Snoop Dogg inducted the legendary Tupac Shakur into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Friday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The west coast veteran spoke highly of Pac during his emotional speech to the packed arena. Pitchfork reported that Snoop said, “While many of you remember him now as some kind of thugged-out superhero, Tupac knew he was only human. It’s a fact that he never shied away from—he wore it like a badge of honor.”
After the speech, Alicia Keys performed a tribute to Tupac that included “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” and “Change. YG and Snoop got together to perform “2 of Amerikaz most wanted.” T.I. and Treach of Naughty by Nature also took the stage to perform a couple of Pac hits.
