Eric B. & Rakim Nominated For Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

 

Eric B. & Rakim have been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rakim is revered in the hip-hop community for his complex rhymes and delivery. He and dj Eric B. enjoyed huge success in the late 80's and early 90's with hits like "Eric B Is President," "I Aint No Joke," "Juice (Know the Ledge)" and "Microphone Fiend."

They recorded four albums together before Rakim went solo.

This is the first nomination for the duo.

Other nominess include War, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N' Roses, The Beastie Boys, the Cure, Heart, the Spinners and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, Donovan, Laura Nyro, Freddie King and The Small Faces/The Faces.

The New York Times broke down the method used to pick the nominees.

The nominees were chosen by 40 critics and musicologists who serve on the hall’s nominating committee. The ballots will now be sent to a larger group of 500 critics, musicians and industry professionals who vote on them. Every year, the hall inducts at least five artists or groups from the list. The choices are announced in late November and a ceremony will be held to honor the inductees on April 14.
