And while many remember him now as some kind of thugged-out superhero, Tupac knew he was only human, and he represented through his music like no one before.
The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with 2Pac entering the Hall alongside music legends like Pearl Jam, Nile Rodgers, Yes and Electric Light Orchestra.
But to me, Tupac was first and foremost the homeboy.
Baez then played an acoustic version of the traditional spiritual Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, and ended with the hope the song's band of angels were "coming for to carry me, you, us, even Donald Trump, home". We shared a whole lot in common. A great example of this is when Snoop details personal memories of when he went parasailing with Tupac and now infamous former label head of Death Row Records, Suge Knight.
Considering Snoop Dogg's history and relationship with Tupac, it's only fitting he was involved in the history-making occasion.
But possibly the most important information in the history of Snoop Dogg's career was finally revealed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - Tupac got Snoop into smoking blunts. We were both born in the same year, 1971.
"I don't know if he'd be happy or not", he said.
"Let us together repeal and replace brutality and make compassion a priority". Neighbors, you dig? We had no peers beside one another.
Tupac's full length tribute is slated to hit the small screen when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame airs April 29, on HBO. "Let us build a great bridge, a attractive bridge, to welcome the exhausted and the poor", Baez told the Hall of Fame audience. "I'm not talking about Pac the rapper, I'm not talking about Tupac the actor, I'm talking about Tupac the human being", Snoop concluded, as Tupac was officially inducted into the Hall of Fame.
