It also missed out kraftwerk, who laid the ground for most the beats used in hip hop.

Yeah, no kidding, the list was apparently compiled by "Stereo Williams." If I were Stereo Williams, I wouldn't be so open as to provide a link to my blog next to my name if I made such glaring omissions...

Here's hoping for some sympathy votes this coming election.

He should be inducted before any more 80s-90s Rap acts are inducted. Same goes for the Last Poets.

Gil-Scot Heron should be on the lsit of snubs, not in this list - he is of the rock era - his spoken word numbers were proto-rap. He is probably the biggest snub!
