Whitney died in 2012 at age 48 and Biggie in 1997 at age 24.
The two artists will join Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and T-Rex among other.
Whitney is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold 200 million albums worldwide.
Biggie, whose real name is Christopher Wallace, is known for his hits Juicy and Big Poppa.
His posthumous album, Life After Death, was certified Diamond by the RIAA.
The official induction ceremony will take place in Ohio in May.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Award-winning rapper Kofi Kinaata has stated that he does not associate himself with Christianity or any other religion.
Kofi Kinaata disclosed that though he believes in God he does not see himself as a Christian because the religion is man-made.
In an interview on Joy FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh, the 'Things Fall Apart' hitmaker said he does not believe in religion because it is man-made, but he believes there is a most-high God who created the universe.
"God is not a Christian. God is not a religion, we humans brought religion,” the 'Time No Dey' singer said. Kofi Kinaata sees no reason why he should associate himself with something man-made when he can go directly to God.
