Snoop Dogg recently sat down with DJ Whoo Kid for the Whollywood Shuffle radio show and spoke about the upcoming N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton.
When the cast was being put together, the “Peaches N Cream” rapper had a certain person in mind to play him in the movie. Snoop said the actor that is playing him, Keith Stanfield, is “dope” but he “preferred Nipsey Hussle for the look.”
“But Nipsey wanted to do his own thing, which I respect that,” said the GGN host.”He don’t wanna be in my shadows as far as being so much associated with Snoop Dogg. And he’s doing a great job of creating his own lane right now, so I respect him for that. I tried to holler at him though…I feel him cause I’m like, I’m the same kind of way. Like ‘I don’t wanna be up under your shadow forever. I wanna be able to say that I’m just as big as you if not bigger than you.’”
The Doggfather also spoke about Suge Knight’s current murder charges and admitted that he feels “sorry for him.” He said that he and his former CEO had made amends and were in a great space before Knight was arrested.
“I don’t ever kick a man when he down,” he said. “And I always look forward to building a relationship with somebody who I had a relationship with. And I feel like a lot of times it just be misunderstandings. And it be people in the entourage. As opposed to the two people really hating each other. I never hated him and he never really hated me. How could you hate me when I made you $100 million? And how can I hate you when you helped me build a team to beat my murder case?”
