The legendary rap group N.W.A. are finally getting what they deserve after the success of the Straight Outta Compton biopic by F. Gary Gray. After four attempts the hip hop group are finally being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

N.W.A join rock veterans Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple and Steve Miller as the Hall of Fame inductees for 2016. The five groups will be officially honored during a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on April 8, which will air on HBO in the Spring.

“This means that the group’s mark is solidified,” Ice Cube told Rolling Stone. “We got some of the most creative, talented people in N.W.A that’s ever been compiled in one group. It’s just exciting that the group as a whole gets recognized by the whole industry as Hall of Fame-worthy.”

“When we started N.W.A, I couldn’t have imagined this,” Dr. Dre added. “I never thought the type of music we were making would receive such a high accolade. I have always done what I love to do, so to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is unreal. I am humbled to be included in such an amazing group of great artists.”

N.W.A are now the fifth rap act to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, joining an esteemed class that includes Public Enemy, Run-D.M.C., Beastie Boys and Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five.
