Last year it was Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five that were the first Hip-Hop inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this year those Hollis boys Run DMC are in the running for the second nod to join the likes of Curtis Mayfield, the late Isaac Hayes, Prince and Michael Jackson in the legendary who’s who in music collective.
Run DMC were the first Hip-Hop act to go both gold and platinum with their various albums and also the first to be nominated for a Grammy. Also up with a chance of being nominated is Bobby Womack, 70′s disco band Chic and rock band Metallica. The show will be held on April 4th in Cleveland, where the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located.
