Snoop also called Tupac, "the greatest rapper of all time", and said, "Pac embraced those contradictions that proved that we aren't just a character in someone else's comic book". Tupac Shakur died in 1996, and is considered one of the most influential rappers ever. The two friends had been signed to Dr. Dre and Suge Knight's Death Row Records. 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. "To be human is to be many things at once", Snoop said. Then I was like, you know what, fuck it.
Hip hop artist Ice Cube - who was inducted into the Hall of Fame a year ago along with the five other members of NWA - said he thought Shakur would have "shown up" to receive the honour. But he'd never thought about rolling a joint in cigar papers until Tupac showed him how at the wrap party for the movie 'Poetic Justice' (1993), starring Tupac and Janet Jackson. That's right, Tupac is the one that got Snoop Dogg smoking weed.
Romo to be honorary Maverick for final home game

Sticky Situation for Molina Leads to Cubs Win
All this came after John Lackey had what we might call "the typical Lackey first inning", though some of it wasn't his fault. The Cardinals led in the seventh inning when Cecil got Cubs pinch hitter Matt Szczur to strike out on a pitch in the dirt.
Wisconsin Dairy Farms Hit By Canada's Trade Actions
Ron Johnson issued a statement saying, "Wisconsin dairy farmers should not be the victims of a trade dispute they didn't start". He said he understood that cost would be removed when milk no longer needed to be transported to eastern state markets.
"On that night, 'Pac passed me my first blunt", Snoop recalled, earning a laugh. You see, I was a zig-zag man before that ... and we became very good friends quickly thereafter.
Then, a number of artists paid tribute to him via a performance of some of his biggest hits.
R&B songstress Alicia Keys kicked off the musical portion of the tribute performing a medley of Tupac's hits from "Ambitionz az a Rida" to "I Ain't Mad at Cha" and "Dear Mama" on a piano. The Hall of Fame has come a long way and we appreciate them for appreciating us for what we do.
