Benzino thinks it’s absurd that Eminem is being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame before Nas, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill.

This morning, it was announced that Eminem was leading the 2022 class of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees. While many celebrated Em’s accomplishment, Benzino said that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame treats hip-hop no differently than the Grammys without mentioning his former adversary. “Rock and roll hall of fame is just like the Grammy’s, they have no respect for our culture, Black or Hip Hop and if you don’t agree, you’re racist, period point blank,” he tweeted.
Benzino isn’t the only person who feels this way. Rolling Stone published an article pointing out that Em was inducted into the Hall Of Fame before the pioneers that paved the way. “Eminem has now been inducted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame before countless Black hip-hop pioneers who paced the way for his success. What message does that send?” The tweet linking to the article reads.
