Snoop Dogg Will Induct 2Pac into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
A mini Death Row reunion could happen next month at the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. According to TMZ, Snoop Dogg (and possibly Dr. Dre) has been tapped to formally induct Tupac Shakur into the Rock Hall.
In addition, Snoop is reportedly planning to bring several West Coast rappers together and perform a medley of the late rapper’s hits at the ceremony. An insider told the gossip website that it will be three songs performed by Snoop and company. Of course, “California Love” is one of the songs chosen in the setlist.
There’s no official word on who will join Snoop and Dre onstage, but we hope that Kendrick Lamar and Ice Cube is on the shortlist of performers being considered.
2Pac will be the sixth hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Rock Hall. In 2016, N.W.A. was ushered into the hall, amid criticism from KISS guitarist Gene Simmons.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
