The late and great Tupac has been nominated into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for 2017, the list was released yesterday and if he gets inducted Tupac will be the first solo hip-hop artist to join the institution.
The rock hall foundation's nominating committee has finally decided to consider rap artists as a worthy consideration.
Five other rap acts are already in the hall of fame: N.W.A (inducted 2016); Public Enemy (2013); Beastie Boys (2012); Run DMC (2009), Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five (2007). Hopefully the trend continues.
