Earlier this week, Snoop sent a video to Dr. Dre in an effort to spread positive energy after Dre lost a family member of his own.
He told Dre: “They say Snoop Dogg is an icon, he’s a God, he’s a king, but there’s one n***a to honor, and that’s you. 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, n***a.”
