Video: Snoop Dogg Talks “That Tree ft. Kid Cudi” Music Video

“We did a cold video for that song,” Snoop told Mixtape Daily. “I like working with Kid Cudi. To me, he’s fun, dynamic, a brand-new style of MC. He gives hip-hop what it’s missing right now, being fun and getting back to what it used to be. Everybody don’t have to frown up and tell a story about going to jail, getting shot, having hard times. It can be fun sometimes. To me, his music represents that. His persona represents that. I hung out with him a few times, and he’s really my nephew. He calls me Uncle Snoop. I’m happy we had a chance to work together.”

“We search the whole globe trying to find happiness, and sometimes, it sits right there in front of us in that tree. That’s what the song is about; that’s what the video is about. It’s an imagination video where it’s 3-D and you see things coming to life.”

After the jump, Snoop on Last Call w/ Carson Daly talking about the Malice N Wonderland movie and his superhero role in it.

He explains that his superpower comes from a device on his hand (first seen in the ‘That Tree’ artwork,) which he uses to create bullet-stopping force fields & emit “high-pitch soundwaves that inflict pain”…

    Co-sign Internal Affairs being ill. I remember that came out within two weeks of Black on Both Sides. Rawkus was putting out some incredible music for a hot second.

  3. hl Says:

    anyone have albums specifically that i can listen to?

    Pharoah Monch: Internal Affairs

    and, Organized Konfusion – Stress: The Extinction Agenda

    ^This…Some of the best lyrics I ever heard on The extinction Agenda. Hopefully that duckdown project turns out dope.

    Indeed.

    Somebody should make a compilation album called “We Rap To Keep From Killing Ya’ll” and feature:

    Foxxx
    Maino
    Tru Life
    Tony Yayo
    Uncle Murder
    C-Murder
    whoever that dude was who killed that person and ate their internal organs
    and Chi Ali on the albums outro, on a song called “Too Late For Me”

    if you’re down on your luck, your 1 up on people on an even keel.

    Part of me does too. But the other part of me hates him for destroying Cam’Ron creatively and emotionally. Niggas forget, Cam was like two diss vids away from having Curtis’ head on a spic and standing on the Empire State Builing with it. But then he got snuffed, and things were never the same.

    Do 50 and Tru Life have any connection that we’re not aware of?

    I think so. And I need to add Max B to the album.

    Uncle Murda is too real…like his gun lyrics are too cold…he needs to water that shit down before he catches a charge.

  31. Remixznflow Says:

    so at the end of the day.. i went and got the whole discography…

    it was packaged with desire and the rest (ayo)

    least i have something to listen to for the rest of the day..

    No doubt. It’s during these times that you really get to know who you are and what you stand for. The character building that shitty times bring is essential to emotional growth. If one wilts away during these periods, they wouldnt have made it even if said situations hadnt occurred.

    lol word to that “Shooting at the Cops” song. I used to have to turn that shit down at the traffic light.

  34. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    Also, somebody needs to do a mixtape called Phone Tap. It would be all incarcerated rappers rapping over the phone.

  37. b-ease Says:

    Two things that get Dewill aggy:

    1.) Rick Ross standom
    2.) anti-50 rhetoric

    You’ve been warned. Keep in mind, this nigga is from a part of the country where sharecropping is still a viable source of income, and who knows what that does to one’s psyche.
