For many decades now, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been recognizing some of the best talents and most influential people in the American music industry. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017 just announced the nominees for induction and 19 artists were included in this year's list.

CNN published some of the first-time nominees including Bad Brains, Depeche Mode, Electric Light, Orchestra, Jane's Addiction, Joan Baez, Journey, Pearl Jame, Steppenwolf and Tupac Shakur. While, others have been nominated before.

One of the most famous rapper, Tupac Shakur, is an icon when it comes to hip hop. He became influential at the time, with his real-life lyricism, reflecting violence, racism, hardships and other societal problems. USA Today reports, the rapper came from rags-to-riches and is selling records worldwide of up to 75 million.

Tupac born as Lesane Parish Crooks was shot in a drive-by twenty years ago. Nonetheless, his influence in the hip hop scene played a major impact resulting to millions of record sales, and his contributions became a benchmark for succeeding rappers, the site added.

Alongside 800 artists, the public will be fortunate to participate by votation in choosing which nominee is rightful to be inducted in this year's Hall. Rolling Stone published, as of this moment until December 6th, people can vote on for their favorite nominee.

For this year's ballot, nominees should have released their first single or album in 1991 or earlier, Rolling Stone detailed. Due to the prestigious recognition, alienated band members reunite to celebrate this occasion. Last year's Hall of Fame class, as reported by Rolling Stone, were N.W.A, Steve Miller, Cheap Trick, Chicago and Deep Purple. 

Most voted nominees will be made public on December and induction ceremony will take place in April at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
