West Coast rap veteran Ice Cube has shared his thoughts on late hip-hop mogul 2Pac receiving a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination.

Approached by a paparazzo, Cube stressed the importance of Pac getting into the Hall of Fame.

“Hey man, I think we need to our own hall of fame, to be honest. But 2Pac definitely needs to go into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. [If he doesn’t get in the first year,] I don’t think it matters as long as he gets in.” (TMZ)

Buzz developed yesterday (October 18) about Pac landing a nomination.


The 2017 inductees will be formally announced later this year.

Those selected for induction will be announced in December after being chosen by a committee of more than 800 people, including former inductees, historians and members of the music industry. (THV 11)

Last month, various celebrities remembered Pac on the anniversary of his passing.
