The nominations for the 2012 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions are in and Eric B. & Rakim are among the honorees. Unfortunately, they’ll probably have to wait another year or so as it’s more likely that the Beastie Boys, who were nominated last year but ultimately snubbed, will be the sole Rap act selected this time around. Other nominees include, Guns & Roses, Rufus with Chaka Khan, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Cure. The induction ceremony is scheduled for April 14, 2012 at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
