On the evening of April 7th, Alicia honored Tupac Shakur as the legendary rapper was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. She entertained the audience at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with a melody of his hits.
“One of my favorite things about Pac, you know every lyric that he ever sang, it came exactly from his life, exactly from his heart,” Alicia said during the performance, Pitchfork reports. “He was so raw and so real and so honest. And even though I never met him—I wish I did—I learned so much from him. All those stories, and all that realness. All that honesty. I took that with me.”
The ceremony will air on April 29 on HBO.
