Kendrick Lamar is set to induct his hometown heroes N.W.A into this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The prestigious honor, bestowed upon the iconic and legendary Compton group marks a special 12 months that saw their life story presented on the big screen in Straight Outta Compton. The news of the establishment acknowledgement of N.W.A comes shortly after furore around the fact that none of the cast were invited to this year’s Academy Awards, let alone nominated. “It means a lot of things. It means that the group’s mark is kind of solidified. It’s all legitimized in a way because the whole music industry has to honor the group in a way” explained group co-founder Ice Cube. “Everyone now at this point, no matter how you feel about us, understands what the group actually did and what it means to modern music.”
