The 44-year-old rapper will join the likes of Mike Tyson and Arnold Schwarzenegger as he becomes the first musician to join the wrestling elite at the honourary ceremony held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on April 2, reported Female First.

Taking to his Twitter account, he said, "real recognise real. thank you @WWE universe for the honor #HOF #WWE #wrestlemania (sic)."

The "Young, Wild & Free" hitmaker's passion may lie in music but he's also been heavily involved in wrestling over the years as he guest-hosted "Raw" in 2009 and served as Master of Ceremonies for a match at "WrestleMania XXIV".

He also joined Hulk Hogan in the ring as he helped throw Curtis Axel over the top rope at the go-home show last year.
