I am not a Snoop Dogg Fan But......


I'm not a fan of Snoopy Doggy Dog sorry Snoop Lion. Wait, let me rephrase that....... I was his fan in the 90s when he first came out with 'Snoopy Doooggy Dog, tatatara'  'Gin and juice' Rap was new, his rap was smooth and I was a late teenager who had no other cares than boys and books.
But as his videos got more lewd, and his drug/weapon arrests became a monthly affair, I quickly dissociated myself from him and for a long time I told anyone who had ears to hear, that I was waiting for him to 'Come out on his HIV status'.

Last week, DBF showed me the video below and my walls came crumbling down. Call me a mushy nanny goat :)


 
Shante Taylor is Snoop's high school sweetheart. They got married in 97. Nearly divorced in 2004 and renewed their vows again in 2008. They are blessed with 3 kids.

About the near-divorce Snoop says:
"I was going to split up with my wife. My wife wasn't going to split up with me. You know, I was caught up. I was caught up with Hollywood, all the girls and the nightlife ... 
I thought I was the man, and I was willing to give up what I had at home for that until I realized that what I had at home was irreplaceable. So I gave that up to go back home."
Source: Tim Nudd. "Snoop Dogg: My Home Life is 'Irreplaceable.'" People.com. 12/22/2007.

Sigh.
Snoop is not be my ideal, I dont think I can cope with his brand of madness, but Shante's loyalty makes me believe there is indeed somebody for everybody.

  1. I have always liked Snoop Dogg/ Lion/ Gazelle ...:)
    Simply because it takes a whole lot of creativity for an artiste to remain relevant for over 20 years.
    For a black brother...even more commendable that he hasnt been dragged down by baby-mama-drama; tax evasion or litigation issues.
    Shows that behind the heavy haze of 'gbana' there's a shrewd brain or stellar team
    For shizzle my nizzle LOL

  2. I was also a fan of Snoop in them days, but I outgrew him but never really disassociated, he's somewhat cute I think :)

    Now this has got me so mushy, love love love! Thanks for sharing, there's surely someone for almost all of us, with our different brands of craze.

  5. He still has a place somewhere in my heart but I sort of lost interest with the whole Dog to Lion and re-incarnation gist.

  6. "Rap was new, his rap was smooth and I was a late teenager who had no other cares than boys and books."- Ginger rhyming.

    I never cared for his music but I watched his reality show when it aired a couple of years back. In spite of all his drama, he is a family man.
