What the fuck?! Snoop has been putting out woman-bashing shit since ever since…seems insane that one trip to Jamaica could convince him that all that slackness was actually fucked up. I watched that movie Mac And Devin Go To High School the other day and it reminded me how fucked up Snoop’s celebrity image is. He’s got a family and wife, but the ‘Snoop character’ is all about shittin on chicks, treatin em like prostitutes and what not. Pimps up, hoes down…?
It’s cool that he’s finally realizing those type of lyrics are wack and teach kids to be retarded; ‘tryin to be a pimp like Snoop!’. Let’s see if he can put out anything decent on the conscious tip. I mean, who don’t dig Snoop’s voice?
