There has been a lot of debate as to whether Hip Hop belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. To us at NIHOF, we believe it does belong and with the past inductions of Grandmaster Flash and Run D.M.C. it is clear that the Rap question has been answered. Had we launched this site two years ago, Run D.M.C. would have made our top ten, but with that being said, the man who predates Run D.M.C. and The Beastie Boys (a top ten selection) will likely have a secure spot in our top twenty until his induction.
