See Kendrick Lamar’s NWA Tribute at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction
Nineties rap group N.W.A. received the prestigious gesture of being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Friday April 8th. They were given quite the riveting introduction by a longtime fan of theirs, Grammy award winning rapper Kendrick Lamar who interviewed the group for Billboard magazine summer 2015. Controversy surrounded the group’s selection for the hall of fame by rocker Gene Simmons who didn’t fit the bill, but that was something Kendrick was proud of and highlighted in his introduction speech for the group.
“The fact that a famous group can look just like one of us and dress like one of us, talk like one of us, proved to every single kid in the ghetto that you can be successful,” the Alright rapper said.
He even gave a shoutout to the group’s late member Eazy-E. “He was a true mastermind, his persona was unmatched, his high pitched tone spoke to nations across the globe,” he said. “He’s the reason I’m proud to say I’m from Compton.”
Kendrick said that N.W.A> redefined what it meant to be a gangster and that it didn’t necessarily come with the negative connotations many tend to give it.
He was a true mastermind, his persona was unmatched, his high pitched tone spoke to nations across the globe,” he said. “He’s the reason I’m proud to say I’m from Compton.”
