Dazed & Confused August 2012 : Snoop Dogg by Theo Wenner


Quote:
With the August issue of Dazed out today, featuring the one and only Snoop Dogg on the cover, we let California-based writer Caroline Ryder talk us through the day she spent with the rapper...

When I met Snoop Dogg he was getting his Dazed cover photo taken by Theo Wenner, son of Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner, at a boxing gym on the corner of Santa Monica and Vine in the heart of Hollywood. “I like that kid... he’s hungry,” remarked Snoop of the photographer, leaning on the ropes of the small boxing ring. The aroma of sweet sensimilla was never far away.

Snoop was with his entourage, including his hair stylist who has been with him since the old days, back in Long Beach. “We’ve been through a lot of different styles”, she said as Snoop posed for Theo and his team. Right now she’s working on a new look for Snoop – dreads. The G-funk superstar and gangsta rapper is going through a soul transformation, embracing Rastafarianism after several trips to Jamaica this year. Ganja is of course part and parcel of being rastafari—but Snoop Dogg always had that covered anyway. He frequently steps out of the gym, disappearing into the trailer parked outside, to “rest” (roll some fresh ones). When he invited Dazed to smoke up with him, it was impossible to refuse, if only out of respect for Jah.

Smoking blunts with Snoop Dogg is one of those things you dream about as a teenager, and even more surreal when it actually happens. Our super stoned conversation took vast and random tangential leaps, topics of discussion ranging from “pussy as a renewable resource”, his bro-love for Wiz Khalifa, how “Warren G Daddy” makes the best chronic cake, what it feels like getting smoked out by Willie Nelson and the time actor Vince Vaughan punched him in the face, on the set of Starsky and Hutch. Took Snoop by surprise, that did.

“This mother****er slapped the **** out of me and it was never even a part of the movie,” Snoop recalls, twiddling on the blunt between his fingers. “I wanted to break out of character and sock him in his face, but I stayed down and held and delivered my lines, and the director said cut and everybody started clapping and ****. Man, did he slap the dog **** outta me. My security should have ****ed him up… but he become my homeboy after that.”

It's funny I like Snoop so I don't really have big complaints about the cover.

I love Snoop Dogg now and forever, this is hilarious and fun.

I think Dazed gets to have a lot of fun with their covers, they aren't tied to JUST producing a slick fashion image, sometimes the covers can be serious, or silly or just plain left of field.

Exactly.. this is what I love about Dazed, that they have the freedom to do whatever the hell they want.
