CRAZY COOL GROOVY CONGRATULATIONS goes out to DR. DRE, ICE CUBE, MC REN, DJ YELLA, and the late EAZY-E for on Friday, April 8, at the BARCLAYS CENTER in BROOKLYN, NY, the entire HIP HOP COMMUNITY got a big boost when legendary COMPTON, CA-born-and-based Hip Hop group N.W.A. was officially inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL Of FAME!!!
Here are some highlights from the acceptance speeches:
"I want to say to Mr. Gene Simmons that hip-hop is here forever. We're supposed to be here." While most of the Barclays Center responded with cheers, a few sour boos could be heard throughout the venue, either in protest to hip-hop or in Simmons' defense.
The guys were joined onstage by KATHIE WRIGHT, mother of the late ERIC "EAZY-E" WRIGHT, who accepted his award.
