If Motown owned the 1960s, the '70s belonged to Philly International Records.

Superproducers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff defined the sound of Philadelphia for the world.

After racking up 175 gold or platinum records, the duo is finally being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The two talk with Farai Chideya about their amazing careers and their classic tunes.
