Snoop Dogg Goes Inside The Matrix, Scarface & Menace II Society In His New Video
Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg released his 15th solo album. Fittingly, it was titled Neva Left, as the 25-year veteran indeed has been one of the most consistent and enduring artists in Hip-Hop history. On the title song, Snoop has a major chip on his shoulder for anyone who doubts that his skills remain in tact, as he flows over the same Charmels sample Wu-Tang Clan rocked on their classic “C.R.E.A.M.” record.
For the video, Snoop takes another trip back, this time celebrating some classic movies. In an animated clip, Uncle Snoop inserts himself into memorable scenes from Menace II Society, The Matrix and Scarface. For Menace, he re-creates the infamous card game in which Cain witnesses his first murder. With Scarface, Snoop references a number of scenes, including the shower that ends very badly for its victim. Lastly, Snoop has a boss to boss conversation with The Matrix‘s Morpheus, as they sit face to face talking about a different kind of “red and blue.”
Though Snoop has yet to get his just due from organizations like the Recording Academy, which presents the Grammy Awards, he recently was nominated for an Emmy in connection with his show Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. Hip-Hop also knows Snoop never left. In October, he was given the “I Am Hip Hop” award at the BET Hip Hop Awards, as an acknowledgement of him being a true icon.
