Snoop Criticizes Dr. Dre
Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre are as close as peanut butter and jelly, but the Doggfather had some choice words for his old friend and mentor regarding the approach on Dre's long-delayed Detox album. According to Snoop, the Doctor is screwing with the formula that made 1992's The Chronic and 1999's 2001 classic albums.
"He's got a strong work ethic and I'm gonna say this," Snoop Dogg told Tim Westwood. "I don't know if it's gonna ruffle any feathers, I just think the wrong people are in the environment. When he made records that were hit records in the past, D.O.C., Snoop Dogg, RBX, Kurupt, it's pieces that's not there that need to be there. And I'll say D.O.C. and Snoop Dogg is the backbone. When you take those two equations and take them out of the equation, it's not gonna work. You need to put them two back into the equation and let us mastermind head the project like we did Chronic and 2001. That's what's missing."
