The Rock & Roll Hall of fame nominees for 2016 are in… + a recap of Ice Cube on Sway In the Morning (discusses Hip-Hop Hollywood and more…)

It’s about that time for the 2016 Rock & Roll Hall to induct another nominee and so far, the choices are TOUGH.

From Janet Jackson to NWA to Chaka Khan, it’s gonna be a very difficule decision, as all of those names are credible. Of course the winners are chosen based off on fans votes (click the link below to cast your ballot) and the winner will be announced in December.

Chaka Khan is in the running for her 1984 single, “I Feel For You“. This will be the 4th year that NWA has been nominated, and the chances might be looking good considering their box office breaking film “Straight Outta Compton” is considered a must see by movie critics. Janet’s “All For You” and “If” has earned her a spot on this year’s roster and by good judgment.

Last year, Ice Cube stopped by Shade 45 to discuss the movie side of Hip-Hop as well as his top 3 favorite MC’s of all time. Check it out below.






Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
