Martha Reeves won't be rapping in the streets.
The leader of the girl-group Martha and the Vandellas said rap singers don't belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland."Some of the music today I wouldn't take to a dogfight," Reeves said. "When rap comes on, I leave the room because I don't want to hear it."
Reeves, whose hits with the Vandellas include the Motown classic "Dancing in the Streets," asked museum officials Wednesday to refuse to induct rap artists.
That won't be a problem for the time being, since the only musicians eligible are those who released their first record at least 25 years ago.
