UPDATE: (4/01) According to Snoop Dogg, his collaboration with Charlie Sheen and Filter’s Rob Patterson should be released before the end of next week. During an interview with George Lopez, where Snoop laughed off Cameron Diaz’s allegations that he sold her marijuana while they were both enrolled at Long Beach’s Polytechnic High, he confirmed hitting the studio with Sheen.
“Well, you know me and Charlie—we’re working on something right now in the studio trying to put some music together…something real crazy,” Snoop said. No stranger to the viral Internet meme himself, Snoop has previously released the “True Blood” tribute “Oh Sookie” and recorded a bachelor party anthem for England’s Prince William. He told Lopez his work with Sheen captures that same spirit.
“He’s a brilliant guy,” Snoop added. “I’m having so much fun just being around him. One thing about me, I’m different. I love having different relationships with people who aren’t the norm…people who aren’t the usual. One thing about Charlie is, he’s not normal. He’s not usual. We making some real, classic material. We’ll probably put something on Twitter in three or four days.”
Sheen announced a collaboration of some sorts March 25 via Twitter. The message featured Sheen, former Korn turned Filter guitarist Rob Patterson and Snoop Dogg in the studio together. It’s unclear when or how the music their recording session produced will be released, as Sheen is preparing for the April 14 debut of his “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” tour. Snoop also worked with members of Korn while appearing in the group’s “Twisted Transistor” video. As odd collaborations go, Snoop’s work with Sheen and Patterson probably ranks somewhere between his 2003 appearance on Limp Bizkit’s “Red Light, Green Light” and the 2008 song “My Medicine,” which featured Willie Nelson.
UPDATE #2: Charlie Sheen debuted the version of “Winning” featuring Snoop Dogg on Friday, April 1 during his Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option Tour. The performance took place in Detroit, Michigan.
