Snoop Dogg’s Pharrell-Produced LP Bush Out In March

Snoop Dogg once extended his career a few years by making a pair of enormous hits, "Drop It Like It's Hot" and "Beautiful," with Pharrell. But those songs both came out more than a decade ago, and it's been a while since Snoop has had a hit, or even made anything especially listenable. That could… More »

Iggy Azalea Was Brittany From White Chicks For Halloween

There's been a lot said about Iggy Azalea's cultural appropriation, from sources reputable (NPR, Salon) and less so (see Snoop Dogg's Instagram post from last month). During the back-and-forth between Azalea and Snoop following his Instagram, he compared her to Marlon Wayans' character in White Chicks. And so for Halloween, she… More »

Snoop Dogg Should Probably Take A Break From Instagram

Last month, Snoop Dogg got into some trouble for a homophobic Instagram post that called out another user, which he deleted shortly after it started to gain some traction in the media.

The Week In Pop: Are You Ready For Some Chris Brown? (Or Nah?)

Football season is pretty awkward this year. There's a widespread unease about watching our modern gladiators destroy each other when so many of them have been accused of battering women and children lately -- that is, if the whole concussion thing didn't already have you feeling vaguely queasy about otherwise amazing moments like More »

Snoop Dogg Under Fire For Homophobic Instagram Post

Snoop Dogg has never exactly struck anyone as being the most progressive social thinker -- not even when he was making love-everyone reggae as Snoop Lion last year. But someone who's been famous for a couple of decades should know better than to go full scary-homophobic all over social media. But as Buzzfeed reports,… More »

Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead! Will Feature Kendrick Lamar, Herbie Hancock, Snoop Dogg

When the visionary Los Angeles beat-mangler Flying Lotus got Thom Yorke and Erykah Badu to show up on his album Until The Quiet Comes a couple of years ago, that felt like a big deal indeed, even if their voices fully blurred into his expansive jazz-damanged dreamworld. And it'll be interesting to see what happe… More »

Last year, 7 Days Of Funk, the retro synth-funk duo of Snoop Dogg and Dâm-Funk, released a self-titled album full of music that explicitly recalled the music they grew up on.

Watch Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe, Pharrell & Friends Play NBA All-Star Weekend 2014

At this point, Lana Del Rey is reaching that Coldplay-circa-2006 level where it's no longer surprising to hear rappers sampling her on mixtapes.
