Music pioneer Quincy Jones wants the world to know Jay Z did much more than just enter the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The iconic producer, who has worked with some of the music biz’s biggest entertainers, issued a public statement on Young Hov’s impact on pop culture.
Jones went to Instagram Friday (June 16) to publicly salute Young Hov and even referenced the hip-hop mogul becoming a dad again.
I can't tell you how proud I am of my brother, #JayZ, for becoming the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame…Hip-hop is a huge part of our culture and it makes my soul smile to see it get the recognition it deserves. This is truly a monumental achievement and he has definitely earned the right to be there. Congratulations on this honor…as well as the two new additions to your beautiful family!!…Big time love and props…(^o^)/
