JAY-Z HONORED BY DIDDY, BEYONCÉ, LEBRON JAMES & MORE IN ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME TRIBUTE

JAY-Z had the honor of being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in October alongside LL COOL J. To commemorate Hov’s achievement, The Roots’ Questlove brought together some of the biggest musicians, actors and comedians in the world to read lyrics from his immense catalog, with Skillz being tasked with picking and arranging all of the rhymes.

Among the huge names in the clip are Beyoncé, Common, DJ Khaled, Diddy, Regina King, Lenny Kravitz, DJ Premier, John Legend, Kevin Hart, Halle Berry, Aziz Ansari, Jamie Foxx, Chris Martin, Usher, Rick Ross, Rihanna, Pharrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Sheeran, DJ Clark Kent, Chris Rock, LeBron James, Jermaine Dupri, RZA, Alicia Keys, SZA, Tracee Ellis Ross and Idris Elba.

JAY-Z’s mom, Gloria Carter, also makes an appearance, with his daughter Blue Ivy closing out the video by reciting lyrics from 1998’s “Ride or Die.”
