Snoop Dogg: From the Left Pocket Part 2

PC police are on a full-scale red alert when Mr. Snoop Dogg is in the area. The rapper holds nothing back. In part two of AHH’s feature, the rapper talks about controversy, his wife and if the pimp game got a hold of his own daughter. Check the second half of this doggy biscuit. Over the years, your fans and a lot of readers have seen your numerous positive acts for your community and what not but recently you’ve come under some fire for a cartoon on MTV2 depicting you with two women on leashes. But you actually did that in reality at the 2003 VMAs. What is that all about?

Snoop Dogg: Pimpin’ on a b*tch. That’s the only way to explain it. When y’all saw me at the MTV Awards, I was really pimpin’ on a b*tch, for real - hard on a hoe. I was the Bishop Magic Don Juan, and I was really I pimpin’. I was getting money outta b*tches. I really fell off into the pimpin’. I fell in love with it as a kid. I loved the movie The Mack, and I wanted to give it a try. I didn’t wanna just rap about it or talk about it. I wanted to see if I could get some money out of a b*tch, and I did. I wanted to see if I could make a b*tch do what I [told her to] do, and I did. I had fun. I did that. That’s what I wanted to do, and I did that and I ain’t gotta explain that s**t to nobody. I didn’t explain it to my wife, and I ain’t explaining it to y’all. Point blank. It is what it is. It’s what I wanted to do. It’s like a fantasy. It’s like a kid that dreams of riding in a helicopter and a mothaf**ker brings you the helicopter and is like, “N***a, you could fly this helicopter. It only takes two weeks of practice.” And n***a, my skills…I ain’t even need practice. I just knew how to fly the helicopter and whoop, whoop, whoop, away we go. Bust a hoe everywhere I go. “Oh yeah, this pimpin’, b*tch.” [makes female voice] “Okay daddy, what you want?” [in his own voice] “B*tch, break bread or fake dead. Yeah. Break yaself ‘cause you can’t break me. Uh huh. Peel back ya purse, whatchya workin’ with.” It got so real I wrote a movie about it called, Bossin’ Up ‘cause I fell in love with one of my hoes. Mmm, ain’t that something. That was a lot of information.

Snoop Dogg: It’s the truth though. I’ma give it to you uncut. This AllHipHop, this ain't Oprah, this is directly to my fans who know that they like getting it uncut from me. I mean you didn’t feel some kind of way about [pimpin ’] when you have a wife, and daughter, and a mother?

Snoop Dogg: I didn’t pimp on my wife. I didn’t pimp on my mother. But you would you have an issue if someone tried to pimp on your daughter?

Snoop Dogg: If the pimpin’ is strong enough, it is what it is. That’s what it do. I can’t control you when you leave my possession. I don’t control her. I just raise you. I just basically groom you. It’s like my mother, she raised me. My father didn’t raise me. So every piece of game I got, I got from my mother. I respect women. I just told you that was a fantasy that I had to be a pimp; to really get of in the game. I wasn’t gonna be a n***a that was just rappin about, [mimics 50 Cent] “‘Cause I’ma muthaf**kin’ P-I-M-P.” N***a, I was really pimpin’ on a b*tch. So that’s why when 50 called me for the video he said, “Snoop, I’m doing this video. Can you call some real pimps?” ‘Cause he knew who to call! And it didn’t cost him nothing, ‘cause he knew. You still pimpin’?

Snoop Dogg: No. So when we saw your wife and you reconciled on E! Entertainment Television’s Hip-Hop Wives that let us know that the pimpery was done?

Snoop Dogg: Nah, when I got back with her, that let you know. Nah, when you got back with her that let you know that she is a good woman and she loves your ass to death!

Snoop Dogg: What about me? I ain’t no good man? Umm.

Snoop Dogg: Because to… recognize, first of all, I’m the one who asked for the divorce and I’m the one who asked to come back. I make mistakes. It wasn’t like a n***a is just perfect and just lives a great life and s**t go right. I thought that I ain’t wanna be with her no more. I thought that this is what I wanted to do because I was really pimpin’ and getting money and my life as a rapper was like a mothaf**kin’ dream! As a kid, you grow up and when your dreams come true, you either live it out or keep dreamin’. My s**t was really happening. And people love Snoop Dogg. And it was like, “Woooow, I can’t believe I’m really getting money out a b*tch. I’m really pimpin’. My nails is fresh. My outfit is done. Oh, I look good. Oh, my car match my coat. B*tch can’t tell me nothin’!” I was really on some losing my mind s**t. But at the same time, it’s a fantasy. You gotta dream. So it’s not some s**t that’s like a fairy tale, but it was what I wanted to do and that's when I had enough of it - when I felt like, you know what this is not me it’s not what I want to do. I could do it and be the best at it, but I don’t have my heart in it like I need to. You know what I mean? ‘Cause [in that line of work], you can’t have a stomach. You can’t have a soul. You gotta be just about your motherf**kin’ money. If she had done the same thing would you have taken her back?

Snoop Dogg: I don’t know. I’m different. I mighta would’ve. I mean, I love how she raised my kids and what she do and how she’s been there for me. You get with people because they match you in different ways. Like only a certain mothaf**ker could deal with Snoop Dogg. Like, I see that you couldn’t deal with me because I’m too much and you too much too! So it’s like, at the same time she’s a strong woman. She’s the only person that can make me square up and you know. It’s like I’m tough in front of you, but in front of her, I’m a completely different n***a. I’m like poindexter, [laughs] you understand me? It’s one of those in everybody’s life.
