Obama honors Jay Z during Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony

Meanwhile, former USA president Barack Obama filmed a video introduction ahead of Jay Z's award presentation to Jon Platt, the boss of Warner/Chappell Music, who accepted the award on the rapper's behalf, with many speculating that he may have revealed the gender of the twins in his message. "So we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it's a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well".

Minaj thanked Jay for paving the way for rappers: "Thank you for giving us the blueprint". Special awards were also given to publishing executive Caroline Bienstock, composer Alan Menken - who accepted the organization's highest honor, the Johnny Mercer Award - sing-rapper Pitbull - who accepted the Global Ambassador Award - and Ed Sheeran.

As a result, Jay Z took to Twitter to gush about the rappers during his life who have inspired him - proof that fatherhood is making him just that bit soppy.

Along with Jay Z, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Robert Lamm, James Pankow, Max Martin and Peter Cetera of "Chicago" were inducted as the class of 2017.

Obama closed his remarks by recalling something "that Jay once said that struck me" about not changing and staying true to himself. However, Jay-Z was nowhere to be seen and neither was Queen Bey.

After writing over 10 tweets, which included names of various rappers and artists, he also shouted out the former POTUS for his touching intro.

In fact, Jay Z and Beyoncé visited the White House several times during the Obama administration. "I think it's just monumental that a brother's gonna get this".
