[With a packed house at New York City’s Highline Ballroom last night (August 8) for rap veteran Snoop Dogg’s “CRWN” series Q&A, SOHH sat in the crowd and heard the Doggfather discuss various topics including his relationship with longtime pal Wiz Khalifa. Peep below!]
That relationship happened because my son was playing this record. He was playing songs that wasn’t mine in my house. I’m talking about in the bathroom, the living room, his room.
I’m like, “Who is this rapper you keep playing?” He was like, “Oh, pops, that’s Wiz Khalifa. You need to get up on him, he’s tight.”
So I reached out to him and was like, “I want to get down with you. My son likes your music and I like it too so how can we get down?”
I was reaching out to him, showing him love, I had him come hang out with me and from our relationship with making music I was like, “We need to make a movie.”
We went on tour and we just built a brotherhood that was necessary. One thing about me, if I love somebody and I feel like he’s family, I’ll treat you like family.
And now I see him blowing up, becoming bigger than life and he’s outworking me on-stage. I ain’t ever been outworked on-stage.
I know that and it’s cool to feel like that. I know that I’m getting a little older and I know this is a young man’s game and he pushes me to the limit every night to go out there and do my best.
I love being on-stage with him because it’s a real brotherhood. It’s not like when I was on tours before and this artist has his dressing room and I never went into his dressing room and he never came into mine.
We share a joint every night. We parlay every night. We hug each other. We tell each other we love each other on-stage in front of everybody every night ’cause it’s genuine.
