Issa Honor: Nina Simone leads Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 inductees; LL Cool J snubbed

Nina Simone, dubbed music’s “High Priestess of Soul,” will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Named one of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by Rolling Stone, the late “Mississippi Goddamn,” songstress will join an elite collection of carefully selected luminaries—including legends the Cars, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, and the Moody Blues— in the highly regarded Hall’s class of 2018.


With a hauntingly unclassifiable range, which served as the soulful soundtrack to the civil rights movement, Nina—who’s been eligible for induction into the exclusive club of musical greats since 1986—has served as an inspiration for culture icons Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Common.

Unfortunately, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nominee and rap legend, LL Cool J, did NOT make the cut for 2018 induction.

However, Queens’ incomparable “I️ Need Love” lyricist recently became the first Hip-Hop artist to receive Kennedy Center Honors, completed the business of entertainment, media & sports program at Harvard Business School, and will soon welcome his first grandchild…

So, needless to say, he has more than enough to celebrate and can EASILY be re-nominated for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame immortality in the coming years.

The 33rd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place April 14 at Public Auditorium in Cleveland. The ceremony is slated to air on HBO next spring.
