Today, January 21, Americans across the country celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day, honoring the life of the Civil Rights icon.

To honor him, the music industry’s biggest hip-hop artists took to social media to share messages on this special day. Pharrell Williams shared on Twitter, “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. — Martin Luther King Jr. Honoring the doctor today #MLKDay” while Snoop Dogg simply posted a picture of King captioned with the prayer emoji. Check out the posts below which also includes the likes of Common, Swizz Beatz, Master P, Ja Rule, Big Boi, and more.
