Back in February Dr. Dre performed at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI halftime show where the legendary producer brought out Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak.
After the performance, Dr. Dre faced some criticism from disappointed fans that certain songs and rappers were not included in the show.
Yesterday, Snoop Dogg appeared on Drink Champs with NORE and DJ EFN where he briefly talked about the Super Bowl halftime show.
“What people do not understand is, he did not do nothing from the Ruthless catalog, the Death Row catalog, nothing from Snoop Dogg’s catalog… He only had 12 minutes. What could you do in twelve f**king minutes where you could satisfy everybody? … You gonna miss a beat, where was Ice Cube? That is the ace in the hole.” said Snoop.
Later in the interview, Snoop revealed that Dr. Dre did not originally wanted to perform at the Super Bowl: “Dre called to say, ‘They want me to do the Super Bowl, I do not know if I wanna do it. One thing you gotta know about Dr. Dre, is he is a guy that’s in the moment. So if he do not feel like he is got a record that is relevant at the moment, then he do not think he is the moment.”
“Convincing him was more or less about ‘ni**a I’m with you.’ When the Dogg stands with you your confidence level goes up to roof. And once you get the Dogg next call is ‘Hi, My Name Is.’ I ain’t suggest no motherf**king thing. Only thing I suggested I was like ‘can we do G Tang’ cause I felt like that song was pinnacle moment of who we are.” Snoop added.
