The 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class has been announced and The Notorious B.I.G. is the latest rapper to be inducted into the Hall.
The legendary rapper, who was recently honored with murals in Brooklyn, NY., will be immortalized alongside with the late Whitney Houston, Tupac Shakur, Public Enemy, Run-DMC and N.W.A.
In order to be nominated for the honor, artists must have released an album before 1994, making the 25-year minimum release date requirement. B.I.G.’s classic 1994 album, Ready to Die, makes him eligible for induction.
The 35th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on May 2 at Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio. The event will be broadcast live for the first time on HBO at 8 p.m. ET. Performances and special guests will be announced at a later date.
Congratulations to The Notorious B.I.G. on his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
