Words by Jesse Serwer—
A few months back, shortly after Snoop Dogg’s press conference announcing his transformation into Snoop Lion, we sat down with Snoop and producer Diplo for an in-depth conversation on a wide variety of topics. One was Snoop’s relationship with Bunny Wailer. Another was dancehall phenom Popcaan, with whom the pair collaborated on “Lighters Up,” from Snoop’s upcoming Reincarnated album (and perhaps some other tracks from the LP as well?)
Watch the video to hear how Fry Yiy sold Snoop on his preferred drink of apple vodka, or more specifically a concoction of apple vodka and what Snoop thought was the old-school soft drink Squirt (Turns out it was actually Ting, the Jamaican grapefruit soda—Ed.) out what else Uncle Snoop had to say about his “nephew” Poppy and what he represents for dancehall in the video below. And tuned for our upcoming LargeUp TV episode “A Day in the Life With Popcaan”—and much more from our interview with Snoop and Diplo.
