Snoop Dogg Talks Tupac's Historic Rock Hall of Fame Induction

Elaine Woods | 09 April, 2017, 03:10

"To be human is to be many things at once, strong and vulnerable, courageous and afraid", he said. Most notably, a huge tribute to posthumous inductee Tupac Shakur, with Alicia Keys, YG, Treach, T.I., and Snoop Dogg-who labeled his friend "The greatest rapper ever"-performing a medley of his hits".

Tupac is the first solo rap artist to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. He said he attended Friday night's ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to ensure the rapper, actor and poet is remembered as a "strong black man that stood for his".

Accompanied by a DJ scratching records, Keys got up from her piano and then broke into Tupac's "Changes" from his Greatest Hits album.

Rajya Sabha passes all four GST Bills

During his moving speech, Snoop, 45, reflected on several of his most memorable moments with Shakur before he was killed in a 1996 drive-by shooting at the age of 25.

Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, Journey and Yes will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday night.

The "Gin & Juice" artist recalled the first time he met 2Pac at a wrap party in LA in 1993. That transitioned into "I Get Around", "I Ain't Mad At Cha" and "Dear Mama". Before the show, Snoop caught up with Rolling Stone to talk about Tupac's continuing influence on hip-hop and the significance of letting rappers into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "And he passed me my first blunt", he said, to uproarious laughter. And if there hadn't been one around at the smoke sesh where Snoop and Tupac were introduced to each other, the two rap icons might have remained rivals instead of becoming friends. You see, I was a zig-zag man before that ... and we became very good friends quickly thereafter. "Hip hop needs our own Hall of Fame".
