He’s collaborated with Miley Cyrus and gone reggae, and now the artist sometimes known as Snoop Lion is adding nail art enthusiast to resume. While you were deciding between whether or not to stick with winter colors or dive into some lime green, Snoop Dogg was getting a manicure (his first to our knowledge) in the comfort of his own home. Hey, Nice Nails! made a house call for the King of the LBC, adorning his digits with appropriate decals (a marijuana leaf, dollar sign). Snoop opted for a duo-chrome French manicure, a modern take on a reliable classic.
The 4th wild season of Love & Hip Hop drew to a (predictably) wild close last night with the second installment of their big reunion. Of course, even with all the insanity from the past season, it still isn’t the most outrageous thing to ever happen in hip hop. No, that honor goes to these crazy album covers!
As we mark the 20th anniversary of Snoop Dogg‘s debut album Doggystyle, we couldn’t help but think of the stage name changes Snoop has gone through since living in that Doggy Dogg World. And he’s clearly not alone — other rappers have gone by various names during their careers.
Snoop Dogg‘s Doggystyle is regarded as one of the landmark albums in hip-hop history and, along with Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic, the LPs that exemplify the West Coast G-Funk sound. The album dropped on November 23, 1993, and today is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its release.
