Such a Special Day in Hip-Hop
Last December, it was reported that Tupac was eligible to be inducted into the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with Pearl Jam, Journey, and more classic musicians. The news sparked major controversy. Musicians from different genres chimed in, exclaiming that Pac isn’t worthy of the induction just yet.
Surprisingly, one of hip-hip’s own Chuck D took to social media to say that while he loves and respects Tupac, he thinks LL Cool J should have gotten the honor first. Well, their opinions didn’t matter because next month, Tupac Amaru Shakur will be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in Brooklyn. To make the event even more special, Pac’s old friend and former collaborator will be paying tribute.
