Instead of writing his lyrics down in a notebook, the rapper said he borrowed a typewriter from G-funk’s 2Scoops The Dove Shack.
“They’re little sponsors,” he said of the rap trio in a recent episode 85 Southern Comedy Show. “2scoops in the group, when I first started rapping, I was using that n**** typewriter… I was writing on paper cause I’d lose my mind and this n**** typewriter was arranged. ,” he said.
He said 2Scoops was “disorganized and unethical” so he decided to “just write myself”, adding that “I was typing 65 words a minute”.
The rapper also explained that he learned to use a typewriter at school. “I was one of those students — I took woodworking class, metalwork class, typing and home economics,” he said. “I just didn’t want to be in class with boys and girls and goofs and then go home and get in trouble for fighting.”
Earlier this month, Snoop and hip-hop veterans Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40 announced their new album, Snoop, Cube, 40, $hort, under Mount Westmore.
In a three-star review, NME described the record as “a bumpy but sometimes brilliant trip down Sunset Boulevard”.
He continued, “’Snoop, Cube, 40, $hort’ is not entirely without praise; encompassing four different styles and personalities is no mean feat. But while there are bright moments, there are clearly too many cooks in the kitchen.”
Elsewhere, Snoop recently announced that his new crop group can no longer be called the Snoop Loopz.
