After being presented with the Grammy for Best Rap Album by Ice Cube at last weekend’s Grammy Awards, Kendrick Lamar will reverse the roles. The Compton rapper is slated to induct his childhood heroes, N.W.A, into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 8.
“This means that the group’s mark is solidified,” Ice Cube said back when it was first announced that N.W.A were going to be inducted. “We got some of the most creative, talented people in N.W.A that’s ever been compiled in one group. It’s just exciting that the group as a whole gets recognized by the whole industry as Hall of Fame-worthy.”
Other inductees joining N.W.A in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year include: Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, Steve Miller and Bert Berns.
The 31st Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 8. HBO will be filming the event with a special broadcast scheduled for April 30.
