Jay Z made history last night and no it did not have to do with the twins.

Jay Z is the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  Although he wasn't present for the ceremony (people are speculating it's because Beyonce's in labor) he did name a bunch of rappers and artists that have inspired him both past and present.  A matter of fact he tweeted the list out.  90 artists to be exact which adds up to about 13 Tweets.  Believe it or not President Barack Obama made his list AND Obama actually shouted out Jay Z in a speech he made to the Hall Of Famers.  There is definitely a bro-mance there for sure.  Check out the video below.
