Last month marked 25 years since The Notorious B.I.G. released his debut album, Ready To Die. This morning, the impact of Biggie Smalls’ short-but-amazing career is reinforced with a nomination into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. The Brooklyn, New Yorker born Christopher Wallace is in a nomination class that also includes Whitney Houston, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Kraftwerk, Thin Lizzy, Nine Inch Nails, The Doobie Brothers, T-Rex, Soundgarden, The Dave Matthews Band, Motorhead, Pat Benatar, Depeche Mode, The MC 5, Judas Priest, and Todd Rundgren.
Including fan participation, top vote-getters will be announced in January of 2020. The ensuing induction ceremony takes place May 20 at Cleveland, Ohio’s Public Auditorium.
