Hip-Hop Groups Public Enemy, N.W.A. Nominated For 2013 Rock Hall Of Fame

(AllHipHop News) Groundbreaking Hip-Hop acts Public Enemy and N.W.A. are the latest groups to be nominated for possible induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2013.

Public Enemy and N.W.A. are among the 13 groups to be nominated for the 28th annual induction ceremony, which will take place next year in Los Angeles.

In addition to Public Enemy and N.W.A., groups like Heart, Albert King, Kraftwerk, Deep Purple, The Marvelettes, and The Meters are also up for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.

“The definition of ‘rock and roll’ means different things to different people, but as broad as the classifications may be, they all share a common love of the music,” said Joel Peresman, President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “This year we again proudly put forth a fantastic array of groups and artists that span the entire genre that is ‘rock and roll’.”

In order in order to be nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, each act or artist must have released their first single, or album at least 25 years ago.

Public Enemy’s first release was Yo! Bum Rush the Show, while N.W.A.’s first album was N.W.A. and the Posse, two groundbreaking albums that were released in 1987.

The inductees will ultimately be determined by an international voting body, made up of music historians, executives and other professionals related to the field.

The 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Thursday, April 18, 2013.
