Meanwhile, Dr. Dre is reportedly in talks to also join the ceremony. The legendary producer is apparently close to signing on and insiders say that the tribute will feature at least three songs, including “California Love.”
Still, Snoop said he saw ‘Pac after he was shot in Las Vegas. “Last time I saw him, he was laying in the bed, holding onto his last breath.”
‘Pac’s relationship with Dre had similar ups and downs. The duo worked together on “California Love” and its classic cinematic video. However, once Dre started stepping away from Death Row, Shakur taunted Dre. On “To Live and Die in L.A.,” 2Pac said the song was a “California Love” sequel, “without gay ass Dre.”
Tupac will be inducted into the Rock Hall along with Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes, Joan Baez, and Electric Light Orchestra on April 7 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
