this is just a disgrace, how could you'll attempt to let this kind of injustice take place in the music industry. this guy is not only then greatest writer, arranger, producer, performer in the last thirty years andn sold more music than most, unique in his way told it like it was, coming from humble beginnings like most of the black race and to be ignored in this manner is just plain messed up.

FYI, Rick James was NOT a rap artist. Don't know who yor thinking of? Rick James was a Motown artist best known for funk and r&b. He definitely is a legitimate candidate for the Rock Hall.

I'm guessing he's thinking of Slick Rick.

We need to get Rick James in there.He don't get the credit that he deserves.Can't no one get the party started like Rick James.

This man deserve this before prince. His first seven albums went gold or platinum or triple platinum. From 1978- 1983 no other R&B artis sold more records whats wrong with the Hall of fame.

Rick was a pioneer,a trendsetter.Just like anybody else he had his demons.But he made way for alot of groups.No one can deny Prince took some of his influences from Jimmy Hendrix,James Brown,and Rick James.Out of plain respect and as a tribute.MAKE RICK A LEGEND!
