Jermaine Dupri Is Making Some Major History
Jermaine Dupri is on his way to earning a huge reward, both for himself and for the hip-hop community as a whole.
According to Billboard, Dupri is going to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year. Along with him, other acts including John Mellencamp, Kool & the Gang, Alan Jackson, and Bill Anderson will also be honored. Jermaine is now going to become only the second rapper in history to receive the honor, which shows him following in the footsteps of his friend and former collaborator Jay Z.
The mogul shared the news on social media Tuesday, and he’s clearly very excited about the honor. “Look at god, look at god, look at god. Yo, I was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame! I don’t know what else to say….” He exclaimed in the video.
The Songwriters Hall of Fame’s 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner is set to be held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel on June 14.
