|Jay Z入选创作人名人堂 成说唱界第一人|

美国说唱音乐人Jay-Z入选创作人名人堂，成为历史上第一位获得这一荣誉的说唱歌手。Chic乐队的尼尔?罗杰斯（Nile Rodgers）通过CBS电视台的《This Morning》节目公布了这一消息。他称，“Jay-Z以说唱音乐的形式发行了很多受欢迎的唱片，他的音乐影响很大，改变了很多人听音乐的方式，甚至改变了我们享受快乐的方式。”
Jay-Z has several reasons to be happy right now.
Less than a month after it was announced he and his wife Beyonce are expecting twins - he is to receive a top songwriting honour.
Jay-Z is to become the first rapper ever inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in the US.
A handful of artists who are considered to have "enriched the world's culture" with their songwriting and music are selected for induction every year.
Joining the hall of fame is a huge deal - previous inductees include Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson.
But no rapper has ever made the cut before.
Jay-Z will be inducted as part of the hall's class of 2017 alongside Max Martin, who has written songs for Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande.
Other inductees this year will include Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The duo have written and produced number one singles for Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and Usher, among many others.
Songwriters are eligible for induction after writing hit tracks for at least 20 years.
This explains why Jay-Z is being inducted now - as he recently passed the 20th anniversary of his debut album Reasonable Doubt, released in 1996.
Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers, who was one of last year's inductees, said Jay-Z had "changed the way we listen to music".
Madonna and George Michael were both nominated this year as well but weren't chosen this time.
Bonus：巅峰对决——Jay-Z vs 阿姆（Eminem）
