It’s official: Kendrick Lamar is set to induct the legendary West Coast group, N.W.A. into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 8.
It’s been known for some time that N.W.A. would be recognized for their legendary and controversial career. And considering K. Dot’s countless references to the group shaping his own career (including dedicating one of his Grammy wins to Ice Cube and the rest of the members), there was a lot of speculation on the “Alright” rapper’s involvement in this pivotal moment. And now the Hall of Fame announced that Kendrick would be a special guest at the induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
N.W.A. is also rumored to be performing at the ceremony, so it may not be out of the question to ask for a joint performance from the group and Kendrick Lamar. Stay tuned, the Hall of Fame induction will kick off in the spring. You can purchase tickets here.
