We really just love each other,” says Snoop.
Snoop responsible for Tupac in Death Row
“I’m the reason why Tupac was on Death Row. I told Suge go get Tupac. I’m the reason for a lot of things that happened cause I was the one that always to speak up. Nah that ain’t right. Nah I ain’t wit that. Even when Pac and Biggie was into it. I would tell Pac, nah cuz, that ain’t cool. He don’t want none,” explains Snoop on Big Boy TV.

Snoop Dogg’s song to Suge Knight
On his new album ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, Snoop Dogg honors Suge Knight on the song ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones‘. “There’s been so many different versions of the Death Row story. So many different versions of people’s perspective, intellect, introspective and just people thinking they know what it is and what it was.”
“It was some real key figures in Death Row records. The main figures was Dr. Dre, DOC, Snoop Dogg and Suge Knight. The rest of the pieces to the puzzle was musical. They was talented. They was business minded but they was never intricate like I’m speaking on,” says Snoop.
“Dr. Dre will never tell his story from Death Row Records. Suge Knight’s has already been told as far as the public is concerned and they’re always bashing him. Tupac’s story been told four or five different times, but he was only on Death Row for six months. Snoop Dogg was the only one standing that can actually speak some real life and real truth to what Death Row records meant,” continues Snoop Dogg.
