    Q-Tip Praises Hip-Hop Arists For Shaping Music Culture

    After the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees were announced, rapper Q-Tip says that hip-hop has played a monumental role in the current state of music.

    Q-Tip's group, A Tribe Called Quest, is nominated to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year. Following the announcement that Tribe was being recognized, the 51-year-old explained how the group was able to be widely accepted while performing in front of all-white audiences.

    "We played in front of more rock audiences than rap audiences," Tip recalled telling friend and fellow inductee LL Cool J. A Tribe Called Quest shared the stage with Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, and many others, which bridged the gap between rock with hip-hop.

    "I feel like the story of music and music's evolution can't happen without hip-hop artists," the "Bonita Applebum" star shared.

    Does Q-Tip have a point? Has hip-hop shaped the rock & roll culture, as well as other genres?
