So Snoop Dogg, as Snoop Lion, held a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session Wednesday afternoon and in contrast to recent chats with Trent Reznor and Das Racist’s Heems, the conversation didn’t span the range of the artist’s illustrious career, venture into broader social topics, or even stir up some controversy. Instead — and we admit our brazen foolishness in expecting anything else — the fan-run Q&A focused on one, ahem, heady subject to the exclusion of most others. You guessed it: weed. When the peanut gallery did stretch out into other territory, the queries were often still couched within a marijuana haze, and in the rare instances that they asked about the music, Snoop almost invariably directed them to the lyric video to his new Major Lazer-produced single, “Here Comes the King.”
So what was it like to read through the entire thing on the hunt for some tasty quotes? Have you ever been shrunken to the size of a pea and dropped inside of a bong that someone is absentmindedly swirling so that you keep winding up at the same place over and over again, which doesn’t much matter anyway because it’d be impossible to tell if the scenery has changed since it’s all resin-coated and you’re high out of your mind and attempting to ask a giant weed leaf why it does the things that it does? Well, yeah, it was kinda like that. Inspired by the freewheeling spirit of the conversation, we’ve excerpted a handful of highlights from the AMA, which you’re welcome to sift through after watching the clip that Mr. Lion so desperately wants you to watch.
Get your giggle on.
