Snoop Dogg recognises Black creators in music video for ‘Make Some Money’

The video for ‘Make Some Money’, which dropped overnight (November 27), sees Dogg and the track’s collaborators, Fabolous and Dave East, posing in an art gallery. The clip features  various fine art pieces by notable artists (per Revolt.tv) such as Brianne Rose Brooks, Azikiwe Mohammad, Mark Thomas Gibson, William Villalongo and Devin Troy Strother.

Take a look below:

As well as Dogg’s work with Fabolous and Dave East, ‘The Alogrithm’ is made up of no less than 25 tracks contributed by Dogg and a plethora of hot names – Mary J Blige, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Blxst to name but a few.

Ahead of the album’s drop, Dogg released single ‘Big Subwoofer’ with Mount Westmore, the supergroup made up of himself, Ice Cube, E-40 and Too $hort. Singles ‘Murder Music’ (featuring rappers Benny the Butcher, Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes) and ‘Like My Weed’ (with Jane Handcock) dropped earlier this month.

NME awarded ‘The Algorithm’ three stars upon release, saying it “brings hip-hop lovers of all ages together”.

“‘Algorithm’ will probably appeal more to the older hip-hop cynics, though anyone who grew up in a house where their parents played ‘California Love’ or ‘It Was A Good Day’ will also revel in the nostalgia offered by the record.”

Snoop Dogg and Problem urge people to get their “mind right” on new track ‘Dim My Light’

Problem adds: “Don’t be so defensive, boy, the truth just sound like poetry/ I guarantee this talk gon’ put your ass right where you’re supposed to be/ But right now, I’ma keep it clean, bro/ I got too much goin’ on, I can’t be playin’ with my time, you know?”

Premiered yesterday (October 2) on Sirius XM’s Hip Hop Nation, you can listen to the track in full below:

Last week it was announced that Snoop will be joining Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar as performers at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Snoop Dogg claims to run popular NFT Twitter account

 

 

I am @CozomoMedici

— Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) September 20, 2021

Since launching in August, the account – named after famed Italian banker and patron of the arts Cosimo de’ Medici – has attracted major interest in the NFT world, partly due to the huge sums changing hands. According to @CozomoMedici’s OpenSea account, they currently own over 140 NFTs, some of which were purchased for millions of dollars in the cryptocurrency Ethereum.

Clues that Snoop is indeed behind the account include the fact that many of the NFTs listed on OpenSea are cannabis-themed – including a GIF of a cat smoking a joint which Snoop later made his Twitter avatar – and that the account’s posts always conclude with a wine emoji, linking into one of Snoop’s other popular ventures.

In March, the 49-year-old rapper announced his first NFT collection, ‘A Journey With The Dogg,’ on Crypto.com. The eight-piece collection included “memories from his early years with art inspired by the NFT movement,” as well as an original track titled ‘NFT’.

Earlier today (September 23), Snoop hit out at the 2021 Emmys for failing to award any actor of colour.

Despite a record-breaking 49 non-white nominees, white actors took home all 12 of the lead and supporting actor and actress categories across comedy, drama, and limited series.

The rapper has now taken to Instagram to criticise the Emmys. “Then U wonder why I say fuckall these bullshit ass award shows they not for us Emmy these nuts in ya mouth,” the rapper wrote with a a photo of nearly 40 Black and POC actors who were nominated.

Russell Simmons and Snoop Dogg team up to make NFT for hip hop pioneers

He continued, saying the aim of the project is to “make sure I draw attention to the founding fathers. So now that I’ve started, I have to do a documentary, a book and start to really make sure these NFTs sell and these guys make the money.

“Some…don’t even have bank accounts and we wouldn’t even be here without them. We’re standing on the shoulders of people who are struggling in many cases. This is why I wanted to do it.”

Speaking about Snoop Dogg’s involvement, Simmons continued: ““He’s helping to curate. So I got him involved early because I’m in business with Snoop on a number of things. And also, he cares about those guys. When he hears a story about a founding father of Hip Hop, he gets quiet and listens. He’s a heartfelt person who cares.

