Snoop Dogg will be inducting Tupac in the Hall of Fame on April 7th. Tupac and Snoop Dogg were both label mates on Deathrow Records and collaborated on various songs, most notably ‘2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted’ off Tupac’s Double CD All Eyez On Me. According to TMZ Snoop will perform a tribute alongside perhaps former label mate DR Dre who also had a classic record with Tupac ‘California Love’. This wouldn’t be the first time Snoop and Dre will pay homage to Tupac. Many remember the infamous hologram performance at cochella in 2012.
It doesn’t end there. Throughout Manhattan today the official trailer will be shown to everyone via a mobile digital billboard courtesy of Legion Digital. LT Hutton and Legion Digital will be handing out free t-shirts during their ride through the city. LT Hutton via his Instagram showed a preview of the truck.
