A few months after the nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2016 were announced, N.W.A has been confirmed as an inductee into the prestigious institution, alongside Chicago, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick and Steve Miller.

27 years after their debut album, Straight Outta Compton, rocked the nation and changed both Hip-Hop and Pop music forever, F. Gary Gray directed young actors like Jason Mitchell, Ice Cube‘s son O’Shea Jackson and more in Straight Outta Compton, a biopic commemorating N.W.A’s rise to prominence that shattered box office expectations. It was a prompt reminder of what the group stood for and how far their impact had reached, and Dr. Dre alluded to that in his comments to Rolling Stone following this morning’s announcement.


When we started N.W.A, I couldn’t have imagined this. I never thought the type of music we were making would receive such a high accolade. I have always done what I love to do, so to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is unreal. I am humbled to be included in such an amazing group of great artists.

The official induction will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on April 8.
