Jay Z Threatened To End NFL Deal Unless Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg Performed At Halftime Show
Snoop Dogg has recently revealed that Jay-Z threatened to end his NFL deal unless Dr. Dre, Snopp Dogg, etc. performed at the the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show. During an interview with TIDAL, Snoop said, “We love each other. Like, not secretly, like publicly, we love each other. It is what it is, so it’s like for him to go to bat for us and tell the NFL, ‘F**k that. They perform or I quit,’ that was the most gangster sh*t out of everything.”
The NFL was also concerned about Snoop’s onstage attire, but JAY-Z told him not to worry. Snoop explained, “Then with attire and kneeling and all this … you can’t wear your gangbang sh*t? JAY-Z hit me like, ‘Wear what the f**k you want to wear. Peace to the Gods.'”
Snoop said that he and Jay performed after the performance, saying, “So then he came down, and soon as he came in he hugged me. We hug each other tight. It was as if we won a championship. Like, you know when you’re genuinely happy for each other? People don’t understand, me and him are the ones. He’s the one on the East. I’m the one from the West.”
DR. DRE’S ATTORNEY CLARIFIES THAT HE STILL OWNS ‘THE CHRONIC’
Meanwhile, Dr. Dre’s attorney Howard King has released a statement claiming that his client still owns The Chronic despite recent comments that Snoop Dogg made where he told Complex that he owns Dre’s debut album.
King told Complex earlier this week in a statement, “There are false reports out regarding ownership by Death Row of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. Dr. Dre owns 100 percent of The Chronic.”
