The only word I can explain it with is…" — he pauses for dramatic effect — "exuberance… You see the love, from the babies to the owner to the maid, there's no in between when it comes to this love over here, they're feelin' Snoop Dogg, you know what I'm sayin'? I think I do know what he's saying but a conversation with Snoop is always going to be an exercise in cultural semaphore.
He speaks like he raps, in a stream of lyrical consciousness that is sometimes brilliant, sometimes baffling but which almost always contains a present participle with a dropped "g". He discovered his talent for rap at the age of 15 when he took part in hip hop battles in high school.
In church I did a lot of plays, my mother made me play characters, do a lot of drama and acting, trying to become someone else. So it helped me create who I am, to create Snoop Dogg. Later on he adopted it as his rap persona, claiming that he was Snoopy's forgotten canine brother: In reality, he was the second of three sons, raised by his mother and stepfather, Calvin, in Long Beach, California. His father, Vernall, was a Vietnam veteran and mail carrier who was absent for much of Snoop's childhood.
As a teenager, Snoop fell in with the Crips, one of the largest and most violent gangs in America. Interestingly, given that he never knew his father, he compares the experience to being part of a family albeit a murderous, very scary family.
We're not just killing people every night, we're just hanging out, having a good time and we're in the gang… So it's like, it's more a family than anything, and it's easier to become family than it is to get a job. Inside, he entertained other inmates with his rapping, and on his release was signed up by the fledgling Death Row Records to record his first album under the mentorship of NWA's Dr Dre.
The result — Doggystyle — was to change the sound of hip-hop for ever.Dr. Dre Speaks At Snoop Dogg's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony 11.19.18
The James Brown breakbeat samples that had for so long dominated the scene were replaced with funk hooks and snippets recorded by real musicians. Dr Dre's insistence on live instrumentation, the old-school influences of Isaac Hayes, George Clinton and Curtis Mayfield, and a slower, lower-key rapping style opened up a whole new hip-hop idiom termed G-funk.
The success of Doggystyle cemented Snoop's reputation and he soon had enough money to rent his own apartment and a bodyguard, McKinley Lee. In Lee and Snoop were allegedly "disrespected" by a rival gang member. A row ensued, shots were fired and two bullets hit the man, who collapsed and died in an alleyway.
During the murder trial, Snoop and Lee argued they had acted in self-defence and were acquitted. Controversy trailed him throughout the 90s — there were police cautions for drug possession and affray.
In his friend and label-mate Tupac Shakur was gunned down. Does Snoop have any regrets about his violent past? He became famous for his vocal style — while other hip-hop stars were shouting, Snoop was whispering with intent — and for his laidback, easy-come-easy-go persona that ensured his music had huge crossover appeal. He married Shante, his high school sweetheart, in and although the couple almost divorced in amid constant rumours of his infidelity, they now have three children — two teenage boys, Cordell and Corde, and an year-old daughter, Cori.
When I ask Snoop about his wife, his shoulders relax. That's just what it is, despite the ups and downs and the trials and tribulations and the temptations that I've been through in the industry and life in general.
She's the strongest person in my life because she's my backbone. She's my love, the mother of my kids, the love of my life, my heart, my soul. We made for each other. No matter how old she gets, how many changes she goes through physically, I'm connected with her spiritually so that's where our connection lies.
And yet at the live gig I go to two days before our interview, he delivers a storming set that has the many women in the crowd singing along with the rest of them. They all seem so hypnotised by the rhythm of his words, by the showmanship of the man himself, that either they do not care about the content of what he is saying or they have simply forgotten to listen.
Because, in many ways, Snoop's career has followed the arc of hip-hop itself: How does Snoop feel about some of his more profoundly sexist lyrics? I love the shit that I sing, the things that I did, and I love performing those records on stage and seeing the people singing with me because that's the time of my life, that's what I felt. See, what people don't understand is we were brainwashed not to know. So, my whole life I was taught that it was OK to call a woman a bitch once you get in a position to have power.
Once you became a pimp or a player that was the appropriate language to call a woman and she respected that.
But as I became a man, and seeing that wasn't the right way, I put a U-turn in and I changed direction. When you don't know, you don't know. When you know, you supposed to make a change and that's what I did. Aren't they derogatory terms for women?

Some of these men are bitches too. It's a figure of speech, it has no meaning connected to it… Terminology-wise, in the rap world, that's just a cool slick word that sounds appropriate with our records. Our forefathers, the ones who wrote rap before us, they said it. So when we got it, we said it.
Look at all the comedians in the 70s and 80s: The more power they get, the more voice they get to shift certain things around. Now I have a daughter, I understand. When I didn't have a daughter, I didn't understand.
I was speaking from the mind of a young adolescent.
