Snoop Dogg & Jamie Foxx Create A Dope Collabo On The Spot (Video)
Snoop Dogg interviews are some of the best in Rap music, and that was the case this week for a segment of Sway In The Morning. The two respective greats discussed old times, Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, Snoop’s latest album Bible Of Love, his ongoing relationship with Suge Knight – during which he says “I love him” – and more. Perhaps the highlight of Tha Dogfather’s time up at Sway was when Jamie Foxx entered the room.
After those two discussed old times (including some music that they made while indulging more than 20 years ago), they create a new impromptu song that’s nothing ephemeral. With Foxx on the hook, Snoop pulled out some pretty impressive bars, particularly his second verse, which proves he still has a knack for tight bars even after all these years. They both rock over a blend featuring the Isley Brothers’ “For The Love Of You” with some splashes of G-Funk.
Snoop shouts out the station, the show, the hosts, and more in a freestyle flow that takes the listener through his day. “Wake yo ass up, it’s Sway in the Morning,” Snoop raps at around 22:30. “I brush my teeth and then I’m yawnin’ / I jumped in the Sprinter van heading down the streets / Tryna get to the radio station to get complete.” Jamie adds just the right gangsta’ touches in a way that Mr. Big would approve of, as Snoop persists with his charming freestyle flow.
Snoop Dogg released his Bible Of Love album on March 16. It’s his 16th solo studio effort and first Gospel-based LP, and features appearances from many greats of the genre, including Kim Burrell, Tye Tribbett, and Uncle Charlie Wilson. It’s been a minute since Jamie Foxx last released music. His latest full-length drop was 2015’s Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses.
