Jay-Z to Receive Grammy Salute to Industry Icons Award

Well deserved.

Jay-Z will be receiving the Grammy Salute to Industry Icons Award at the 2018 Grammy Awards. There is no one more deserving of this great honor for a man who has transformed the industry.

HOV will be honored at the pre-Grammy gala on January 27th, 2018. Clive Davis will be presenting him with the award. He has won numerous Grammy awards oner the years, and this will serve as recognition of his “significant contributions to the music industry and his numerous philanthropic endeavors.”

“We are absolutely thrilled and delighted to honor JAY-Z with this year’s GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Award,” said President/CEO of the Recording Academy Neil Portnow. “His contributions as an industry trailblazer and music visionary only begin to touch on the tremendous impact he’s made both in entertainment and beyond. JAY-Z also embodies the vibrant spirit of New York City and we couldn’t imagine a more fitting honoree as we return to Manhattan for this year’s GRAMMY Awards.”

Congrats to Mr. Carter!
