Imagine a magnificent future in which Snoop Dogg decided not to make a dumb documentary about converting to Snoop Lionism and put out a half-baked reggae album, and instead decided to follow his “Sensual Eruption” muse down the rabbit hole of thoroughly blunted electro-funk. Sounds pretty great, no? Well. Here’s “Faden Away” the first single […]

Each week in Sample Wars, we’ll pit two songs which sample the same source material head-to-head against each other, to determine which one rocked the sample better. Both of this week’s contestants are aging rap legends who’ve spent a lot of time in headlines recently: Jay-Z, for his trip to Cuba, “Open Letter,” and sale of […]

Each week in Sample Wars, we’ll pit two songs which sample the same source material head-to-head against each other, to determine which one rocked the sample better. This week, we’ll take a look at David McCallum’s “The Edge,” which spawned Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” and Masta Ace’s “No Regrets.” “The Edge, “David McCallum (1967): […]

As a white guy barreling towards middle-age, naturally I decided to go solo to a Snoop Dogg show at Terminal 5 Monday night. After printing my ticket, I noticed the Doggfather was sharing top-billing with Wiz Khalifa. I don’t know a lot about Wiz but figured he’ll do a few songs and bow out to […]

Artist/collagist extraordinaire Artist Jason Mecier makes mixed-media pieces from pieces of garbage, candy, electronic junk, yarn, whatnot with striking likenesses to Donald Trump, Andy Warhol, Anna Nicole Smith and whonot. This particular $1,500 Snoop specimen is made of joints, loose weed, etc., and looks like it took a lot of work and self-control. (Click to […]

Lance Armstong said he’s retiring (again) after this year’s Tour de France, but this time he means it! The grueling race begins in a few days and in the meantime, Snoop Dogg made this rather surprisingly bizarre send off video for the cycling great. […]

Snoop Dogg, last seen kicking it with Mike Tyson and the cast of Jersey Shore, was a guest on the Colbert Report last night, where he explained to Stephen how his being a “stoner” is totally legit because he’s got a prescription from a doctor for his weed. He then performed a new track off […]

This pic of Snoop Dogg and Mike Tyson hanging with Snooki, The Situation, J-Woww and Pauly-D from Jersey Shore was taken backstage at the Spike TV video game awards over the weekend. Good lord this is awesome. In other Snoop news, he’s is making a guest-starring appearance on an upcoming episode of One Life to […]

Poster ads out of Cairo by Lowe Egypt for H2O Audio waterproof iPod cases. Snoop’s surfer caricature is totally (sorry) The Shizzle. The Material Girl’s is…yikes!…not at all flattering. As obsessed as Madonna is with her image, this mocking image by illustrator Mohamed Algendy would not please her Madgesty. Maybe her wishy-washy devotion to Kabbalah […]
