The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame has inducted its class of 2017 for their musical excellence on April 7 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. English rock band, Electric Light Orchestra and Yes, American rock band, Pearl Jam and Journey, folk icon and activist Joan Baez, West Coast rap god Tupac Shakur and Nile Rogers from band Chic all were inducted into Hall of Fame ranks.

And what I found strange was that how did 2Pac make into the Hall of Fame despite a career which was as short as seven years? Because according to the Hall of Fame process, the artist or group become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record.

Well, I am very happy that he has been given this recognition and also he became the first solo artist from hip hop industry to get this accolade.

Read down to know the reasons behind 2Pac's journey to Hall of Fame.
