Snoop Dogg Inducted Tupac Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Hopefully I can influence them [the Masters] to invite more people like myself who are cool and who are hip-hop and who are about other things and bring some flavour to the Masters and not just let it be quiet.

Snoop's speech was the best of the night, proving he was the ideal person to induct the first solo rapper to enter the Rock Hall.

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

"Snoop Dogg made sure 'Pac is remembered the way he would've wanted to be - a strong black man that stood for his". The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with 2Pac entering the Hall alongside music legends like Pearl Jam, Nile Rodgers, Yes and Electric Light Orchestra.

The primary threat is wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour , according to the National Weather Service. Tornado Warnings began popping up around 3 p.m.in Coffee County and continued east as the storm passed.

Emotions ran high for the induction of Shakur, the Harlem-born rapper who was gunned down at age 25 in a 1996 drive-by shooting in Las Vegas that has never been resolved.

"I can't believe it's been 21 years since we got to hear Tupac.the human being", proclaimed Snoop.

Rapper T.I. performs at the 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in NY. "And he passed me my first blunt", he said, to uproarious laughter. "Snoop Dogg and Tupac parasailed with Suge Knight driving the boat!" he marveled. You see, I was a zig-zag man before that ... and we became very good friends quickly thereafter. Alicia Keys played a medley of his Shakur's hits, including "I Ain't Mad At Cha" and "Dear Mama", while T.I. appeared on stage dressed in a Shakur-inspired outfit featuring his trademark bandana. "Let us build a great bridge, a lovely bridge, to welcome the exhausted and the poor", Baez told the Hall of Fame audience.
