Snoop Dogg & Seth Rogen’s Interests Overlap, Talking Origins Of “The Chronic” (Video)
Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen. One of the coolest figures of pop culture from the ’90s and one of the coolest pop culture icons of the 2000s cross paths on D-O-Double G’s GGN segment. The two men share a love of medicinals, as the joints burn slow.
As Snoop calls Seth and his comrades “the new Rat Pack,” Rogen talks about how he met and began working with James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson (2:40). Rogen’s long worked Hip-Hop culture into his comedy, and the troupe of actors, directors, and producers dating back to “Freaks & Geeks” are certainly products of the Hip-Hop generation. By 7:00, the pair really starts to bond, talking rolling cross-joints; Seth notes that he rolled all the ones in the movie, Pineapple Express. Then the guys move into strands, as Snoop dubs one “Seth to Death” with a special tag-line.
Oh, and Snoop and Seth both talk about working with Rose Byrne, who Heads may know from her antagonist role in Bridesmaids.
Seth also presses Snoop about the roots of “The Chronic,” the famous term used throughout his early ’90s introduction, and the classic Dr. Dre debut of the same name.
These two guys have overlapping interests altogether, especially if you lick the papers first. This is a funny, laughter-ridden GGN segment.
