Memories of Tupac breath life into 2017 Rock Hall Ceremony

He's hip hop history.

During his moving speech, Snoop, 45, reflected on several of his most memorable moments with Shakur before he was killed in a 1996 drive-by shooting at the age of 25.

The rapper's life and music has sparked the release of documentaries, movies and a Broadway musical, although many would question his impact on rock and roll.

Bayern Munich run over Borussia Dortmund 4-1
Captain Lars Stindl scored the victor nine minutes from time for Gladbach after Cologne had twice come from behind to equalise. Lewandowski stepped up to take the penalty and slotted it home for the 4-1 victory.

"[Dr.] Dre was the coach, Suge [Knight] was the owner, and me and Pac, we were the players on the court making history with every new song", he said. Hopefully I can influence them [the Masters] to invite more people like myself who are cool and who are hip-hop and who are about other things and bring some flavour to the Masters and not just let it be quiet.

Former Journey frontman Steve Perry reunited on stage with his "Don't Stop Believin'" bandmates for the first time in 25 years to screams and hugs of joy, while Roy Wood of Electric Light Orchestra turned up for the NY ceremony 45 years after leaving the English band.

"Tupac's a part of history for a reason - because he made history. He's American history", Snoop said.

On Friday he will become only the sixth rap act to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. "It just ain't the same thing".

Alex Ovechkin and other players aren't so sure the NHL's decision to skip the Winter Olympics in South Korea next year is final. The 13-hour time difference between South Korea and the US Eastern Standard Time zone has also been cited as an issue.

The 1960s protest singer Joan Baez, British progressive rock group Yes, and Seattle-based grunge band Pearl Jam were also among the rock hall class of 2017. Although the ceremony won't be broadcast until later this month (on HBO) plenty of highlights are already leaking out onto the internet.
