Snoop Dogg and Jamie Foxx freestyle an entire song on radio show and nail it
It’s no bloody secret that when you’ve got Snoop Dogg on your radio show, you’re hoping for some pure gold. You want the hip-hop legend to give you something that’ll make his interview with you truly bloody special. I mean, sure, the dude is always gonna be chill-as-f**k, he’s gonna talk weed, and he might even name-drop some legends, but what you really want is for him to lay down a few bars…
If that’s the kinda shiznit that’s gonna put some blood in ya pencil and some stiff in your stiffy, you probably wanna check out Snoop’s grouse interview with Sway in the Morning. Not only did the veteran rapper grace the show with his presence, but Hollywood royalty, Jamie Foxx was on the show too.
The interview features some great discussion about Snoop Dogg’s latest album, Bible of Love, but it also saw Snoop reminisce about the old days, Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, and his ongoing relationship with Suge Knight – the legendary co-founder of the seminal Death Row Records label. It will probably please some of you blokes and blokettes to know that Snoop still says he ‘loves him’.
Of course, the highlight of the show was Jamie Foxx’s visit. The two shared a shit-tonne of stories about the old days – including the time they collaborated while under the influence. This led to the challenge of an impromptu collaboration. In response, the two smashed it.
Foxx took the hooks with some silky vocals. Snoop spat some lyrics over two verses of the Isley Brothers original For the Love of You. Along the way, he responded to some of internet oddity Woah Vickey’s earlier mentions of him They had somethin’ on the internet/About a White girl, but I didn’t get upset, I just chilled/I just didn’t pay attention, and kept to my mention.”
Final thought: You’ve gotta bloody love this sort of thing. In my mind, radio’s never better than when artists are performing live, and to have two legends like this collaborating with such ease and charm is a definite winner.
