The rapper is among the Class of 2021 inductees
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced the inductees of its class of 2021 inductees yesterday (Wednesday). Jay-Z and LL Cool J are among the 13 inductees chosen for this year’s induction ceremony. To be eligible, artists are required to have released their first record 25 years prior to induction.
Last year, Whitney Houston and Notorious B.I.G were inducted into the hall of fame posthumously.
“This diverse class of talented Inductees reflects the Rock Hall’s ongoing commitment to honour artists whose music created the sound of youth culture”, said John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “It will make for an unforgettable live celebration of music in October at this year’s Induction Ceremony.” (SIC)
