Today, we honor rappers and singers J. Cole, Tupac Shakur, and Chance the Rapper, pioneers of rap music. J.Cole wrote the album Four Your Eyes Only, which takes the listener on a rigorous journey describing what it’s like to be a black man growing up in the ghetto. Tupac Shakur was an American rapper and actor who came to embody the 1990s gangsta-rap aesthetic and in death became an icon, symbolizing noble struggle. He sold 75 million albums to date, making him one of the top-selling artists of all time.

Chance the Rapper is an American rapper, singer, philanthropist, record producer and actor. Chance released his third mixtape Coloring Book to critical acclaim. It earned him three Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Album. All three of these men have done tremendous work composing music that everyone can listen to and enjoy.
