It's tough to take him seriously as a hip-hop artist now, when he's an a-list movie star. But he was a big part of making rap safe for white suburban kids in the late 80's. If anything, he would get in as the Fresh Prince with DJ Jazzy Jeff, not for his later solo work, which is pretty bland.

The worst thing to happen to the entertainment industry since EVER!

Terrible rapper!
Horrible TV show!
Can't make one decent movie worth watching more than once!

"Rock & Roll" should be thought of as all-encompassing music, in my opinion.

Having said that, Will Smith will not be inducted. And it's not because he rapped (and I'll use that term loosely), it's because he did nothing innovative or worthy of induction.

Another rapper who's better as an actor in my book.
