As The Sheen will tell you, “winning” isn’t just the opposite of losing. It’s a way of life. And a line of t-shirts. And it could be, according to Jimmy Fallon, a fragrance. Well, Sheen’s “winning” dictum has taken one more step from being a mere internet meme to being added to the OED as hashtagged slang. His Sheenness has collaborated with none other than Snoop Dogg to drop a #winning-inspired rap, whose download proceeds will apparently be donated to assist those affected by last month’s tornadoes in the South. Take a listen to the NSFW track below:
Tag: Snoop Dogg (21-30 of 35)
Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson have a lot in common: They’re both legends in their respective genres. They each make dubious choices when it comes to collaborators. Both are braid enthusiasts. And both love country music.
Of course, they are also both advocates of a certain herbal substance that will grab a handful of headlines today. Appropriately, Snoop just dropped a new video for “Superman,” which features a guest spot from Nelson. Check it out after the jump.
Charlie Sheen’s My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour begins in a few days, and no one has a clue what’s in store for those in attendance.
But he may have given us a hint via Twitter over the weekend. E! spotted a twitpic that shows him, rapper Snoop Dogg, and the tour’s music director Robert Patterson (also the former guitarist for Korn) working on some tunes.
Late hip-hop crooner Nate Dogg was laid to rest Saturday in his Long Beach, California hometown. MTV reports that thousands of fans and family members attended the funeral service at Long Beach Cruise Terminal. Among them were music peers Dr. Dre, Game, DJ Quik, Mack-10, WC, DJ Pooh, and fellow 213 group members Snoop Dogg and Warren G.
Snoop recalled how their friendship began 25 years ago. “1986, Poly High School, that’s where we connected for the first time,” Snoop said. “We didn’t know each other, but the music connected us. We built a brotherhood.”
The pairing of new school rhymer Wiz Khalifa and rap icon Snoop Dogg is a match made in chronic heaven.
The two avid weed puffers are taking their friendship further than just music and creating a movie called, fittingly, High School. The stoner comedy will likely be released sooner than later, Khalifa confirmed to Rolling Stone.
“It should be coming out pretty soon. It’s about pot, of course,” he said. “But it’s about me [sic] and his relationship. A spin-off of us being cool in the industry, smoking a lot of weed, and being around a lot of weed. We’re going to try to have fun with it and also try to enlighten people at the same time, not just get everybody high.”
Okay, so now I’m actually starting to believe Dr. Dre‘s Detox is coming soon. “Kush,” the album’s lead single leaked online last month and positive feedback demanded they run with it. Acting fast, the video was released this morning. The legendary California producer teams up with singer Akon and frequent collaborator Snoop Dogg here. In the clip Dre and Snoop hit the club to spark up some fun while Akon makes it rain in a private jet cruising over the city. Visually, it’s an interesting video. The trio are the only ones moving in the majority of it. Motionless party-goers are seen enjoying various facets of after hours fun, be it exhaling puffs of smoke, knocking back a drink, or dancing. Flight attendants are frozen, as is the cash Akon tosses up on his plane.
The camera work is not untraveled territory, though. T-Pain’s recent “Rap Song” features the style. As does Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” with slow motion and rewinding at times. But Dre’s has a Cali-cool vibe that’s all its own.
Check out the video after the jump and let us know what you think. But beware: the language is NSFW.
Though it’s been rumored, we’ve got no clue if Prince William of Wales has invited hip-hop royalty to his upcoming spring wedding to Kate Middleton. But California king Snoop Dogg already has a track that he says is tailor made for the king-to-be’s bachelor party. In a press release Snoop says the second single from his forthcoming Doggumentary Music, “Wet,” is “the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.” Fittingly, the song will make its debut at 4:20 pm PST today on his website.
Prince William’s known to a be huge fan of hip-hop titans like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Diddy–all of whom would seemingly be “safer” picks as invitees to such a regal event. But Snoop sure does up the cool factor several notches. What do you think of Snoop’s unencouraged act of assistance? Will you be checking in later to find out what he laced William with? Spark up some dialogue in the comments.

Halo: Reach, the latest iteration in the Halo franchise, was released yesterday, and some surprising inclusions to the legions of nerds already playing online are hip-hop artists Snoop Dogg and LL Cool J.
The two filmed a Funnyordie.com video of their game along with Wayne Newton — a.k.a. Mr. Las Vegas — and Chuck actor Zachary Levi, which provided at least one major revelation: Celebrities and seminal gangster rappers are just as infantile while playing video games as the rest of us.
Although Snoop seems to be the better player (he’s got the build of a gamer, after all), LL Cool J utters what probably should have been the tagline of the game: “Halo: Reach: You can’t ‘Reach’ me, baby.” Snoop, who plays under the handle “thedoggfather,”pays him back with an obscene in-game celebratory gesture. Way to keep it classy, Snoop.
Check out their gaming skills in the semi-NSFW video after the jump. READ FULL STORY
