Hot! NWA and Public Enemy nominated for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, hip hop came into its own. Two signature crews during this period of time were NWA, from Compton, and New York City’s Public Enemy. Both crews were among the most-controversial in hip hop, at the time. Often, the parallels between NWA and Public Enemy are overlooked.

However, NWA and Public Enemy, despite being drastically different in their styles, provided a voice for those who did not have one. At the same time, they showed the world how intelligent young black men could be. Chuck D proved his intelligence through his lyrics, Eazy-E proved his intelligence through his business savvy.

NWA and Public Enemy rose to fame during the same period of time. The group also fizzled during the same period. Years after their runs and planned comebacks, the groups are being nominated, at the same time, to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
