Alicia Keys sang at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Brooklyn on Friday night, and many Twitter users weren’t too happy about it.

Moments after Snoop Dogg took to the Barclays Center stage to induct the late rapper, Keys came out and performed a few of Tupac’s famous hits, including “I Ain’t Mad at Cha,” “Dear Mama” and “I Get Around.”

Fans of the East Harlem-born rapper responded to her performance with criticism, expressing disappointment that the Hall didn’t choose a rapper newer to the music scene whose sound has been directly influenced by Tupac, such as Kendrick Lamar.

After Keys’ performance, T.I. made a brief appearance and sang “Keep Ya Head Up.”

Here’s what Twitter had to say about Tupac’s honor.
