Snoop also acknowledged the late rapper's talent, saying: "When I sat down to gather my thoughts about my late and great, my homie and my brother there's one thought that kept coming back: Tupac was actually really good". The demand angered Perry, who saw it as an attempt to interfere with a personal health decision, and so he chose to leave the band permanently.
