Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre are a dynamic duo. The pair has entertained millions of fans with their classic music, become moguls within the hip hop industry, and maintained a solid relationship for over three decades. It’s not surprising that when Dr. Dre needed a little reminder that he’s still D.R.E., his pal Snoop came through for him.
On Saturday (Oct. 23), Dre took to Instagram to share a touching message he received from his protégé. “Thank you to everyone for sending me so much positive energy. I’d like to share this inspirational message from my brother @snoopdogg,” he wrote. Within the clip, which is just under a minute long, Snoop encourages Dre to do what he does best. “Take that hurt, that anger, and that pain and make magic,” he said.
“Ever since I was fuckin’ with you before I was fuckin’ with you, you could always take pain, anger, frustration, anything that was negative and you could get something positive out of it,” Snoop said. “That’s why you the doctor.”
“They say Snoop Dogg is an icon, he’s a God, he’s a king, but there’s one nigga to honor, and that’s you,” Snoop continued. “So you get your shit right and focus on being great. Take all that negative energy, all that shit that you dealing with: the death, the fucking lawsuits, all that shit, put it all in your mind and your spirit and make something magical, nigga.”
Snoop is likely referring to the reports that surfaced last week disclosing that Dre attended his grandmother’s funeral at a cemetery in Los Angeles. The rapper-producer is also currently in the middle of a divorce with his estranged wife, Nicole. So, a pep talk from Snoop was probably right on time.
