How did Snoop Doggy Dogg come to be?
AllHipHop.com has an exclusive premiere of the legendary Snoop Dogg discussing meeting Dr. Dre and getting his first record deal. This is a excerpt from Snoop Dogg’s episode of Guitar Center Sessions set to air Sunday, June 1st on DirecTV.
Snoop recalls how he got his deal with Dr. Dre:
"When I made this song called “Gangster’s Life.” It was a story of me being born into a gangster life, me living a gangster life and me passing this gangster life on to my little brother, and my little brother ended up getting killed. It was so deep and so dope how I told the story, it was the song that got me my record deal with Dre."
This series was filmed live at SXSW, on a rooftop perched high above the crowds with Austin’s majestic skyline as a backdrop. The 12 episode season features a wide range of musical acts including iconic artists Soundgarden, Damon Albarn, and Alice in Chains as well as buzzworthy acts CHVRCHES, Phantogram, Cage the Elephant and more.
