About time! Tupac has been nominated for the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, according to the Huffington Post.
He will be just the sixth hip-hop artist to be inducted, joining Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and N.W.A, making him the first SOLO artist to get the nomination nod.
The list also includes Pearl Jam, Joan Baez, and four others will be honored. This was Tupac’s first year of eligibility to be inducted.
“In order to be eligible, artists and bands “must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination,” according to The Hall of Fame’s rules. His first single, “Brenda’s Got a Baby,” debuted in Oct. 1991.”
The ceremony will be held in Brooklyn on April 7th. Is it about time that Hip-Hop creates its OWN Hall Of Fame? Because over the next 20 years, there will be PLENTY of artist that deserve this nod, and maybe its time to consider a H.O.F in New York? Just a thought, but regardless, congrats PAC!!!!
