Snoop Dogg Picks G.O.A.T. Mt. Rushmore East Coast Rappers

Snoop Dogg names his top NYC rap legends to appear on Mt. Eastmore.

May 7, 2021 Snoop Dogg then switched his attention to the legendary lyricist who directly inspired his own trailblazing career at the height of the Doggystyle days as well as a true no-brainer. You gotta have to have Slick Rick, he said before adding, I would throw JAY-Zin there because he had such a long career. He did that. Best known for early Hip Hop classic records such as The Show, Childrens Story and Hey Young World, Slick Rick served as one of the raps most versatile voices, setting a standard for orating in Hip Hop thats still revered today. In fact, Snoop actually remade the UK-born rappers La-Di-Da-Di track for his own aforementioned breakthrough debut. JAY-Z , on the other hand, would go onto the rock with the most Grammys of any rapper and more than 50 million albums and 75 million singles sold worldwide and unprecedented business savvy that continues to top itself each year pretty much an automatic selection.

Eastmore, Snoop tossed out a few more names but ultimately racked his brain for a hardline decision. Im debating on either Nas or the old school because thats a tough one, he continued. Damn, its going to be hard leaving Whodini and Run-DMC out. I love old school and I love Nas too, for holding on for so long. I will let the East coast figure out who the fourth face is. Despite the fact its hard to justify mountain space for an entire group, Snoop Dogg recently showed the Whodini legends a bit of nationally syndicated love, following the loss of their member Ectasy this past November For his latest Corona beer TV ad, he can be spotted passing out cold ones to beachgoers (most notably Bad Bunny) as the trios unforgettable 1984 Friends single. In the case of Mt. Westmore, Snoop Dogg says the supergroup has the music and materials in the vault but are looking to make a bigger splash given their tenureship in the industry. We have about 40 songs and a couple of videos, he revealed. Now we are just ready for some big label, or some big money guy to come along and say, Hey, I believe in you. Ill make it happen, because were not trying to do a regular record deal.' Subscribe to DX Newsletter Get The Most Important Stories Of The Day Straight To Your Inbox Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
