    She’s one of the greatest song writers of all time. She should’ve been inducted her first nomination.

    SHOF will definitely induct The Neptune’s, OutKast as well as the hall has been on the hip hop vibe since 2017. I really think that Mariah has a strong bid for 2020 being that it will also make her 30th anniversary of her debut album and era. So the third time will be the charm. But to all the nominees congratulations on this honor and hopefully an induction.

    She rode Whitney Houston song writers back ….then just pushed Diane out the way…..all song based on song Whitney …and she still can’t sing with Whitney Houston…..f*** Mariah Carey…y’all keep kissing her black ass….but when Whitney voice was sore you laughed at her….having sore throat….f*** Mariah Carey….so

    Did you snort coke with Whitney, since you claim she was her. “friend”….
