Tupac’s Amazing Rock Hall of Fame Induction

At the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, Snoop Dogg inducted the late Tupac Shakur. The ceremony was held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“Since my brother is not here in the physical form, I’ll accept this honor on his behalf,” Snoop said. “I love you Tupac, welcome to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thug Life!”

One of the most influential hip-hop artists of all time, Tupac was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in 1996. Tupac now joins other hip-hop inductees such as Run DMC, the Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Additionally, Tupac will now be remembered alongside the most influential musicians of all time, such as Chuck Berry, who died earlier this year.

Alicia Keys, T.I., and Treach also paid tribute to Tupac. Watch the video here:
