Snoop Dogg is one hell of an O.G. He started rapping in 1982, and came up through the ranks with Tupac, Dr. Dre, and the notorious (not BIG) Suge Knight. Snoop’s career as a rapper, actor, and marijuana investor has provided endless hours of entertainment for all of us.
He is a role model for money aspiring rappers, all of which he considers family—“nephews,” according to Snoop. Perhaps now he can be considered a philosopher too. The Doggfather has some interesting insights and predictions in this mini-documentary.
Snoop Talks Tupac
“Rap is Here to Stay and Not to Die. His (Tupac) pen sometimes wrote the story of the future. And it told a story of what is going to be as opposed to what it is and now it is prophesized you’re starting to see it and you are starting to hear it. He wrote about whats happening today—he seen it.” (sic)
“I want to be the Elvis of rap. I don’t know how you could perceive that—the reason I say that is, he been dead for 20 years and they still wont let him rest, cause they have so much respect for his music, and thats what I want.”(sic)
Stay Focused on Your Dream
“I was dedicated to this dream. My homies was pushing me saying you dope cuz, but I wasn’t makin’ any money so I can’t be that dope. Hip hop loved and appreciated me for so long and that’s why Im around—that’s why I’m legendary.”(sic)
Snoop Talks Losing Some Friends
“Closing the gap has to be them catching up to you. If they don’t catch up, you got to leave them behind. Everybody ain’t gonna be a star.”(sic)
Snoop Dogg has certainly worked hard in his life to achieve what he has. He speaks like he has seen it all, and offers up some unique advice—thanks to DeviatedDocs for putting together this documentary.
