Former US presidential aspirant and ex-first lady Hillary Clinton has showered praise on rapper Jay Z while wishing him a happy birthday.
The legendary rapper celebrated turning half a century on Wednesday, December 4, having made a name for himself as one of the greatest rappers of all time.
Hillary took to her social media and declared the rapper an icon, describing him as someone who has worked hard for his achievements.
“An icon turns 50. Jay Z's story is as American a tale as they come. Full of poetry, hard work, and pushing for progress on issues he cares about,” Hillary wrote on her Instagram.
The Grammy award-winning artiste also gave his fans a birthday gift by adding all his tracks on streaming site Spotify after missing out for two years.
Jay also received praise and admiration from fellow rapper Drake, who once called Jay an influential figure in his life.
He captured himself on video while listening to Jay’s music in his house as he sang along.
Jay recently hit headlines after he sent his guests invitations for a charity event, accompanying the invite cards with a Rolex watch and a champagne bottle.
