The 2018 Songwriters Hall of Fame class will include Jermaine Dupri who will become the second hip-hop artiste inducted into the prestigious organisation.
Dupri's induction comes a year after Jay-Z became the first rapper to make it into the Hall.
Dupri has co-written number one hits like Mariah Carey's We Belong Together and Always Be My Baby, Usher's Burn and Monica's The First Night.
He has released his own hip-hop albums and became a popular songwriter and producer in Atlanta when he launched the record label So So Def, building careers for Jagged Edge, Kriss Kross, Bow Wow, Xscape and more.
The Songwriters Hall of Fame's 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner will be held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel.
