When it was announced last year that NWA would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, hip-hop fans worldwide rejoiced. One of the most influential rap groups in music history was fianally getting recognized by the music industry in a big way.
Now, to make things even better, Lamar will induct the group into the Hall of Fame, the cherry on top of what’s been a stellar year for Lamar who’s admitted that NWA had a huge influence on his music.
“When I think of N.W.A, it wasn’t even music to me, it was a real lifestyle. Brothas from my neighborhood that made it out.”
The ceremony will take place April 8th at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn.
