Everyone knows about radio personality Don Imus‘ comments by now. If you don’t, check out A-Plus callin’ him out here.
But for some reason, people have said Imus‘ comments are in some ways equal to those made by rappers, including Snoop Dogg. The Doggfather didn’t appreciate that.
“[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about hoes that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing sh–, that’s trying to get a n—a for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain’t no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha—-as say we in the same league as him,” he told MTV.
So, what does Snoop propose we do about Imus?
“Kick him off the air forever,” he added. “Ban him like they did [Adam] ‘Pacman’ Jones. They kicked him out the [National Football] League for the whole season [for numerous violations of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy, including multiple arrests], but this punk gets to get on the air and call black women ‘nappy-headed hoes.’ “
Currently, Snoop is looking at some community service hours that lay ahead. But he is also looking forward to a new album The Big Squeeze, set to be released through Koch, entirely produced by Snoop.
“I’m trying to give some light to these West Coast artists out here. Some of them are rivals, so I brought them all together so they could move forward. I call it The Big Squeeze because I’m finnin’ to squeeze the game by the neck. It’s a parade of the artists that I felt was my starters. As opposed to grabbing everybody from the West Coast, I grabbed the ones I thought were best at the time.”
With so many friends he could call, why did he produce this whole album?
“As opposed to calling in Pharrell and Timbaland and Scott Storch, all my high-powered friends, I said, ‘Let me do it on my own and show them that if I’m willing to make the sacrifice, maybe they will too.’ … I just wanted to give them a shot. Do a record with them, people know they official … then they got me whenever they need me. If they wanna do a [record] deal with me, then come on. If not, then they on their own. I’m not trying to lock anybody down.”