“A lot of artists when they’re really young, sometimes they don’t care, and when they get older, most of the time they still don’t care. But Snoop was very, very in tune with giving back and that’s why he got involved.

“He’s going to do an NFT and everything, but it’s not about what he does, it’s his curation of it and his adding credibility to it that I’m incredibly grateful for.”

Outside of his business ventures, Snoop made headlines earlier this month for giving some excellent commentary for the Equestrian event at the Tokyo Olympics.

It was also reported earlier this year that Snoop is working on an anthology series about his life and career.

While ‘Glory’ might not have a release date at present, West is reported to be releasing his long-awaited album ‘DONDA’ tomorrow (August 6). The rapper will hold a second listening party for the record at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium tonight (5), where he has been living and finishing up work on the LP since his last preview event in July.

Earlier today, the star launched a livestream on Apple Music from his room at the stadium, which appeared to show him finishing ‘DONDA’. During the stream, fans watched West workout, be visited by frequent collaborator Mike Dean, Steve Lacy, Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, and sleep.

Snoop Dogg is developing an anthology series about his life and career

“But I think what makes the most sense to me is the ‘Snoop Dogg anthology’, the life story of Snoop Dogg, where it starts with my mother and father meeting each other before I was even born, to me being born, to me growing through the ‘70s and ‘80s and the ‘90s,” he explained.

“Me being the ‘Black Forest Gump’, so to speak, seeing me in all of these highlighted moments in American history.”

Snoop went on to confirm that the anthology series is currently being developed. “[We’re] putting it together as we speak, just trying to take my time and put the right information out,” he said.

“I don’t want to rush to it just because [Straight Outta Compton] was successful, just to come behind it. I want to take my time and make sure that I’ve put together the right infrastructure of how I became me – you know, the people that inspire me, my upbringing, my mother, my father, my friends, community influences, inspirations that shaped and molded me.”

The rapper said that the project is unlikely to take the form of a biopic, “because I can’t give all of this great information and entertainment in two hours. But if I give it to you in an anthology, you’re likely to get six or seven seasons of this.”

Snoop said that the show would begin by detailing his childhood throughout the 1970s before depicting the ’80s “when the cocaine, drugs, violence, my teenage years and all of the things that were brought to our community by the government and the C.I.A”.

“But when we were living in that life, in that era, we didn’t know why we were being given guns and drugs out of nowhere,” he added.

Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg spoke about how he would approach casting someone to play him a future biopic about himself: “It would have to be someone who could win me over.”

Snoop Dogg joins D-Nice on funky ‘No Plans For Love’ remix

Now, the DJ, whose real name is Derrick Jones, has returned to putting out original music. Last month, he released the original version of ‘No Plans For Love’, featuring guest spots from Ne-Yo and Kent Jones, and he’s now put out a remix with Snoop Dogg.

Listen to the ‘No Plans For Love’ remix below:

Last week, Snoop paid an emotional tribute to his late friend and fellow rapper DMX following the legendary rapper’s death.

Appearing on the Today show, Snoop paid an emotional tribute to DMX, likening him to an angel.

“I’d like to say that DMX was wanting to glorify his relationship with God, and he was always pushing the right thing, and he was always trying to help other people,” he said in a brief clip. “And that leads me to believe that’s why God chose His angel to come back home with him. He did his time out here.

He continued: “He did what he was supposed to do. He influenced, he inspired and he represented. So, DMX, his soul will live on and his music will live on, as well. We thank you, brother, for what you brought to us.”

Meanwhile, the new season two trailer for Mythic Quest has been released and it features Snoop Dogg.

Back in February, Snoop spoke about who he’d like to play him if a biopic of his life was ever made.

Speaking to AP Entertainment, Snoop said: “There’s so many dope actors that have graced the screen and there’s so many dope actors that have yet to grace the screen.

“I don’t know who could play me. It would have to be someone who could win me over.

