Jay-Z Inducted Into Rock Hall Of Fame

 After Dave Chappelle inducted Jay-Z into the Rock in Roll Hall of Fame, he spoke in front of the audience.

During, he said, “Thank you, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, for this incredible honor. And you know, growing up, we didn’t think we could be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. We were told that hip-hop was a fad. Much like punk rock, it gave us this anticulture, this subgenre, and there were heroes in it.” At one point, he also said all the praise he received was “trying to make me cry in front of all these white people.” In his speech, which was the longest of the night, he also talked about his childhood, about writing his first rap, and he thanked everyone that helped him along the way.
