With all due respect to Rock purists, there really is little doubt that at present Jay-Z is the top contender of the 2020 list of Hall of Fame candidates.  The man with many monikers has been one of the most dominate Rap artists of the past ten years and he is beloved by critics, the mainstream, and the streets. 

His flow style of Rapping is as praised as it is duplicated.  It appears that everything that Jay-Z touches turns to gold, whether it is musically, personally or in the world of business.  When he wasn’t doing his own album, he was a featured artist on many other hits.  For 20 years and counting, the former Sean Carter has been everywhere, and has been the soundtrack for many people’s lives.  How does he not just walk in to the Hall?

The Bullet Points

  • Eligible Since: Wednesday, 01 January 2020
  • Country of Origin: U.S.A. (New York City, NY)
  • Why they will get in: Jay-Z meets every criterion.  He has the influence, the popularity and the durability.
  • Why they won't get in: He will.  The only question is how quick it will happen.
  • Essential Albums:

    Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life (1998)

    The Blueprint (2001)

    The Black Album (2003)

    Watch the Throne (2011)
  • Our Five Favorite Songs as Chosen by Each Member of the NIHOF Committee:

    Dead Presidents (From Dig Your Own Hole, 1997)

    Can I Get a … (From Dig Your Own Hole, 1997)

    Big Pimpin’ (From Dig Your Own Hole, 1997)

    IZZO (H.O.V.A.) (From Surrender, 1999)

    99 Problems (From Push the Button, 2005)

Should Jay-Z be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in! - 28%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 10.6%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 4.5%
No opinion. - 0.8%
No way! - 56.1%

Rap is crap. Most "musicless" thing ever created. It is not rock and roll. No rapper deserves to be inducted into the RRHF. Even this guy.
