Scott Ian On Public Enemy’s Rock Hall Induction: 'They Absolutely Deserve It'
This week, iconic hip-hop group Public Enemy will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, alongside classic rock acts Rush and Heart and singer-songwriter Randy Newman, among others. And while they aren't the first artist from that genre to be inducted – Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Run-D.M.C. and The Beastie Boys are all Hall Of Famers – there are still people who don't feel hip-hop belongs in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Anthrax's Scott Ian, however, isn't among them.
"Hip-hop for me – or let's call it 'rap,' that's what I called it – from, say, 1981 to 1993, I was into that as I was into any other kind of music," he tells Radio.com.
