Snoop Dogg has been busy since his appointment as Def Jam Recordings executive. He dropped the tracklist for his new album “The Algorithm” and revealed he signed Benny the Butcher to Def Jam.
The west coast OG announced the news of Benny’s new record deal during a recent appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
The revelation came after Rogan asked if there was still tension between east and west coast artists.
“I’m on Def Jam Records right,” Snoop Dogg replied. “I’m a creative consultant executive, and just to let you know that it don’t exist no more, I’m going to announce on your show that I just signed Benny The Butcher, and he is one of the hardest rappers up out of Buffalo, New York. So that’s showing that there are no more lines to be crossed. We are doing what we’re supposed to be doing. The butcher’s coming.”
