Snoop Dogg pays tribute to rapping great, DMX
The legendary hip-hop icon, DMX died last week (April 9) following a heart attack.
In the wake of this tragedy, Snoop Dogg has gone on a bit of a tour to pay tribute to the late rapper.
Snoop Dogg appeared on The Today Show on Friday where he spoke to hosts Jenna Bush Hager and Hoda Kotb to discuss DMX’s life and career. Snoop Dogg would go on to say how DMX “influenced, he inspired and he represented”, going on to speak about how his music pushed his beliefs.
“Well, I’d like to say that DMX was wanting to glorify his relationship with God, and he was always pushing the right thing,” Snoop said. “And he was always trying to help other people. And that leads me to believe that’s why God chose this angel to come back home with him. He did his time out here. He did what he was supposed to do.”
Snoop also spoke about the side of DMX that many didn’t get to see. “He was funny. He loved old school music. He loved old school cars. And when I say he loved old school music, he loved old school music and gospel music probably more than rap music.” Snoop continued, “But if you listen to him talk and you listen to what he testify and what he’s always giving up, it’s either that R&B or the gospel music that always pushed the message behind DMX.”