“When I think of someone playing you, I think of how Jamie Foxx played Ray [Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray]. That was, like, spot on,” he continued.

Anwan Glover (Notorious, 2009), LaKeith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton, 2015) and Jarrett Ellis (All Eyez on Me, 2017) have all portrayed Snoop on the big screen in the past.

Offset responds to Snoop Dogg’s criticism of ‘WAP’: “We talk about the same shit”

Offset has now responded to the rapper’s comments, saying he hates when men “get in female[’s] business”.

“It’s entertainment, you know what I’m saying?” the Migos rapper told TMZ. “That’s a Number One record. Anybody can say what they wanna say. That’s six-time platinum in three or four months.

 

“As rappers, we talk about the same shit. It’s a lot of woman empowerment, don’t shoot it down. We’ve never had this many artists that’s female artists running this shit. They catching up to us, passing us, setting records. ”

Offset added that he wasn’t dissing Snoop Dogg, but told “all men” to “stay out of women business”. “We should uplift our women and don’t tell them they can or can’t do something,” he said. “Do you know how long women been told they can’t do something or they shouldn’t do this, or they’re blackballed out of entertainment?”

Meanwhile, Cardi B was given the Billboard Woman Of The Year 2020 award last week (December 10) and referenced the controversy around ‘WAP’ in her speech.

NME has also named the track the Song Of The Year 2020, writing: “Dangerously horny in a way that speaks directly to the casual sex bans of the lockdown age, ‘WAP’ was the titan track that drenched the entire year. Bring a bucket and a mop.”

Earlier this month (November 1), Snoop announced he’ll be releasing a new album called ‘Take It From A G’ in December.

The rapper shared the news on Instagram in a video that features a toy low-rider, decked out in purple and gold L.A. Lakers colours, driving around the streets while an untitled song plays in the background.

Snoop’s new album follows the release of last year’s ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, which includes the track ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones’, where he pays tribute to one-time enemy Suge Knight.

The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ star also recently criticised Donald Trump by calling him a “racist” who is “disrespecting every colour”.

Snoop told the US president to earn the public’s votes in the lead up to the 2020 US election, which was ultimately won by Joe Biden – despite various protestations and legal challenges from Trump.

Ty Dolla $ign “honoured” to be hailed “the new Nate Dogg” by Snoop Dogg

“I feel like Nate Dogg was carrying a huge torch and he passed it down.”

He added: “It’ll be passed on again, so I just encourage for the next artist out there to be yourself – be a one of one. There’s a lot of people that sound like the next artist, but it’s always good to hear somebody that is original and I encourage it.”

You can listen to the full conversation above.

Nate Dogg, whose real name was Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, died back in 2011 at the age of 41. He was one of Snoop’s closest collaborators, and also worked with the likes of  EminemLudacrisTupac Shakur and Warren G.

Following his passing, Snoop hailed Nate as “one of my best friends” and “a true legend in hip-hop and R&B”. “I love you buddy. You will always be with me forever and a day,” he added.

In a four-star review of ‘Featuring Ty Dolla $ign’, NME wrote: “…It’s a victory lap for Ty Dolla $ign’s quietly influential career to date, the sound of an artist embracing the worldview he has helped to curate.”

Snoop Dogg joins Dame D.O.L.L.A. for new track that pays tribute to Kobe Bryant

The track, which also features Derrick Milano, appears on the soundtrack for the new video game NBA 2K21. Lillard is the game’s cover star.

Listen to ‘Kobe!’ below:

Last month, on August 23, which marked what would have been Kobe Bryant’s 42nd birthday, Nike released a tribute video to the legendary NBA player narrated by Kendrick Lamar.

Starting off with some clips of Bryant in action, the five-time NBA champion can be heard saying: “You wake up every single day to get better today than you were yesterday.”

From then, Lamar starts a monologue about being better. “Better dreamer. Better waker. Better stretcher. Better walker. Better talker. Better walking the walk and talking the talk,” he begins.

