Snoop Dogg's visit to the Breakfast Club was undoubtedly a top moment for the crew in 2019. And why wouldn't it be? It's Snoop!
Uncle Snoop had all the energy and ALL the stories. From snapping pictures with Wendy Williams at 50 Cent's Tycoon Pool Party and being completely oblivious about her not being allowed in, to his experience with the controversial Death Row Records and bossman Suge Knight. Even the west coast vs east coast within the music and the respect Tupac earned with his Cali peers.
The OG also shared his opinion on the NFL's recent deal with Jay-Z that sparked an argument of whether the rapper was being a hypocritical sellout or if he was making smart business moves. He stands for his fellow hip-hop mogul stepping in to "try to help" the situation. Snoop went on about the "old white owners with the slave mentality" eventually having to step to the side for a new generation of business-minded individuals. That's where he's looking for Jay to have as much control as possible. And that doesn't mean "minority ownership."
We can forget to cherish how candid he was about how difficult it was to write "One Blood" following Nipsey Hussle's death.
"It took me a minute because I was still trying to translate his death. That s*** really broke my heart. It really really broke my heart like a little that get his heart broke. It was kind of hard to try to go in and write something with a spirit up. 'How do I celebrate him feeling like I'm feeling? How do I represent him in a light that's gonna make the most sense?' What he stood for was stopping the gang violence. He was from 6th and Crip, but he loved gang members, he loved Bloods, he loved YG. The bond that he had with the hood in different neighborhoods was impeccable. He was like Street Soldier. So I wanted to make a record, first of all, giving him love and showing what he was about and then translating his spirit into a song that could be the reason we should do it in his vain."
