Janet Jackson, Pearl Jam, Chaka Khan, Chic, Jane’s Addiction, and Joan Baez are also nominated.
If 2Pac is chosen as a member of the ’17 Class, he would join N.W.A, Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, and Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five as the only Hip Hop acts to be enshrined in the Hall.
