Over the course of their illustrious careers, Janet Jackson and Tupac have left an un-erasable mark on both music and culture.
It’s little wonder then why the pair are both up for one of the most prestigious honors an artist can receive.
Ms. Jackson and ‘Poetic Justice’ co-star serve as two of the most notable names in consideration for the class of 2017 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Still, today’s announcement will no doubt be greeted with glee from the singer’s army of fans, who’ve been campaigning diligently for the honor.
For the late, great Tupac, it serves as his first time he’s been added to the conversation and proves timely given the upcoming biopic on his short but impactful life. Will his narrative play out ala N.W.A’s, who were inducted following the success of their movie?
But what is certain is that you can make your voice heard!
The general public will be given the chance to vote for who they believe deserves to receive a spot in the coveted Hall. Their picks will be tallied up to represent the “popular vote,” which will be factored in to the final decision. The latter of which will be established by the 800 historians, artists and industry insiders that make up the voting committee.
Inductees will be revealed in December.
