The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, has nominated the late Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G to for this year’s class. Run-DMC, Public Enemy, Tupac, the Beastie Boys and others have been inducted into the Hall Of Fame in years past.
Biggie Smalls is in the company of other artists including Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Dave Matthews Band, Kraftwerk, and more. The announcement for those persons being inducted will take place in January 2020.
As a side note, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame has people running the institution who probably know very little about any of the genres of music they claim to represent. The author of this article has first-hand experience dealing with them. They’re more or less the type of people, regardless of their race, who seem to prefer to eat cheese & crackers while socializing over a bottle of wine than the type of people who know anything about Led Zeppelin or Biggie Smalls, let alone Biggie’s childhood struggles.
We’ll have more details on this matter as they become available.
