The “Microphone Fiend” and his former partner, Eric B. recently missed out on being inducted into this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But they congratulated their peers, A Tribe Called Quest and Mary J. Blige, for being included in this year’s ceremony.

Eric B & Rakim said, “Congratulations to the diverse group of artists inducted into the Rock Hall this year. Seeing Tribe and Mary on the list besides Cher, Ozzy, Kool and the Gang, and all of the other icons show how inclusive the institution has become.”

It was the second time they were nominated after missing being inducted in 2012.

But, it hasn’t discouraged Rakim from possibly getting in one day. He was optimistic before finding out they missed the boat again this year.

He previously told AllHipHop, “Maybe it’ll happen this time. “I feel great about it. Let me tell you, anytime anybody nominates you or thinks about you, you should feel great. I think it’s a long time coming. We’re all righteous guys and girls, so it’s on God’s time, not our time. I’d be just as appreciative if I won it the first time, so it’s great.”
