The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame revealed the Class of 2019 and rapper LL Cool J has been left out in the cold for the 5th time!
LL has been nominated an impressive five times but is yet to actually make it past the nomination stage.
Hip-Hop artists do not fare well as far as inductions go. To date, only a few have been inducted: Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, N.W.A, Tupac Shakur and Run-DMC.
But there is some good news, Janet Jackson was among those who will be inducted in the Class of 2019. Alongside Jackson, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Roxy Music and the Zombies will also be inducted.
Kraftwerk, Todd Rundgren and John Prine, Devo, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and MC5 were also rejected.
The 34th annual Rock Hall induction ceremony takes place on Mar. 29 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
