Tupac and Janet Jackson nominated for the rock and roll fame


Tupac could be the next rap superstar to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Ohio museum announced its 2017 nominees on Tuesday, and Tupac Shakur leads the list alongside Janet Jackson, Pearl Jam, and Depeche Mode.

If Tupac earns enough votes to be inducted, he’d be the sixth hip-hop artist to be honored in the Rock Hall, following in the footsteps of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run-D.M.C., Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, and N.W.A. He would also become the first solo rapper in the Hall of Fame.                                          

Artists become eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after they release their first album or single.

The Rock Hall will hold its induction ceremony next April at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
