The revelation unfolded organically as Snoop reflected on his heyday and expressed regret about some beats he wished he had dominated. Notably, he mentioned instrumentals by Pharrell and Swizz Beatz that eventually found their way to the likes of JAY-Z, Nas, and DMX.
The conversation took an intriguing turn when Benny playfully probed Harry Fraud, the producer behind his 2021 project “The Plugs I Met 2,” about beats given to Dave East. Seizing the moment, Snoop decided to unveil the hidden gem of his collaboration with the East Coast artist.
As a true aficionado of Hip Hop, Snoop shared the backstory of the project, revealing that it took place years ago when he visited New York to collaborate with Dave East. The two artists vibed in Harlem, creating a body of work reminiscent of the gritty sound associated with acts like Griselda.
However, the excitement surrounding the project was short-lived as the label intervened, altering the course of the album’s destiny. Snoop disclosed, “We did a whole project that was just like the shit that [Griselda] do. And then the label stepped in and was like, ‘Nah, we’re gonna do [this instead].'”
