Snoop Dogg joined Fatman Scoop for an interview on Instagram, conversing with the rapper and radio character about his associations with both Notorious B.I.G. what’s more, 2Pac. The West Coast legend detailed exactly how much love Biggie had for 2Pac, and regardless of whether they had one of hip-jump’s most prominent quarrels that lead to paranoid notions encompassing every rapper’s unsolved homicide, that it would have at last been settled had their less than ideal deaths not happened.
Snoop Dogg commenced the interview talking about associating with B.I.G. after both 2Pac’s passing and the drive-by shooting during Snoop and The Dogg Pound’s “New York, New York” music video. East Coast legends Capone-N-Noreaga and Mobb Deep reacted with their diss-track “L.A., L.A.” despite the fact that at that point, it was viewed as a shot at Biggie.
“[Lil] Cease takes me upstairs, Biggie is upstairs in a walker — like what the old people walk around in,” Snoop revealed, talking about a visit with Biggie after both 2Pac’s murder and the “New York, New York” shooting. “He got the little walker sitting at the edge of the bed. And when I walk in the room, we started talking. And then he looked me in my eyes. He said something that — he’s sad that Tupac is dead, but I can look in his eyes and I could see that he hurt. He didn’t even have to say it. I could see that he hurt behind 2Pac being dead.”
Snoop Dogg noticed that the two rappers never at any point discussed the “New York, New York” debate. “This is not a man that’s happy or glamorized,” he continued. “This is his friend that’s dead. They had a misunderstanding and he could never get justice for his emotions. He’s showing me his emotions. He explained to me how much he loved 2Pac.”
After their discussion in that hotel room, Snoop and Biggie would later connect for a studio meeting in which B.I.G. played him an early cut of “Someone’s Gotta Die” in which he references the West Coast legend inside the first bar of his first verse. “I’m sittin’ in the crib dreamin’ about Lear jets and coupes/ The way Salt “Shoops” and how to sell records like Snoop.”
“They in there smoking some bullsh*t a** weed and I come in there with that thang that killed John Wayne you know what I mean? I pull my weed out and change the temperature of the room. So Biggie at the board and he’s like, ‘Hey Snoop, I want you to hear this sh*t. The motherf*cker pressed play… It was like him letting me know in front of all his homeboys, ‘N*gga I f*ck with you, I love you and I ain’t gone never have a problem with you. So going forward me and his situation, it never was a situation to begin with but we had that understanding that, that’s all in the game of war. You win some, you lose some.”
Later in the meeting, Snoop conversed with Fatman Scoop about what 2Pac would be up to in the event that he were alive today and details his on going discussion with him on his deathbed. He uncovered 2Pac would have thought the coronavirus was an intrigue, he wouldn’t have endured industry governmental issues and he would have effectively been a supporter of the Black Lives Matter development.
