PRESIDENT OBAMA INDUCTS ABSENT JAY Z INTO SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME VIA VIDEO!

Jay Z, whose wife Beyonce is expecting twins soon, was absent from the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame, where he was inducted by a charismatic longtime fan: former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Obama, appearing in a taped video, told the audience Thursday that he’s been listening to Jay Z since he was a “young and hungry state senator” and compared himself to the New York rapper.
Jay Z became the first rapper inducted into the prestigious organization and was the first hip-hop act nominated for the honor.

The icon, who rarely tweets, posted multiple messages on Twitter around the time the ceremony took place, naming rappers who he admires, from veterans like Rakim and Nas to contemporaries such as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.
