Dubcnn has part 1 of a new Snoop interview up. Normally I wouldn’t post this, because Snoop doesn’t usually have anything particularly interesting to say (although he has been talking a little greasier than normal lately), but there were a couple of things that grabbed my attention. For one, he mentions that he was recently talking to Nas about doing a movie:
I was holla’ing at Nas the other night. Me and him was just chopping game and I was like "You know what? Cuzz, look what’s happening right now. The West and the East, we ain’t even in the game right now!" He was like "Yeah." I was like "I don’t like it!" and he was like "I don’t like it either!" I’m like "So what you and me need to do is a muthafuckin’ movie, fuck a record! Let’s make us a movie to show two bad niggas from the East and the West, and that would definitely bring that shit back home where it needs to be."
Uhh, no it wouldn’t. First off, neither one of you characters can act your way out of an empty weed baggie. Second of all, what makes you think a movie, even if on the odd chance it comes out halfway decent, is gonna do what so many albums and rappers have tried to do and failed? And while we’re on the subject, what exactly does the act of bringing your region/city back entail? When and how do you know that your region/city is actually back? The reality is when a rapper says he wants to bring something back to somewhere, what he actually means is he wants people to start buying his albums again. Well, Snoop I love you, but your last album sucked, and the same goes for you Nasir. You guys are now over thinking this thing to the point where you’re holding yourselves back. I know it’s been said before, but just make dope music and stop worrying about where you rank on the food chain.
Sidenote: Snoop also announces that he will soon be appointed CEO of Koch West, which technically, doesn’t even exist yet.
