N.W.A. Inducted Into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Gangsta rap legends, N.W.A. were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday night (April 8) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.



Kendrick Lamar was on hand to induct the group he referred to as “black superheroes” whose gritty lyrics took an “intimate look at what was happening in our communities.”

Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren, and Eazy-E‘s mother, Kathie Wright, took the stage to accept the well-deserved award.

Ice Cube took a moment to address the naysayers saying, “Are we rock and roll? Ya god damn right we’re rock and roll,” he stated emphatically. The 46-year-old also explained rock and roll to be about not conforming “to the people who came before you,” but instead, “creating your own path, in music and in life. That is rock and roll, and that is us.”

MC Ren opted to blast KISS front man Gene Simmons who said he was looking forward to the “death of rap” in a Rolling Stone interview.

Ren stated, “I want to say to Mr. Gene Simmons, hip-hop is here forever — get used to it.”
