The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige is also getting one of the sidewalk monuments next year.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the Tony-winning Hip Hop musical Hamilton, is part of the ’18 class as well.
Friday and Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray will be joining Ice, Snoop, MJB, and Miranda on the Walk Of Fame.
Other celebrities being honored include Bernie Mac, Anthony Anderson, Taraji P. Henson, Zoe Saldana, Jack Black, Mark Hamill, Jennifer Lawrence, Niecy Nash, Shonda Rhimes, Steve Irwin, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
