Presenters for additional inductees Public Enemy, Heart, Quincy Jones and Lou Adler will be announced in the coming weeks.

Chuck D of Public Enemy recently hailed the rap group's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a victory for hip-hop.

"Us going in is a win for our peers like Kurtis Blow or KRS-One, Queen Latifah and [the already-inducted] Run DMC, the Beastie Boys, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5," Chuck D said.

"They're our peers, and I feel thankful we're joining that list, but also we look to shine the light on so many others and tell them that this is their induction, too."
