No! Not Snoop Dogg too!!
Snoop Dogg, real name Calvin Broadus, talked about his reasons for joining the religious group in relatively loose terms. “I’m an advocate for peace. I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music,” he told followers. “My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you. It’s just about the way I live, and I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right. That’s why I was here today.”
The Nation of Islam was founded in 1930 with the aim of promoting the conditions of black Americans. The group’s most famous convert is activist Malcolm X.
Discussing his religious beliefs at this weekend’s Nation of Islam event, the Doggystyle rapper referred to himself as the “leader of the hip-hop community” and hinted that his affiliation with the group is not new. “It’s about seeing yourself and what you can do to better the situation,” Broadus said. “We’re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting.”
God Damn! First Prince goes from being a Raspberry Beret Wearing Sexy Muthafucka to a non drinking non chaps wearing god warrior, now the fucking shizzle loses his sizzle? The D O double G? The Dog Father? What the hell? Say it ain't so Snoop? Will you be putting the blunt down too? I feel tears. This day now officially squicks. Turning my dial way down while I wallow in the days when dogs like Snoop hung with hogs like Dre and made summer time music. Fo' reals.
