In a recent Rolling Stone article, KISS bassist Chaim Witz (Gene Simmons) said he looked forward to the death of rap music. In the past, he bitched about rap acts inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. Because rappers don’t play guitars or sing, Chaim said that wasn’t rock. Therefore, the likes of Grandmaster Flash and RUN DMC shouldn’t be in the Rock Hall of Fame.
Recently, rap group NWA was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. Group members MC Ren and Ice Cube called out Chaim Witz. Both told Chaim they were indeed rock-n-roll.
On Facebook, Orlando Promoter Ryan Pemberton posted this list.
Ryan also posted this truth on Facebook. For those who don’t know, Dr. Dre of NWA earned millions for selling Beats by Dre headphones.
