Massive - TUPAC, SNOOP & DRE
Hip Hop Icon/Legend Tupac Shakur, is set to have a reunion of sorts, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month. It's looking like m a Death Row Records reunion vibe. The late icon’s former labelmate Snoop Dogg is leading the tribute in honor of his “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” collaborator.
Meanwhile, domestic abuse master Dr. Dre is reportedly in talks to also join the ceremony. The legendary producer is apparently close to signing on, word has it, that the tribute will feature at least three songs, including “California Love.”
Snoop and ‘Pac had a friendly relationship that included “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.” However, ‘Pac reportedly shunned Snoop for not beefing with Puff Daddy and The Notorious B.I.G. at the height of his Bad Boy feud. “Me and him clashed, because [radio host Angie Martinez] asked me on the air, ‘How do you feel about Puffy and Biggie?’ And I said what I felt. ‘They my homeboys. I love ’em,'” Snoop told “Sway in the Morning.”
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.” ... OOPS Dre outed once again.
