When Tupac Shakur signed to Death Row Records in 1995, there was no doubt in any hip-hop fan's mind that he and Snoop Dogg would be a dream team. They were the two top guns on the West Coast at the time, they were on the hottest label and were backed by rap's premier producer, Dr. Dre.

For the most part it was all love between the two MCs. They were friends before Pac came to Death Row and grew even closer once they were labelmates. Their collaboration, "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted," became an instant classic when it was released in 1996, and in working with Pac, Snoop took away a few unexpected pearls of wisdom.

One of the most valuable lessons Snoop learned from Pac was to work constantly in the studio and bang out at least three songs a day. And while Snoop has been consistent with putting out material, the advice that helped him most in life was about a much more personal matter. Yes, Tupac was a hip-hop legend, an acclaimed thespian and an inspiring activist, but, as the D-O-double-G told "Tupac: Resurrection" director Lauren Lazin, he was also one heck of a relationship counselor. ...

The sh-- he was sayin', it was real.

  "For him to tell me that, the sh-- really stuck in my heart."

It was sounding crazy comin' from him because he didn't have no relationship like that. For him to tell me that, the sh-- really stuck in my heart. When I got home [me and my son's mother] pieced it back together. We worked it out and eventually got married. I gave him a lot of credit for that because I didn't have no direction. I didn't have nobody to talk to and I was young and I didn't really know. His advice stood out more than the negative advice did.

We was peers. So it's like two great athletes on the same court. You got Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan on the court. They both give each other something. So it was like that kinda relationship with me and Pac. But like I said, he helped me with my wife, which meant more than an
