Shawn Corey Carter, better known as Jay-Z, became the most-nominated artist in Grammy history after receiving his 83rd Grammy nomination on Tuesday.

Despite not he releasing an album of his own, the 51-year-old rapper and billionaire was nominated for his contributions to Kanye West’s album “Donda” and DMX’s song “Bath Salts.” 

Jay-Z has now eclipsed producer Quincy Jones, who was previously tied with the rapper 80 nominations.

Shawn has lined up the mileage with his wife Beyonce, who broke the record for most Grammy wins with her 28th accolades at last year’s ceremony.

The Knowles-Cater family’s Grammy success has been extended their children, with the oldest daughter, Blue Ivy, winning her first Grammy at the age of nine, making her one of the youngest persons ever to do so. 

Paul McCartney is the second most nominated artist in Grammy history, with 81 nominations.
