Snoop Dogg and Jamie Foxx visited Sway in the Morning on Wednesday and spoke about a number of topics.
At one point, the hip-hop stars compare today’s acts with rap veterans. Sway asks Snoop what he thinks about the disconnect between the current generation and the rap legends who built the game, such as Tupac.
“Miscommunication, speaking different languages, and no history,” Snoop explains. “If you’re not teaching about the greats, how can you say he’s great. We know he’s great ’cause we grew with him. But the young generation didn’t get nothing but a few pictures, a couple of stories, a couple of tv shows. But not really the insight on who this man was.” Snoop continues on to blame his generation, the elders, for not properly teaching the next generation about the importance of hip-hop legends and heroes.
Moving on to a lighter topic, Sway asks both Jamie Foxx and Snoop to lay down a freestyle for him. Instead of creating a traditional bar for bar rap freestyle, the two craft a song around a soulful instrumental instead.
