“Well on that reference track, I’m doing Dre and Snoop’s vocals,” Hov says before doing a live impression of the two legendary West Coast artists. “The reference track, it sounds like them. The Foxy [Brown] reference? I’m glad no one can find them.”
“You’ve gotta have somewhat of a reverence for them,” he continues. “Obviously, the music they were making — The Chronic and all that. In order for me to really nail the essence of Dre and Snoop, [it] had to be like a studied reverence of what they were doing to even put myself in their shoes.”
