Today's the big day!
New York, NY – The irony that "the Money is not a Thang" creators of JAY-Z and Jermaine Dupri are the first two rappers to be inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame is not lost on the so so Def founder and CEO.
"I think that [the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame] has not seen people like me, I have a chance to break the mold and make people really realize that rappers really write the letter and understand and it is not just what you thought it was before," JD, explains during an interview with the TIDE.
"And the fact that JAY-Z didn't get to go last year, so I'm really the person who is going to walk there with swag to hold down and represent for the Hip Hop world," he said with a laugh.

It has been a long time coming for the Rap&B, the music mogul, whose so so Def imprint in the middle of a 25-year celebration. During February of 2018 interview with HipHopDX, Dupri, 45, prepared how to face with JAY-Z in the above-mentioned baller anthem helped to define his pen game.
"You know that JAY-Z, one person that really put that all life in the rap, to recognize my rap and say," You went to hit on this song.' And it was crazy because I've seen someone recently say that JAY-Z wrote my rap, and he was like, "Yeah, your rap is dope ... That is the cause of JAY-Z wrote'. Then, it's like the rap only because some people think that, I have heard people say that JAY-Z does not kill his own song. So, people don't feel like what I wrote, but that is one of the raps that I feel like, you know, the rhythmic style, the flow, the bars and all of that was up to par with what he was saying. It might not have been as good as JAY-Z, but it was certainly good enough for that song and what he was saying," he recalled.
