Snoop dogg and DMX brought some well-deserved 1990s nostalgia to the 2020 horror show with a few hours of sick rap battles that became an instant classic.
The rappers clashed Wednesday night in the latest battle for Verzuz which drew 500,000 viewers on Instagram Live. If you’ve forgotten what Verzuz is, here’s a reminder … Swizz beatz and Timbaland created the Musical Battle Show, originally on IG Live, which has attracted millions and millions of fans and strong interest Hollywood executives.
Back to Snoop and X … the rappers complemented each other by spitting out some of their most iconic tracks, like when DMX hopped on it and joined Snoop on “Ain’t No Fun”. Snoop also got into “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Gin and Juice” while DMX spat “Where My Dogs At” and “X Gon ‘Give It To Ya”, which knocked Snoop out of his seat.
They were also complimenting each other, literally. Snoop – wearing children’s pajamas – told DMX: “New York has always been a rap mecca for us on the West Coast.” This prompted DMX to respond, “Something I love about you, Snoop, is that we can always count on you to kick gangsters.”
