Wonder Mike and Master Gee of The Sugarhill Gang, Spoonie G & The Treacherous Three and Busy Bee Starski will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at the event, and Ralph MCDaniels, the founder of Tv show Video Music Box, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The show will be hosted by Roxanne Shante and DJ Mell Starr.
