Hip-hop legends LL Cool J and NWA have been nominated for entries into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2014. This is the second year that the infamous West Coast rap group has been up for the award, which is one of music’s highest honors.

According to, they are the only hip-hop acts to be nominated and both meet the requirements for submission which include having released albums 25 years before 2012. The rappers are also up against some pretty stiff competition—Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, Hall and Oats, Kiss and Chic.

The deadline for nominations end on December 10 and fans will once again have an opportunity to vote for which acts they would like to see inducted into the Hall of Fame.  The Induction Ceremony will take place in April in New York and will broadcast on HBO.

Congrats to all the nominees!
