The legendary Snoop Dogg drops in to give his opinions on Jay-Z’s deal with the NFL and tells a bunch of stories from Death Row Records. The rapper also touches on the late Nipsey Hussle.
Snoop Dogg stopped by The Breakfast Club on Wednesday and was asked if he agreed with Nipsey Hussle’s statement that he’s this generation Tupac Shakur.
“The spirit Nipsey had was the spirit Tupac had as far as being up close and personal with the people and just… trying to give back,” he explained. “I think Nipsey did what Tupac couldn’t do. I think [Nipsey] was the extension, like running the 440 relay and you pass the baton.”
“I think the spirit of Tupac was Nipsey—the seed that he planted because he don’t rap like him, but he moved like him,” the West Coast OG added. “The way he was lovable but he was gangster at the same time. The way he was about the kids…the community work. That’s the same thing Tupac was about.”
