Tupac Shakur’s “Temptations” (1995) music video, in particular, features a cast of celebrities including Coolio, Ice-T, Jada Pinkett Smith, also Salt and DJ Spinderella from Salt-N-Pepa, to mention a few. Tupac actually does not appear at all in the video! The hotel’s exteriors, lobby, some rooms and corridors were used in the music video.
