Jay Z was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame along with the likes of Swedish songwriter and producer Max Martin, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Motown founder Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and three members of the band Chicago.

Meanwhile, Jay Z is currently thought to be recording a new album.
