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.
