Mariah Carey + N.W.A Nominated For Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Are they headed to the hall?

November 7, 2017

Jay Z was honored as the first hip hop artist to be inducted into the Songrwiters Hall Of Fame last year.  Following in his footsteps this year are the boys "Straight Outta Compton," N.W.A..  Good ol' Mimi, Mariah Carey also received a nomination.

Other artists nominated for the 2018 class (of the non-hip-hop variety) include Alice Cooper, Alan Jackson, Kool and the Gang and the Isley Brothers.

Fun fact:  Mariah wrote SEVENTEEN of her eighteen number one billboard hits.  Get em, girl!

Members will be able to vote for those who will be joining them in the hall until December 17th.  Best of luck to all the artists!
