Ain’t no lie in that man’s voice.

But this is what happens when Black artists try to thrive in white spaces. Although I don’t have an exact idea of the ethnicities of the people voting on who gets inducted, I do know that Tribe is trying to be inducted into something that was not created for them. It’s called the “Rock & Roll Hall of Fame” for a reason.


It wasn’t created to get the most celebrated and best artists in hip-hop. So while the rap community should be disappointed, we shouldn’t be shocked when this body of voters doesn’t recognize one of hip-hop’s legendary entities.
