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

Known as one of America’s greatest activists of all-time, King protested admirably against racism, the Vietnam War and was a true leader in the Civil Rights movement, having given some of the most iconic speeches that are still remembered today along the way.

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.

In related news, Cardi B apologized to Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter over comedy skit.
