    great question and my take:

    classic songs check

    classic albums check

    longevity check

    versatility check

    big songs with other acts and styles check

    live act check

    impact and influnce check

    this is a obvious yes


    however this is why not

    scandal has some impact

    however he is considered a R&B act mainly
    and there is so much politics,

    look at what Janet Jackson done had to go through? Chic should have been in? Barry White as well?

    Rick James should be in as well? War should be in? gap band as well

    what should be a slam dunk career of a catelog got some holes and it will be interesting how long they make him wait.

    so much politics involved. i get the feeling they gonna make him wait a minute. if he got in ASAP that would be great however Black R&B acts unless they cross over big time tend to have to wait until those stiff necks give the green light i kid you not

    You know, I was writing on how I do believe that Kellz would be inducted due to his immense presence and impact in music. His name alone rings bells but I have to be honest and look at this from an outsider perspective. The people who are in charge of the whole induction are probably older white men (I'm not sure, just saying) and we know those types just view Kellz as a sex obsessed rapper who made one popular ballad (I Believe I Can Fly) and a bunch of sexual R&B songs. I don't think those people would understand the type of magnitude albums like 12 Play or TP-2.COM had on R&B and even music in general. Also will they take into account that Kellz produced and wrote the vast majority of his catalog by himself?

    I'm surprised that he has yet to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame yet Diane Warren BEEN an inductee. Also the fact that Kellz has only won 3 Grammys.... Idk y'all... I honestly think they will make him wait 3 to 4 years after eligibility date. Janet was eligible in 2007, she's now just being nominated. Same with Chaka Khan, eligible in 2003 but is nominated now.

    I will say tho, if Kellz makes more serious albums and polishes his image then I can see him being inducted the same year he's eligible. Looking at the names (Hidden Content ) I just don't see how he can be overlooked. His name sticks out like a sore thumb, IMO. There's a 50/50 chance. I fully support the Blues project cause it will get him in the good graces of many. He needs to maximize his talent. I'm so sick of him overdoing the Hip-Hop gimmick because it sets him back. He's almost 50, time to throw away the baggy clothing and wear nice clothes and perform with a live band. Polish his image and make serious good music. Just listening to R. that album had a bit of everything, personal songs, ballads, etc. We need that type of R. Kelly back.

    Should get in easily, but may take a long time due to scandal and the fact he is an R&B artist even though he has a ton of Top 40 hits. I think Mary J. will be a good barometer on to see if and when he gets in. She's likely to get in before him because she came on the scene first and she's beloved by MSM.
