After opening at No. 1, The Miseducation spent four total weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart in 1998. The Fugees member’s debut album became the first Hip-Hop project to win the Grammy Award for Album Of The Year.

De La Soul dropped 3 Feet High and Rising in 1989. Numerous music publications have listed the trio’s debut LP as one of the greatest Hip-Hop albums of all time.

The Recording Academy will officially honor the 2024 inducted recordings at the inaugural Grammy Hall Of Fame Gala and Concert. That event takes place on May 21 at The Novo Theater in Los Angeles.
