Hip-hop legend MELE MEL is convinced rapper 50 Cent will one day follow him into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame - even though he "won't deserve it". Mele Mel and his GRANDMASTER FLASH AND THE FURIOUS FIVE bandmates became the first hip-hop artists to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame in New York City yesterday (12MAR07). Mele Mel, real name MELVIN GLOVER, is proud of his group's achievement, but is aware that subsequent hip-hop artists, such as 50 Cent, will find it much easier to enter the Hall of Fame, strictly because of their huge sales volume. He says, "Today's music is more stagnant - they've been doing the same thing, saying the same thing, for years. It's not going anywhere. "50 Cent may be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame one day, but he won't deserve it. All he did was just make records and the records made money. "He wasn't as influential as Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five, or RUN D.M.C. or Kurtis Blow or Public Enemy. These are the influential groups in hip-hop. That's the biggest movement and the bigger story about what hip-hop is."
