A big congrats is in order to The Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston and Chaka Khan! These legendary artists were nominated for induction into 2020’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In order to be considered for this nomination, any artist must have put out an album anytime before 1994. Biggie’s 1994 album Ready to Die makes him eligible for the prestigious title.
If any of these artists win the induction, they will be among some of the best to ever do it. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, N.W.A., and Tupac Shakur are just some of the artists that have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in recent years. If Biggie specifically wins this induction, he will become the seventh hip-hop act and second solo artist to earn the honorary award.
Starting October 15th, fans will be able to vote for their favorite artists by typing their name into Google followed by the word “Vote”. Google also offers an alternative if you search “Rock Hall Fan Vote,” it will lead you to the ballot casting site. The 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place May 2020 and fans will have until January 2020 to cast their votes.
