This is not the Rap hall of fame, its the rock and roll hall of fame. He wont get in.

Grandmaster Flash. That is all.

Chizze dizzel, dog!!! Snoop should be inducted simply to give Bill OReilly a coronary. So should Ludacris!!

I'm sick of this. It's the ROCK & ROLL Hall of Fame. If you want to honour rappers, that's fine but do it somewhere else because you insult the gifted musicians who created the Rock & Roll genre and who would certainly not wish to be listed alongside members of a completely different kind of music.

I think if you look real hard theres a "2-bit thug" hall of fame somewhere...

whether you like it or not, rap is the most popular music genre today. it would have never gotten there without snoop dogg. it is the rock and roll hall of fame, but rappers were strongly influenced by rock. he is a talented musician, and when people list the five greatest mc's, he is always on the list. he has been going strong for over 17-18 years. also,if its the rock and roll hall of fame, why is grandmaster flash in? why is hank wiliams in? why is madonna getting inducted? why is smokey robinson in? why are sly and the family stone in? i could go on and on

Actually, I believe country is and has been the most popular genre of music worldwide for some time.

It's called the ROCK AND ROLL hall of fame. Snoop Dog is a good rapper but why? If they were going to put someone who raps in the rock and roll hall of fame it would probably be 2Pac.

major influence around the time when he was rapping with dre. now a days mediocre.

where's nate dogg, pioneer of g funk

One noteworthy album in the past 20 years.Hardly hall of fame worthy.Ever seen one of his live shows?Not recomended.They're terrible he doesn't even know the lyrics to most of his songs.It's awful.

Actually William on Thursday, Hip-Hop Is The Most Popular Genre In The World So Get Over It And Get Used To It!!!

Posted by NickDogg on Tuesday, 02.10.09 @ 14:00pm

NickDogg....hate to be the bearer of bad news, but William's statement about country is actually pretty accurate, and worldwide rock is probably a pretty close second. You're talking about a pretty big-assed world here...

Really, Gitarzan? I would never have thought so. I thought that Nashville pop (what passes for country despite having absolutely no rural feel to it whatsoever) was mostly an American phenomenom. When I went to Germany, one of my friends was a country music fan, and was trying to explain to the German students what country music is, and they had no clue. Course, that was 10 years ago. But I'd have thought electronica was the most popular style worldwide. Dance in particular.

I know in the U.S. the most programmed format in commercial radio is Adult Contemporary (Celine Dion type crap) with country as a close second, but that's chiefly because our baby boomers are getting older and as a trend, prefer the lighter stuff.

I know that I'd read that somewhere recently, just can't remember where. In that article, I read that besides the U.S., it's really big in Canada, Australia, and South America. I can't remember what the article based it's findings on, but I was surprised to read that as well. It wouldn't have been the genre I envisioned...I would have to go along with you, for that matter...

Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 02.10.09 @ 18:31pm

It was probably an issue of "Country Music Magazine"...LOL. Not that they'd toot their own horn or anything like that...!!!

Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 02.10.09 @ 18:33pm

I guess I'm being too Euro-centric. Still, it's pretty surprising.

Bo Jangels, What the hell is wrong with you? Seek a therapist, thanks.

I actually like Snoop Dogg, he collaborated with Biggie Smalls, he should be in. I call this , "Classic Rap".

Posted by Billie Joe Armstrong on Thursday, 12.16.10 @ 09:58am

He shouldnt be doing stuff with Nickelodean

Saw the D O Double-G close the 2015 Bunbury Fest. Was 2nd row for the show (had managed to get up fairly close for Brand New (a punk-metal band) set & then a lot of people headed off to see 21 Pilots & I got to where I got (just off center stage).

Snoop gave a great show, played all his songs, did a few cool covers. No special guests, just him & his backing band/crew. At end of set, just before he played last song (Jamming), he said 'I just want to leave y'all with some words of wisdom...(big pause)...SMOKE WEED MOTHERF**KERS!!!!'

Still 7 or 8 hip hop acts need to go in before him, but he can command the stage.

Posted by Paul in KY on Tuesday, 06.9.15 @ 08:17am

well... what about Bessie Smith already in and

robert johnson
big joe turner
lead belly
and so many more.

all jazz & blues not in? Furry Lewis was a heavy influence on rock and roll (especially Rolling Stones)

Many rappers from the early days 60's-80's state electronic music as their influence. Heck even Ice-T listened to House!

Rock & Roll evolved rom something and is evolving into something!

Cut that shit, rap had a lot of influence in the current rock and you know, it does not matter the genre everything is about influence in the rock that is why there are artists country, rap, folk. It does not matter in the genre that they do, it matters the influence and development that these had in the rock.
