hall of Fame

What surprised me the most? The appreciation Hov showed to the young rap artist, like, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Playboi Carti, and ASAP.

It was Hov’s selection of Mac Miller that turned a lot of heads. I’ve never seen Mac fans so hype. Mac Miller actually became a trending topic last night after Hov mentioned him.

When Mac saw this tweet he definitely screamed like a teenage girl, shit, I would’ve

This had me dead

Just peep the spree, where Hov thanked over 90 rappers, yourself

Haha Hov getting tight at Twitter

Hov definitely on one right now, we hope this rant means some new material may be on the way…
