Organizers of 2017's Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Inductees have confirmed that Tupac will be inducted at next year's ceremony. This was his first year as a qualified nominee, as he released his album 2Pacalypse Now 25 years ago.
The inauguration of these artists into the coveted Hall of Fame will be on April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. An edited version of the ceremony is slated to be on HBO, as well as a broadcast of the recording via Sirius XM Radio.
Hip-Hop has only recently begun to get recognition at this Hall of Fame. Last year NWA was inducted with Kendrick Lamar introducing the LA legends.