As Lamar continues, the clip features numerous other athletes in action. It then goes on to show people marching and protesting.

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg has criticised Donald Trump by calling him a “racist” who is “disrespecting every colour”.

He added: “With that being said, the people that voted for him got exactly what they wanted. They gave them what he said he was gon’ do.

“So, the next motherfucker, you better tell us what we gon’ get for your vote. You better show up and deliver, period. We just want some peace, love, equality, and tranquillity for everybody. All lives. Just basic conversation. Now carry on.”

This isn’t the first time Snoop has spoken up against Trump – earlier this year he revealed that he would be voting for the first time solely to help see Trump out of office.

During an appearance on Real 93.3’s Big Boy’s Neighbourhood, Snoop admitted that he has not voted in an election before because he thought his criminal record prevented it, following his drug and gun charge conviction.

“I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged so now I can vote,” he said, adding, “I ain’t never voted a day in my life, but this year I think I’m going to get out and vote because I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year,” he said of Trump.

And Snoop is not alone. Rapper Cardi B, earlier this year, branded Donald Trump a “terrorist” following a January airstrike against Iran.

She previously claimed that she hates the US President with a “fucking passion”.

Snoop Dogg shares Nipsey Hussle tribute song, ‘Nipsey Blue’

Watch the video for ‘Nipsey Blue’ below.

Snoop Dogg and Nipsey Hussle appeared on a host of songs together over the years, including ‘The Life’, ‘Do The Damn Thang’ and ‘Ice Cream Paint Job (West Coast Remix)’.

Hussle died in March 2019 after being fatally shot last year outside his Marathon clothing store on Crenshaw Boulevard in Los Angeles. A documentary based on the late rapper, directed by Ava DuVernay, is set to come to Netflix following his death.

In the wake of his death, Hussle’s family recently unveiled the Neighborhood Nip Foundation in his honour, an initiative that seeks to provide opportunities for young creatives in music. A huge Nipsey Hussle tribute was also held at the 2020 Grammys earlier this year, with Meek MillJohn LegendDJ Khaled and more all coming together to celebrate Hussle’s life and career.

Another documentary related to the rapper, called The Mysterious Murder of Nipsey Hussle, has been released on BBC Three. Speaking to NME about the film, director Ben Zand said: “When someone lived such a purposeful life, it’s hard to accept they didn’t experience a purposeful death, too.

“The idea that someone like Tupac Shakur or Nipsey Hussle could be killed because they were caught up in avoidable gang violence doesn’t make sense to a lot of people. We wanted to show with this documentary that the young black people who believe in Nipsey Hussle conspiracy theories aren’t just crazies.”

Snoop Dogg confirms Jay-Z wrote Dr Dre’s ‘Still D.R.E.’ in full

“He wrote Dre’s shit and my shit and it was flawless,” he told The Breakfast Club. “It was ‘Still D.R.E.’ and it was Jay-Z and he wrote the whole fucking song.”

During his Breakfast Club interview, Snoop talked about how Dre flew Jay-Z out and he wrote ALL of “Still Dre” in under a hour pic.twitter.com/9TKJHXlbq1

— GlockTopickz (@Glock_Topickz) July 29, 2020

Snoop added: “Jay-Z is a great writer to begin with for himself, so imagine him striking it for someone he truly loves and appreciates. He loves Dr. Dre and that’s what his pen showed you, that I can’t write for you if I don’t love you.”

He also revealed in the same interview that Eminem didn’t make the cut in his list of the top 10 rappers of all time.

“Eminem! ‘The Great White Hope’. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that one thou-wow,” Snoop said. “[Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position where he would be considered one of the top 10 rappers ever.

Advertisement

“I don’t think so, but the game feels like that he’s top 10 lyricists and all that that comes with it. That’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre. and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem that he could find.”

Asked why Eminem doesn’t make his top 10 list, Snoop went on to list a number of rappers who he rates higher than the Detroit artist.

