JAY-Z has just about accomplished everything in his 30+ year music career.

The 47-year old Brooklyn, New York native, born Shawn Carter, has received 21 Grammy Awards and sold over 100 million records worldwide.

All thirteen of his solo albums have at least been certified platinum.

So, it's fitting that he'll be presented with the Grammy Salute to Industry Icons Award, at the 2018 Pre-Grammy Gala. It will be presented to him on January 27, 2018. The night before the 60th annual Grammy Awards, at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel.

"We are absolutely thrilled and delighted to honor JAY-Z with this year’s GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Award. 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," said Neil Portnow, president/ceo of the Recording Academy. “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 Hov!
