The debate between Ice Cube and Gene Simmons regarding Hip Hop’s place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame continued yesterday (April 11), with the N.W.A member mocking the Kiss frontman in light of his recent comments.

“Rock ‘n’ Roll is not an instrument,” Ice Cube wrote on Twitter, reiterating his speech from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 8. “It’s not even a style of music. It’s a spirit that’s been going on since the blues, jazz, bebop, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, R&B, heavy metal, punk rock, and yes, hip-hop. Rock ‘n’ Roll is not conforming to the people who came before you, but creating your own path in music and life. That is rock ‘n’ roll and that is us.”

He added: “@genesimmons I repeat. And say this with a Kiss.”

In response, Simmons tweeted: “Cube – I stand by my words. Respect NWA, but when Led Zep gets into Rap Hall of Fame, I will agree with your point.”

Simmons has been vocal about his disapproval regarding the induction of Rap artists to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During an interview with Radio.com in 2014, Simmons said: “if you don’t play guitar and you don’t write your own songs, you don’t belong there.” During the same interview, he added: “You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-DMC in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You’re killing me! That doesn’t mean those aren’t good artists. But they don’t play guitar. They sample and they talk. Not even sing!”
