Everyone loves a dope Hip-Hop story. This time, we’re afforded tale of how Snoop Dogg saved Nas’ life. While sitting down with Big Sean for what resulted in a highly entertaining 15 minute segment, the story went down a little something like this.
Twenty years ago – when Snoop was probably the most frightening rapper in America (either him or Cube) – Nas was in Cali presumably for a promo run. Nas sees Snoop on the corner gambling in the hood and jumps out his van in red jumpsuit (of all colors) to greet Snoop.
Had it not been for The Doggfather’s quick thinking, chances are Nasir would’ve returned to New York in body bag thanks to Lil’ Half Dead and Lil’ Loud Pack. Or at the very least in a few bandages. Seriously, you just don’t jump out of a white van all G.I. Commando-like wearing a suggestive color in the hood in California. Tensions quickly cooled off following The Dogg’s confirmation there was no neeand that was that. Still, smarten up, Nas.
Anywho, the rest of the clip is worth the price of admission, too. Like when Snoop – the OG chronic connoisseur he is – puts Sean on game on how to properly burn it down in a hotel without bringing attention on your room.
