Snoop Dogg wants respect from enemies
Snoop Dogg wants old enemies to respect him as a musician and not dwell on his past
Snoop Dogg wants old enemies to respect him as a musician.
The 42-year-old star - who is due to appear in Los Angeles as an accessory for murder next month - insists he is focusing on his career and wants those around him to recognise him for his talent, and not dwell on his past.
Quizzed on whether people from his past want to settle scores, he told the NME: "A lot of them dwell on that s**t. But a lot of them just say 'F**k it, he's doing music now, he's rocking the world. So we gonna respect him as a musician first.' And if gang members can do it, the media should be able to do it. And the white Americans should be to do it too."
Snoop insists his music is an "art" and isn't made to "preach", unlike literature and books.
He added: "Some songs are just made to party to. Some songs are just made to sit down and listen and see what the f**k I'm saying. But not every song is made that way, because I'm not a political person at all. I wouldn't make no record for mo'f***ers to study. But music is an art, it's made to enhance mo'f***ers with. It ain't made to preach - that's literature, books and s**t like that."
