Jay Z Skips Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards Amid Rumors About Beyoncé in Labor

Jay Z missed out on celebrating a milestone for the arrival of his twins.

Amid speculations that Beyoncé is in labor, the rapper skipped his appearance at the 48th Annual Songwriters Hall Of Fame Induction and Awards in New York City, where he was set to accept the honor of being the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall.

Instead of showing up at the star-studded event, the 47-year-old opted to share a lengthy Twitter message thanking more than 50 rappers for their contributions to the music industry.

“Thank you to all the people that have inspired me,” he tweeted Thursday night. “Rakim KANE KRS chuck cube Jaz Em Andre Nas big PAC cole kendrick chance jayE…wait, Lauryn Nicki lite latifah common ye drake and meek.

“F**k haa. Naw for real. Pastor Jeezy my partner. Okay I’m done. I’m deleting this app in the morning. S**t is impossible to get right. I promise I’m not drunk,” he added. “Lord Pusha.

Hova also shared a video from former President Barack Obama giving shout out to all the honorees of the night. “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters although he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up,” the ex-Commander-in-Chief said. “Jay you have been inspiring in making me want to be active in my retirement just like you’ve been in yours.”

However, Jay wasn’t the only one staying put in the Los Angeles area for the arrival of the twins. Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles, was recently spotted spending the day at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. — which is just a less than an hour drive away from the hospital where the “Hold Up” singer is rumored to be staying.

Meanwhile, Solange and her husband, Alan Ferguson, were seen out and about in West Hollywood. The couple grabbed a bite to eat before taking a small stroll around the block.

It looks like we’re not the only ones on Bey watch these days!
