Snoop Dogg Says He's Still A Competitive Rapper
Snoop Dogg also talks about going from Snoop Lion to Snoopzilla.
Snoop Dogg recently discussed his competitive edge after being asked about BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers. The rapper also spoke about many cyphers he enjoyed in this year's award show.
"I thought the cyphers were actually dope," Snoop said during an interview with hotnewhiphop.com. "I thought they were well-rounded. They gave a lot of people the opportunity to get down that deserved it. I really liked Crooked I, Kendrick Lamar and I definitely liked Kevin Hart. So I was entertained by all of the cyphers."
When asked if he would participate in a cypher, Snoop said he might.
"Maybe," Snoop said. "Maybe, because I'm still competitive. I'm still a rapper. I've still got that edge. So, I'd love to."
Snoop Dogg has participated in BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers before, most recently in 2012, when he rapped beside Kendrick Lamar, Kurupt, Xzibit, DJ Quik, E-40 and YG.
Aside from Rap, Snoop is also interested in various genres. As Snoop Lion, he released a Reggae-themed album, Reincarnated. As Snoopzilla, he's now partnered with Dam-Funk for 7 Days of Funk. During his interview with hotnewhiphop.com, Snoop explained the name changes.
"Just call me Snoop," he said. "That makes it simple. The thing is for the project, it wasn't a Snoop Dogg project, so I didn't want people to get it confused. That's why it's a project called 7 Days Of Funk, where me and Dam-Funk we came together and made a group. In the group, the name I'm under is Snoopzilla. But it's for the cause of the group."
