Snoop Dogg once revealed that it was none other than late rapper Tupac Shakur who put him on 'smoking blunts' back in the day.

Little did Snoop, or anyone else, know back in 1993 that Tupac Shakur was about to introduce him to a massive part of his character.

Over the course of his career, Snoop has become pretty well known for his love of cannabis - so much so that he has even smoked in the bathroom of the White House and has his own personal full-time blunt roller.

But what some fans may not know is that Snoop's love of weed actually came from his good pal Tupac.

Snoop Dogg and Tupac were close from early on in their careers, both being key players in Suge Knight's Death Row Records.

The two would go on to collaborate on Tupac's hit track '2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted'.

It was written in the stars that these two would hit it off right away, with Tupac offering Snoop his 'first blunt' on the night they met.

"I finally got a chance to meet Pac in 1993 at a wrap party for Poetic Justice in LA," the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper revealed during Tupac's posthumous induction to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017.

"On that night, Pac passed me my first blunt," he said, sparking an uproar of laughter and cheers from the crowd.

"No, for real," Snoop insisted.

"You see, I was a Zig Zag man before that s**t.

"And we became very good friends quickly thereafter."

That's no surprise!

Elsewhere in his speech Snoop went on to share how he helped Tupac get into Death Row Records.

"In 1995, I told Suge Knight - I said, 'Suge, get Pac out of prison and have him come join our team at Death Row Records', you know, the most un-f***-with-able record label of all time?" he said.

Tupac served eight months in prison on sexual abuse charges, but was released on a $1.4 million bail by Death Row records.

"And our friendship there was like player to player... it was like he joined the Showtime Lakers," Snoop reminisced.

"Dre was the coach, Suge was the owner, and me and Pac were the stars on the court making history with every new song."

Snoop has previously spoken about the last time he saw Tupac before he died. The legendary rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996.

"When we drive to Vegas to see Pac. We got to Suge’s house first, so we haven't even seen Pac," he told the Impaulsive podcast last year.

"We just talking to Suge, and he got the head wrapped up and he telling us what happened and [saying] 'Pac gonna be alright, he going to pull through he got shot nine times before he going to be alright.'"

But when he visited Tupac in hospital, he realised just how dire things were.

“We feeling like it's gonna be alright until we go to the hospital and see that it ain't alright. He got tubes in him.

"When I walked in, I could just feel like he wasn't even there and I fainted."
