The hall unveiled its list of nominees Monday, which includes 35 men, 13 women and two families, among them a few repeat picks who weren’t chosen for induction in prior years.
Superstar Newark actor Michael B. Jordan, 35, set to make his directorial debut in “Creed III,” out this fall, is also up for the hall.
Newark and Plainfield’s P-Funk pioneer George Clinton is another nominee. Clinton, 80, who is reportedly the subject of a forthcoming biopic possibly starring Eddie Murphy, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Parliament-Funkadelic in 1997. He received a Grammy lifetime achievement award in 2019.
