Nigga, you? (In Nas’ “Ether” voice)
On Friday, March 16, 2018, the good Lord saw fit to release music for the homies through his shepherd, Snoop Dogg. Pun intended. Because shepherd ... and dog. You get it? Right. Snoop Dogg, aka the artist formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dogg, aka Snoop Lion, aka Calvin Broadus of Doggystyle, Murder Was the Case and…
When I got a press email announcing that Snoop Dogg had a gospel project, a double album titled Bible of Love, on the horizon, I immediately took a screenshot of the message and forwarded it to a few friends and posed the same question: “When did that nigga get saved?”
There are a few albums in my life that have held pivotal roles: De La Soul’s De La Soul Is Dead, A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders, N.W.A.’s EFIL4ZAGGIN and Outkast’s Aquemini, to name a few. Another of those pivotal albums, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, was released on Dec. 15, 1992, exactly 25 years ago today.
From the Temptations’ “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” to John Coltrane’s “My Favorite Things” to Oscar Peterson’s “White Christmas,” black folks have contributed to the sonic landscape of the Christmas holiday in unforgettable fashion.
I stopped watching broadcast news five years ago, after a sex crime was reported in close proximity to where I live. The local news was beginning to feel like trauma porn and was much too close to home.
Remember the pottery scene from Ghost, where Molly Jensen and Sam Wheat are provocatively making a bowl or something? Well, here’s a bit of imagery that you probably didn’t ask for: Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg getting all close in order to ice a cake.
When will these white folks learn that being black adjacent doesn’t mean they can say any form of the n-word or even “Negro”?
In what can only be described as the most covfefe’s of all covfefe’s, Baby Boy 2 might actually be a thing. What’s that you say? You didn’t know Baby Boy 2 was even a possibility because why would anybody sequelize (surprisingly, “sequelize” is a real word, in the same vein that Pinnochio was a real boy) a move that…
Long Beach, Calif., rapper and entertainer Snoop Dogg will be on hand with other celebrities to help raise money for the Flint, Mich., water crisis during the second annual Hoop 4 Water celebrity basketball game next month. According to MLive, the event is organized by the Morris Peterson Jr. Foundation and is…
At last night’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fete, Snoop Dogg inducted late, great rap icon Tupac Shakur into the newest class, which included Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Baez and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, who was given the Award for Musical Excellence.
It’s one thing to make a parody video about how clown-tastic the president is, the way Snoop Dogg did in “Lavender.” But it’s another for someone to go on television and suggest that Snoop Dogg should be killed. And that’s exactly what Fox News pundit Kimberly Guilfoyle did over the weekend.
Steve Harvey just won’t stop caping for President Vladimir TrumPutin. At this point I’m fine with the Family Feud host being traded for a future draft pick, and I feel safe in saying his cookout credentials have been revoked.
Shortly after tweeting about fake news regarding his 2005 tax returns, Donald Trump turned his attention to more important news: a rapper’s music video. Apparently, Trump has finally gotten wind of Snoop Dogg’s video for “Lavender,” which depicts Trump as a clown president (life imitating art) with Snoop aiming a gun…
The video for Canadian group BadBadNotGood’s song “Lavender,” featuring Snoop Dogg and Kaytranada, is catching criticism after Snoop Dogg assassinated a clownlike Trump character.
The Los Angeles food-delivery service Trap Kitchen taped a cooking demo with Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg on Monday at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Chefs Malachi “Spanky” Jenkins and Roberto "News" Smith made one of Snoop’s favorite Trap Kitchen dishes.
In keeping with the stereotype that Black folks are always late, BET aired the 2014 Hip-Hop Awards last night something like three weeks after it filmed in Atlanta. Why? My guess is because there's usually a fight or twelve at the hip-hop awards and BET wanted the ability to edit it out, ya know, just in case. Can't…
