As expected, Tupac will soon officially be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
This is certainly no small feat, however, as the legendary emcee becomes the first solo hip-hop act to be awarded the honor.
Pac joins the likes of hip-hop greats Run DMC, Public Enemy, N.W.A., Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and The Beastie Boys, who have all also been enshrined as Rock and Roll royalty.
YOUR CLASS OF 2017 INDUCTEES ARE:
• Joan Baez
• Electric Light Orchestra
• Pearl Jam
• Tupac Shakur
Award for Musical Excellence:
• Nile Rodgers
The 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for the third time.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Ceremony will again have its television premiere on HBO, and a radio broadcast on SiriusXM.
Broadcast details will be announced in early 2017.
Artists become eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after their first release.
