Jay-Z is regarded as one of the most legendary rappers in the Hip-Hop world. On top of his musical prowess, Hov is also a smart businessman and is worth over a billion dollars for good reason. He also realizes that people love to gamble. It seems he also had a career-defining moment recently.

Hova was among the names linked to a takeover of the NFL’s Denver Broncos in a lucrative $4 billion. This would have made Jay-Z the first-ever black owner of an NFL team.

Unfortunately, that ultimately did not happen as it was said that Jay-Z had no interest in investing so much money into the Denver Broncos in the first place. Instead, he decided to invest a lot of money into a smart-home company.

Right after LL Cool J got his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Jay-Z also followed suit. The legendary artist was inducted by former president Barack Obama and Dave Chappelle. It took place during a ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio this week.

Jay-Z’s introduction video was full of celebrities, including his wife Beyoncé, Chris Rock, Diddy, Samuel L. Jackson, LeBron James, and more. Dave Chappelle eventually took the stage and gave a wonderful speech as well.

“It is an incredible honor to induct this next man into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. But I need everybody in rock’n’roll to know, that even though you are honoring him, he is ours. He is hip-hop. For ever and ever, and a day,” he told the audience.

Jay-Z himself then took center stage and made sure to mention all the people who helped him make a name for himself in the industry. The rapper wanted to ensure he paid his dues to those who helped him out.

“Shout out to Dame [Dash]; I know we don’t see eye to eye, but I can never erase your accomplishments, and I appreciate you and thank you for that. And shout out to [Kareem] ‘Biggs’ [Burke]; he’s one of the most honorable people I’ve ever met. We created something that will probably never be duplicated.”

Jay-Z’s career and his contributions to the industry as a whole cannot be understated. They also cannot be replicated as he is a once-in-a-generation artist. It is sure fans all around the world were glad to see him being indicted.
