NWA and Public Enemy on 2013 Rock Hall Nominee List

source: LATimes

Inducting N.W.A  or Public Enemy, or both, would boost hip-hop’s representation at the Hall. To date, the Beastie Boys, Run D.M.C. and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five are the only rap acts to be inducted. Compton’s N.W.A is the first West Coast rap act to be nominated.  Eligibility requirements state that an act’s first recording must have been at least 25 years ago, which puts the eligibity for consideration this year at 1987.