“There’s some n****s in the 80s that [Eminem] can’t fuck with,” Snoop continued. “Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J … Like Ice Cube.”

He said “it is what it is”, but maintained that Eminem “did that to the fullest” and is still “one of my teammates, one of my brothers”.

“But when you’re talking about this hip-hop shit that I can’t live without, I can live without that.”

A post shared by snoopdogg (@snoopdogg) on Jun 26, 2020 at 11:58pm PDT

It comes after West teased last year that he and Dre were working on a sequel to his ‘Jesus Is King’ album. “Ye and Dre Jesus is King Part II coming soon,” the hip-hop titan tweeted, sharing a picture of them both in the studio.

Whether the pair were working on music for ‘Jesus Is King Part II’ has not been confirmed, but West did tweet that they were “finishing [their] first project,” hash tagging it “#WESTDAYEVER.”

“IM SORRY DOCTOR DRE I SPILT THESE THREE DROPS OF ORANGE JUICE MIXED WITH UUUUUUM WHILE WE WERE FINISHING OUR FIRST PROJECT#WESTDAYEVER,” he tweeted.

Both West and Dre have worked with other huge names in hip-hop including Jay-Z and Nas but have not worked together so closely before.

Ye has made his admiration clear for Dre in the past. In a 2010 Rolling Stone article he recalled how overwhelmed he was when he met the Californian rapper/producer.

“I first met Dre in December of 2003. He asked me to produce a track for The Game,” West said. “At first I was star-struck, but within 30 minutes I was begging him to mix my next album. He’s the definition of a true talent: Dre feels like God placed him here to make music, and no matter what forces are aligned against him, he always ends up on the mountaintop.”

Meanwhile, Gap has partnered with Kanye West and Yeezy – his fashion company – to create a new clothing line.

The new line, which is called Yeezy Gap, will be introduced in the first half of 2021, both companies confirmed Friday (June 26).

As The New York Times reports, Yeezy will follow West’s direction to create“modern, elevated basics for men, women and kids at accessible price points.”

Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson are releasing a new song together

You can see the full interview here.

Recently (June 5) Snoop Dogg revealed he has never voted before because he had been “brainwashed” into thinking he couldn’t.

The rapper shared his thoughts on voting in a new radio interview, saying he would now cast his first vote later this year.

While talking with 92.3’s Big Boy, Snoop was asked for his views on people who say voting doesn’t work for them. He replied: “I ain’t never voted a day in my life, but this year I think Imma get out and vote because I can’t stand to see this punk in office one more year.”

“For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote cause you had a criminal record,” he said. “I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.” Citizens with a criminal record are not allowed to vote if they are in prison but have that right restored in most US states once their sentence is complete.

The rapper recently was one of a number of big names who used his platform to encourage fans to vote in the presidential primaries. Votes took place in the District of Columbia, New Mexico, Iowa, South Dakota and Montana on Tuesday (June 3).

“Rescheduled primaries also took place in Indiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island after they were postponed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Snoop Dogg says he’s never voted because he was “brainwashed” into thinking he couldn’t

After Big Boy referenced how the rapper could encourage his fans to get out and vote too, Snoop shared that he thought he had been excluded from the voting process. “For many years they had me brainwashed thinking that you couldn’t vote cause you had a criminal record,” he said. “I didn’t know that. My record’s been expunged, so now I can vote.”

Citizens with a criminal record are not allowed to vote if they are in prison but have that right restored in most US states once their sentence is complete.

Snoop continued to say he would “definitely” vote in 2020 because “we gotta make a difference”. “I can’t talk about it and not be about it,” he said. “I can’t tell you to do it and then don’t go do it. Everybody know I’m a frontliner. I ain’t gonna tell you to do something I didn’t do.”

Snoop Dogg challenges Jay-Z to Instagram Live ‘VERZUZ’ showdown

 

“Biggie passed away, then Nas had it for a minute and then JAY-Z took it and ran with it for a numerous amount of years,” Snoop told Fat Joe.

