The man, the myth, the legend: Snoop Dogg.
Per a new Q&A with Rolling Stone, it appears the iconic rapper and weed aficionado has a bit more up his sleeve these days. In the interview, he discussed his recently released album Coolaid, his new TV show with Martha Stewart called Martha and Snoop's Dinner Party, and his views on police violence and Donald Trump, who Snoop (unsurprisingly) doesn’t like.
The juiciest piece of information came when Snoop made some remarks about Dr. Dre. “That's my big bro. We're older now. When we used to hang out, it used to be about music, going to a party, girls, clubbing. Now it's about perfection because we have a legacy and a dynasty that we don't want to mess up. We got a couple of things we're cooking up.”
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie & Earl Sweatshirt: Best of the Week
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie, and Earl Sweatshirt, among others, had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.
When asked if that would include a tour, Snoop offered an epic reply:
“I think that makes sense more than anything. A Snoop-Dre album would be amazing, but a tour even more, because we have legendary music the world has yet to see us perform globally. I'm pretty sure he wants to do it. He just wants the team in place. Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre – that's the dream team for him.”
Obviously, a Snoop-Dre album would be incredible, but a Dre-lead tour with Snoop, Em and Kendrick—three of Doc's four most successful artists—would be pure madness. While Snoop and Dre come from the same era, Em and Kendrick represent other moments entirely, with each rapper bringing countless hits to the table.
After Mick Jenkins played us all yesterday (September 14), telling a fan that he had a project in the works with Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, I was spent. I can’t take any more empty promises. I’m hoping this isn’t another castle in the air—because if anyone could make this kind of monumental tour happen, it’d be Dre and Snoop.
