    Snoop Dogg has been slated to induct Tupac Shakur into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place in Brooklyn on April 7th.

    Snoop Dogg is credited with bringing his late friend to Death Row Records, and the two rappers collaborated on All Eyez on Me's "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted."

    It was on Sunday, via a report on TMZ, that Snoop's involvement with the ceremony was first reported. It was also suggested that Dr. Dre, who was also honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with N.W.A. in 2016, would also be involved in the event. In an unconfirmed report, it was also suggested that Snoop and Dre will be participating in a three-song tribute to Shakur, throwing the hit single "California Love" into the mix.

    Just a couple of years ago, in an interview with Michael Rappaport, Snoop Dogg discussed meeting Shakur for the first time. During a wrap party for the film Poetic Justice, in which Shakur starred alongside Janet Jackson, Snoop would encounter the rapper who would go on to become his friend. The two rappers were aware of each other's music but had never met; however, sharing a smoking session of their mutually beloved herb, the two men bonded. Eventually, Shakur aligned with Snoop and Dr. Dre on Death Row Records.

    During the interview with Rappaport, Snoop said, "'Pac brought a spirit to the studio that was different than anybody we ever worked with… He had a spirit — like this n**** could be in three different rooms at one time makin' music. He would never listen to it."

    The 2017 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also includes Pearl Jam, Yes, Joan Baez, Journey and Electric Light Orchestra. The ceremony takes place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 7th — it promises to be a great night for bands, fans and music lovers alike.
