Public Enemy Rapper Chuck D: “LL Cool J should get into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame before Tupac”





Only God can judge Tupac — and apparently Chuck D too.

Just a day after Tupac Shakur was named a nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Public Enemy rapper had a difference of opinion on his qualifications.

“Got forever love for PAC BUT there AIN’T a solo rap act that should get in the RRHOF before LL Cool J,” Chuck D tweeted Thursday. “I don’t care about what naysayers think.”

Shakur, who died after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, is considered one of the most influential rappers in history.

LL Cool J, meanwhile, has two Grammy Awards and has been nominated another seven times, but has never reached such critical acclaim.

He currently hosts “Lip Sync Battle” with Chrissy Teigen.

Chuck D tweeted Thursday that LL Cool J should have been nominated first.


Shakur is among nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, including Pearl Jam, Janet Jackson, Journey, Bad Brains, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, Jane’s Addiction, Joan Baez and Steppenwolf.

Ice Cube has already given his endorsement for the “Dear Mama” rapper.
