Whitney Houston & The Infamous B.I.G. Are Formally Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Corridor Of Fame

It took a long time, but two other musical greats inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are the late and great Whitney Houston and The Notorious BIG

The official ceremony of their inauguration took place along with the rest of the 2020 class on Saturday, and their families accepted their awards on their behalf and said a few words about their heritage and what it means to them to be a part of now the Hall of fame.

Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, and sister-in-law / manager Pat Houston accepted their award and said on a taped video: “She wanted to be something, nothing. She worked hard on it too. “

Pat added, “That’s what Whitney always wanted. I remember we were in London in 2009 and Whitney looked at me and said, “This is really special, but there is only one thing missing. I have to get the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. ‘”

Biggie’s daughter Tyanna Wallace said, “I was only three years old when my father died. Although I didn’t get to know him as well as I wanted, it was through his fans and our family that I could see with my own eyes that his music surpassed the hip-hop industry. And he could not only become the king of New York, but also the king of culture. “

Her brother, CJ Wallace, added, “Our father was one of the founding fathers of hip hop. He helped revolutionize a young art form for the black community and the world. I am honored to share his name, commitment to black music, creativity, self-expression and black freedom. “

As we previously reported, an artist’s first commercial recording must have been released 25 years prior to the year of induction into the Hall of Fame.
