Snoop Dogg has revealed who he thinks are the three greatest rappers of all-time, listing himself amongst the top picks.
Snoop also said that Brooklyn rapper Jimmy Spicer’s track ‘Adventures of Super Rhyme’ was the song that first inspired him to rap.
Describing the ‘human’ qualities of Shakur, Snoop spoke of 2Pac as “many different things at once. Hardheaded and intellectual, courageous and afraid, revolutionary and… oh yeah, don’t get it fucked up, gangsta.”
He also revealed that it was Shakur who handed him his first joint at an LA party, telling the crowd, “That’s right, Tupac is the one that got Snoop Dogg smoking weed. I was a zig-zag man before that.”
Snoop reminisced over a holiday the pair shared in South America, and recounted his memory of parasailing with Shakur whilst Suge Knight drove the boat. “You heard right. Snoop Dogg and 2Pac parasailing together. You got to remember, I had just beat my case and ‘Pac had just got out of prison. Does anybody know what parasailing is? Because we damn sure didn’t.”
