Kiss' Gene Simmons has a lot of opinions -- one of them, probably unsurprisingly, is that "rap will die." He recently told Rolling Stone, "I am looking forward to the death of hip-hop," a stance that some rappers naturally took issue with.
Well, during N.W.A's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2016, MC Ren shut down Simmons' prediction in no uncertain terms at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Friday (April 8).
"I want to say to Mr. Gene Simmons that hip-hop is here forever," Ren said. "We're supposed to be here." While most of the Barclays Center responded with cheers, a few sour boos could be heard throughout the venue, either in protest to hip-hop or in Simmons' defense.
