Straight from the Dogg’s mouth. In a recent sitdown with Vibe Magazine, Snoop Dogg sounded off on the recent GQ Magazine cover story in which the publication compared Top Dawg Entertainment and it’s CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith to their West Coast forefathers, the infamous Death Row Records and it’s CEO Marion “Suge” Knight. Top Dawg has since removed Kendrick Lamar from any GQ sponsored activities, most notably their “Man Of The Year” event, which K. Dot was slated to headline.
According to Snoop:
“They’re (TDE) not the new Death Row. Because TDE did it completely different than Death Row did it. Death Row did it with a gangster approach. That was our mission. TDE… rappers. They’re peaceful, they love, they get down and they represent Hip-Hop.”
Do TDE and Death Row share similar values? Do they represent the same aesthetic in Hip-Hop? Or do you agree with Snoop’s estimation that the two are not alike in that regard? Let us know what you think in the comments.
