Snoop Dogg Reveals Why He And 50 Cent Give Back To Hip Hop Veterans

Snoop Dogg recently opened up about his efforts to support Hip Hop veterans and noted that other rappers, like 50 Cent, are also helping out. 

The West Coast legend recently stopped by the All The Smoke Podcast to discuss why giving back to his peers is essential. Snoop noted that older rappers must have some resources to help them when they fall on hard times. “You’ve got to take care of your own, you’ve got to set an example,” he said. 

The iconic rapper also said he doesn’t need to publicize his good deeds: “It’s not a public thing for me. I’m not going to say, ‘I helped him.’” Later in the conversation, Snoop also revealed that he wasn’t alone in his charitable efforts, as 50 Cent and others have also contributed. 

“There’s been many times where me and 50 Cent together have called some of our O.G.’s and put bags on him,’ he said. “And O.G. like, ‘Oh man, nah.’ We ain’t trying to hear that sh*t. We know you need it. Here, ni**a.”

More importantly, Snoop pointed out how important it is for younger rappers to look out for their predecessors. “Respect your elders because you making all this money — not that you have to — but if you love this rapper and respect this rapper, you see he’s down on his luck, he may need some money but he has pride.” 

Toward the end of the interview, Snoop revealed some exciting news for fans — he and Dr.Dre will be releasing an album soon. “I’m in the lab with Dr. Dre right now. That’s Death Row/Aftermath. We finishing that up right now, tidying up the pieces to that.”