“Then 50 Cent came and ran with it for his numerous amount of years. This is me looking at it from the outside, looking at New York rap. So for me, it would be Snoop vs. JAY-Z because he had been the King of New York around the same time I’ve been the King of the West.”

In an interview with NME last month (April 4) talking about VERZUZ, Swizz Beatz said: “It’s not really a battle – it’s a celebration of our heroes in music, the ones who make us feel a certain type of way.

“Given what’s currently going on in the world, it’s a way to give back. It’s also an education, it’s educating people on the music, its creators and where this feeling comes from.”

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – All I Need (feat. Gucci Mane) lyrics

[Intro: Gucci Mane]
Dimitri, Mike and Gucci

[Verse 1]
Laying on the front line, vibing to the bass drums
Sipping on a 40
And someone’s on the rooftop, lighting up like Snoop Dogg
And it’s only Tuesday
I just wanna have a good time in the city shine lights, baby, baby
I don’t need, I don’t need nothing else
I don’t need, I don’t need nothing else

[Chorus]
We don’t have to wake up ’cause we didn’t sleep
I still got a full cup of that Hennessy
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life
5AM and we still feeling reckless
Piled up in the whip getting breakfast
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life

[Post-Chorus]
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life

[Verse 2: Gucci Mane]
I just wanna show you how to win, let me coach ya
I’m just tryna train ya, baby, turn you to my soldier
Tryna help you prosper, I’m a trap prophet
You know they really poppin’, they don’t really got it
I just wanna see you shop, shop ’til you drop
Pull out with the title top, drop out the lot
She don’t wanna leave the Wop, she know the night good
So watch the plot thick, so does Gucci’s heart thick

[Chorus]
We don’t have to wake up ’cause we didn’t sleep
I still got a full cup of that Hennessy
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life
5AM and we still feeling reckless
Piled up in the whip getting breakfast
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life

[Post-Chorus]
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life

[Bridge]
I just wanna have a good time in the city shine lights, baby, baby
I don’t need, I don’t need nothing else
I don’t need, I don’t need nothing else

[Chorus]
We don’t have to wake up ’cause we didn’t sleep
I still got a full cup of that Hennessy
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life
5AM and we still feeling reckless
Piled up in the whip getting breakfast
All my friends by my side
It’s all I need in my life

Chris Miles – Wake Up

[Intro]
So sick of playing these games, it’s
Impossible for me to ever ever be happy, yeah
And I’m so sick of doing the same shit
I just wanna sleep a tad bit, more
More, more, more

[Verse 1]
I don’t want to die
I’m in a elevator with Snoop Dogg and I just got a contact high
So everything better except the cheddar except when
I start to close my eyes, or did I already close my eyes
I don’t even know if I’m dreaming, I ain’t no genius
Got anxiety from my brain to my penis
Man I know that I’m sleeping
So why the hell am I stressed??
This is usually the way that I’m escaping the best?
It’s kinda like, kinda like…
Like a coping method
No prevention, I just want the pain to be less
Like, like

[Chorus]
Oh, you sleeping?
Wake up, wake up
You know that you are facing the death and by napping so quit the bullshit and wake up
This is not the way to resolve all your problems, you coward, just stop it and wake up
Either way you gon’ be hating your day so you might aswell stop and wake up

[Verse 2]
Imma stay asleep till I’m senior
Hop on all these fences where the grass is never greener
Got a girl on my mind named Christina
We netflix and chill when like no one can see us
So why would I wake up?
Got no reason
No five old, on my mind I’m cheesing
I do what I want till I’m not even breathing
I wake up on weekends like strictly for tweaking
I take off my week, this is made of my bitch
People would stalking, they oftenly switch
So I close off my mind, pay no mind to that shit, yeah, yeah
It is what it is
Either hit or you miss
See them flickin their wrists
I’m too busy with this
So be worried about that
Stuck in my mind, I’m checked
Let it ride, yeah, yeah

[Outro]
Let it ride (skrt, skrt)
Let it ride
Let it ride (aye)
