He getting alot of flack for shooting a mock Donald Trump in this video. The song is actual dope and probably the first relevant song he has had in years.
We got a bunch of celebs who said the same thing but I call bullshit.
Snoop Dogg gives his thoughts on the remake of Roots which debuted tonight on the History channel starring Laurence Fishburne · Mekhi Phifer · Forest Whitaker · Produced By LeVar Burton.

Earlier, Roots co-executive producer LeVar Burton, who played the central character in the 1977 miniseries, enslaved protagonist Kunta Kinte, told USA TODAY that the remake was needed as part of a national discussion.
“We are clearly engaged in the conversation in America and it’s one where everybody needs to be involved,” Burton says. “If you are living in America right now, then the story of slavery is relevant to you, because it’s shaped the country and the culture in which you live, whether you want to admit that or not.”
I am admittedly way late on Lil Dicky. With that being said, I am still on the fence about this dude but there is obviously some type of talent there. Let’s just say he has some sort of early Eminem influence at least in this song.
Ran into this on accident this morning.
A revolutionary new way to watch YouTube.
I’m all for rap artists jumping into different genres if it sounds dope. This right here, is clear reaching on the part of Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg. The white chick with the nice little apple booty is named Ljupka Stević and I seriously doubt she had anything to with this collab. First off the song is listed as Snoop Dogg feat. Ljupka Stević but in reality he doesn’t appear until about half way through and the video was uploaded on her Youtube page. Maybe Snoop was really feeling the song (heavy sarcasm) or did a favor for her label. Who knows. But Snoop is rich enough to turn down some of these songs that just further tarnish the end of his career.
Snoop Dogg joined the ranks of public figures who’ve shared less-than-sensitive reactions to Caitlyn Jenner’s transition on social media, sharing a meme Wednesday (June 3) that compares the coverage of Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover with the coverage of Akon‘s charitable initiatives.
The image has a picture of Akon with the caption “Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 60 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society.” Snoop added: “News flash @Akon. Tune into ggn [his weekly online talk show] for some real news.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ J.R. Smith also shared the meme but has since deleted it.
RIP Nate Dogg.
Real talk from some vets in the game.
Judge Judy gets a taste of that thug life.
The one thing that confuses me about this story is how did Suge wind up killing his good friend when he alleged was attacked by two other men. Weird story indeed.
Suge Knight’s lawyer tells TMZ he’s confident murder charges will not be filed because his client has a sold defense … mortal fear.
‘..smoke weed everyday’
This even sounds better live, so he gets a huge pass for looking like ODB in this rousing performance of his hit single ‘i’ on snl.
This is a Must Watch for everybody.

Doggie Diamonds brings some clarity to the beef between Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea that was eventually squashed by T.I. I watched Snoop’s apology and it was a strong hint of sarcasm in it and it looked more about his relationship with T.I. and less about sincerely being sorry for the things he said about Iggy. Hit the cut to check out both videos..

This pic has to be one for the ages. Never thought I would see these two together after all of the previous problems they have had. I guess if Snoop has no problem with it then they must have gotten over all of their previous differences. Business Insider has the full scoop on the rich guys with them:
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Menlo Ventures investor Shervin Pishevar, a backer of the on-demand limo company, witnessed the reuniting of two rap icons that have been at odds since the 90s: Snoop Dogg and Suge Knight.
This was an absolutely dope and creepy at the same damn time! Definitely a watershed moment for Hip Hop performances, will we see Biggie Smalls next?
Gone to motherf*cking soon.
Nate Dogg — real name Nathaniel D. Hale — had survived strokes in 2007 and 2008 … and was famous for his smooth vocal collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Dr. Dre to name a few.
The Press Telegram in Nate’s hometown of Long Beach, CA first reported his death late Tuesday night.
Nate was 41 years old.
Good to see Ted back in the swing of things.
Man I think Snoop got another certified strip club anthem with this right here. Do not play at your job or face getting fired.
Hey Uncle Snoop, if I am not mistaken I thought Pacquiao agreed to the blood test and that Mayweather got cold feet and started talking about retirement? Anyway we all wanna see this fight and can’t wait to these guys sign the contract. Chuuch!

It seems cops have arrested Suge Knight again, but with a bail at $65,000 he will be out in a few hours. TMZ has the story below:
A witness in the Suge Knight incident told police that the rap mogul pointed a gun at another car this morning — while sitting in the driver’s seat of his own SUV, this according to law enforcement sources.
I have actually have watched this show twice and like the concept and think it will be a big hit. Here we have Snoop Dogg who pretends to be a parking valet.

Later this month, “The Simpsons” will jump into its 21st season with yet another entry in the fantastic “Treehouse of Horror” franchise. To celebrate the upcoming milestone and to pay respects to some great hip-hop icons, Format and Moxy Creative have teamed up to produce a series of limited-edition posters that depict 10 famous rappers “Simpsonized.” The results are pretty great. As you can see in the posse shot below, some real heavy hitters are represented: Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Flavor Flav, Andre 3000, Eminem, Eazy-E and Fat Joe have all been converted into cartoon versions of their former selves.
WTF? Like I was saying earlier, it feels like Bizarro world in Hip Hop as of lately. Last year Wayne took us to Mars, this year Snoop is in the booth with Aldrin, the second dude to set foot on the moon. What’s next, a remix with Kanye and The Dream for the “Walking on the Moon” joint? That’ll be a great shoe in wouldn’t it be?

The “Rookie of the Year” Nipsey Hussle sits down and chops it up with the Big Homie Snoop Dogg who bestows his blessings on the movement. Snoop says he is impressed with the machine that Nipsey built on his lonesome, which is the trademark of a true hustler, now he offers a blank check to Nip, which he earned as a testament to his Hussle. NY rappers need to take note, the gatekeepers don’t owe you nothing if you turning it up to a fever pitch whereas you can’t be ignored. Hussle a lil’ bit harder!

There’s a new Johnny Cash album coming your way (yes, another one – clever, eh?). This time the USP is the BPMs. Overseen by Cash’s son John Carter Cash and the ever-pliable Snoop Dogg, the likes of Sonny J, Count De Money and Pete Rock have been let loose on the Man in Black’s back catalogue. Cash more than holds his own, mainly because few of the remixes are truly radical, but also because his style is so distinctive it could survive a nuclear onslaught from Throbbing Gristle.
Ultimately you can’t help suspecting the motives. On a project like this, it’s customary to flog it with puff about the original artist “always defying convention” and “forever breaking new ground”. The Cash remix recordis no different. His son insists JC would have “loved this remix record” and perhaps that’s true – there’s a clear link, after all, between the swaggering braggadocio of lines like “I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die” and gangsta rap – but the results still feel contrived.
When confronted with these kind of genre clashes from opposite ends of the musical spectrum, my first instinct is one of deep cynicism. History teaches us to be cautious: listen to Tom Jones hefting along with the aid of the miserably misguided Wyclef Jean and you can practically smell the grubby conversations about “expanding the brand demographic”. That said, shameless marriages of convenience don’t always make for bad music. Few would argue that Run DMC and Aerosmith’s collaboration on Walk This Way was commercially motivated, but it was still fantastic, partly because there’s a natural fit between rap and hard rock. But even the famous rap-rock soundtrack to Judgment Night was in reality hit-and-miss: remember Mudhoney’s bruising encounter with Sir Mix-A-Lot, or Teenage Fanclub with De La Soul? Thought not. They were hardly career highlights, and let’s not start on Helmet and House of Pain. Continue reading
