Snoop Dogg Talks About His New Bond With DMX After Verzuz



Snoop Dogg and DMX put down a memorable Verzuz, but no one ever thought it would be  Earl Simmons last ever live event.

Snoop has become a legendary figure in the rap and entertainment worlds. Bursting onto the scene in the early 90’s, the west coast hip hop legend has seen the best of them come and go in the music business.

His experience and success was recently one of the reasons that the iconic hip hop label, Def Jam, decided to make him an executive in their company.  The same company that was also the home of DMX. Despite being 0-17 at the Grammys, Snoop has been heralded with having one of the greatest albums ever created for hip hop with “Doggystyle” that was released in 1993.

So it is very telling how Snoop was honored to accept a Verzuz showdown with the late great DMX. The artist was known for touching souls with his emphatic sounds and signature voice. Snoop is also known for his smooth delivery and voice on his songs, so fans were highly anticipating their Verzuz.

Snoop Dogg sat down with GQ Magazine to discuss his thoughts on DMX and their now legendary Verzuz episode.

Snoop explained what the two hip hop icons ended up doing after having their “Battle Of The Dogs” event. He said to GQ that DMX went to his studio and the vibes was positive for the night. Snoop detailed, “It felt like a brotherhood that was finally caught up on. Two brothers that hadn’t spent time with each other, and they’re finally able to sit down and marinate. I started cooking for them n-ggas every day.”

He explained his feelings when he learned of the death of DMX, “It broke my heart, man. It actually did. It was just one of those feelings where it breaks your heart and you can’t cry. I wanted to cry, but then I started thinking, This man prayed for everybody other than himself. Publicly, behind closed doors, rehabilitated or not. Kept God with him and always cared about you.”

It appears that Snoop Dogg was able to have a great lasting memory with his friend before he passed away. It mus have been nice having that for once in comparison to how he lost his other good friend Tupac Shakur in the 90’s.
