Jaden Smith, Juice WRLD, Cardi B and Gunna have been announced as Spotify’s RapCaviar Pantheon Class of 2019.

Described as “four cultural disruptors who are making an undeniable impact on hip-hop,” the inductees are artists who personify the culture today with Cardi B making history as the first solo female rapper to win Best Rap Album, Juice WRLD blurring the lines that define hip-hop, Gunna becoming one of the genre’s most respected newcomers and Jaden Smith defying convention with his artistry.

The four will be honored in a fashion similar to the ancient Greeks—with elaborate life-sized sculptures to be displayed at the Brooklyn Museum in New York from April 3-7.

Spotify’s RapCaviar Pantheon was launched in 2017 and honored SZA, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin as its inaugural inductees.

In related news, Cardi B and Travis Scott are headlining JAY-Z’S Made in America music festival.
