(GEMS RADIO)–On Wednesday, February 2nd, Eminem and A Tribe Called Quest were listed among the nominees in the Hip Hop act for the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The two legendary hip-hop artists are first-timers in this year’s Rock Hall.

Hall of Fame’s Social Media Pages

Others who have been named alongside the two include Lionel Richie, Dolly Parton, Beck, Rage Against the Machine, Dionne Warwick, Fela Kuti, Duran Duran, Kate Bush, Pat Benatar, Carly Simon, Judas Priest, MC5, Pat Benatar, Eurythmics, Devo and New York Dolls.

In a statement on Rock Hall’s social media pages, John Sykes, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Chairman, said, “This year’s ballot recognizes a diverse group of incredible artists, each who has had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture. Their music not only moved generations but also influenced the sound of countless artists that followed.”

Voting Begins

Voting has already started, and fans can participate in casting “fan ballots,” which will get tallied in a pool of more than 1,000 artists, journalists, historians, and music industry professionals. Winners will be announced in May and indicted officially sometime later.

According to the Hall of Fame rules, each artist’s first album must have been released at least 25 years ago. Having released ‘Infinite,’ his first full-length project in 1996, Eminem is the only nominee to make it in his first year of eligibility.

On the other hand, A Tribe Called Quest released their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm in 1990. The album had tracks like “Can I Kick It” and “Bonita Applebum.”

A Growing List Of Hall Of Famers

Last year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Jay Z and LL cool J. The two joined a long list of hall of famers in the Hip Hop categories, including Grandmaster Flash, Beastie Boys, N.W.A, The Notorious B.I.G, 2pac, and Public Enemy
