Snoop Dogg was one of the celebrities who spoke at Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service, and he shared a story about the first time he heard the late rapper’s music.

“The first time I got his CD, I didn’t listen to it … I was at football practice. Then about a week later, I’m rolling up a blunt on his CD, and I open the CD up … I I was like ‘Damn, ‘cuz is hard!'” 

He added, “Long story short, we ended up connecting, we ended up making music together … we created a bond,” he continued. “We created something that was special.”
