Public Enemy and N.W.A. are among a list of first-time nominees for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.


Alongside Rush and Deep Purple, this is the first time for both pioneering hip-hop acts to be recognized for the Hall, who will also join returnees Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Kraftwerk, who will all compete for entry.


There are only two other hip-hop acts inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over it’s thirty-year history, The Beastie Boys, who were inducted in 2011, and Run DMC, inducted in 2009. Notably, Run DMC are also responsible for desecrating the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their 1985 for “King Of Rock”, while Larry “Bud” Melman stood by idly and did nothing. Nothing.


On April 18th, a panel of 600 artists, music historians and members of the industry will choose 2013′s inductees, in Los Angeles.
