DJ Skee and AXS TV / Skee.TV sat down with Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) for an extended, in depth, and, at times, very personal chat. This uncut interview covers the evolution of his identity and music including his first comments after squashing his beef with Suge Knight, discussing the meaning behind his new album and documentary, Reincarnated, why he is speaking out about gun violence, putting Drake on his new single and his connection to gun violence (after a gun incident in Toronto), working on a reggae album with Diplo, and much more.
You can’t really see clearly what exactly is going on here but just at the beginning of the video you can see a visibly upset Rick Ross looking like he’s ready to go. Ross can be seen just before he goes out of focus taking off his chain like he wants to fight….with numerous police already trying to tone the situation down in the hallway. If you look close you can see DJ Drama in the back as well with a concerned look on his face. Once Rick Ross passes him DJ Drama continues down the hall and books it to go do his radio show before being shouted out by the camera guy.
It’s sad that in the aftermath a perfectly good mirror was destroyed for apparently no good reason. Somebody is looking at some possible bad luck I suppose. Here is DJ Drama’s most current response on the matter he shared with Hip Hop DX.
Here is the video footage of DJ Drama speaking on the confrontation he witnessed after leaving the venue to go host his radio show.
