Rap icons Dr. Dre and Public Enemy will soon be able to add to their many accolades with possibly one of the most prestigious one of them all as they are set to be inducted into this years Grammy Hall of Fame. Alongside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame is an exclusive achievement as it honors timeless musical recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance.
If you’re none the wiser, Public Enemy are an American hip hop group most famously known for their politically charged music and active interest in the frustrations and troubles of the African American community. While never winning a Grammy themselves, they have had 5 nominations which includes “Fight The Power” – which is being honoured this year – and multiple platinum selling albums
Dr. Dre probably needs little introduction as the Hip-Hop producer has gone from a prominent member of NWA to a great music business mogul. His 1992 album The Chronic is set to be honoured as well.
They will both be joined by Jimi Hendrix, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, The Rolling Stones, Whitney Houston and several others. A full list of every single honoree can be found here.
