Six legendary artists were inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame on Thursday night.

One artist inducted was Memphis native and Stax recording artist William Bell.

"This is one of the greatest honors of all time,” when you're recognized by not only your peers but your hometown,” Bell said.

Bell was joined on stage by hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg.

"I was on stage with a great artist, the great William Bell, with his band and I'm in Memphis--home of great music, so with not be festive,” Snoop Dogg said.

The rapper is a long time friend of Bell and recorded a version of “I Forgot to be Your Lover,” for the film Take Me to The River.

“Tonight we honor these greats,” Snoop said. “Hopefully, their sprit will rub off on me, and one day you'll see me in a position like these greats tonight."

Also inducted was The Hi Rhythm Section, blues icon John Lee Hooker, jazz saxophone great Charles Lloyd, opera legend Marguerite Piazza, and Grammy-winning musician Sam “The Sham” Samudio.
