A restaurant in NY has temporarily brought to life an eatery envisioned by Tupac Shakur, coinciding with the late rapper's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Pop and hip-hop stars Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, YG and T.I paid homage to the late rapper by performing a medley of his hits and the crowd obviously went wild!
Prior to the performance, Snoop delivered a hilarious, heartfelt induction speech that focused on "Tupac the actual human being" instead of "Tupac, some kind of thugged-out superhero". It's a fact he never shied away from.
"Just to be associated with the greatest, he was only a part of my industry move as far as creatively for two or three years, but his music lasts forever", Snoop added. With an unapologetic voice, Pac embraced those contradictions that proved we ain't just a character out of someone else's storybook.
"Tupac, we love you, dawg", Snoop finished. That's what made Tupac an awesome actor on the big screen in movies like "Above the Rim" and 'Juice.' That's what made him so engaged with everything he ever did.

I said 'he hasn't called but guys, knowing him, he'll say that he went a year ago and we lost.' So that's what I was thinking. In UNC's 77-76 semifinal win over OR on Saturday, he only had two points on 1-of-12 shooting from the field.
For even more Pac, peep the extended version of his biopic, All Eyez on Me, out on his birthday, June 16, 2017. He saw more potential in me than I saw in myself and it's amusing because after he passed away I started getting a lot of movie roles and all this stuff. Strong and bold. Hard headed and intellectual. "Hip hop needs our own Hall of Fame". I'm not talking about 'Pac the rapper, I'm not talking about Tupac the actor.
Tupac Shakur would still show up for his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction though, Ice Cube says. You will live on forever.
