Along with Journey, Yes, Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, Nile Rodgers, and Pearl Jam, the Rock Hall will welcome Tupac Shakur into its ranks on April 7. Per reports, Snoop Dogg will do the induction, and we could see an appearance by Dr. Dre.

In a 2015 interview with Michael Rappaport, Snoop Dogg reminisced about meeting Shakur for the first time at a wrap party for the film Poetic Justice, which starred Shakur and Janet Jackson. The two rappers were aware of each other’s music but had never met; however, they soon bonded during a smoking session. Eventually, Shakur aligned with Snoop and Dr. Dre on Death Row Records.

What I’d really like to see is them bring back Tupac’s hologram:
