The one thing Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg "bump heads" on

Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg are longtime collaborators. Ever since the Compton producer (real name Andre Young) was given Snoop’s demo by his brother Warren G, the two have been a dynamic duo and, since the 1990s, have made historic music.

Dr Dre is a known perfectionist and, when it comes to music, always makes sure that his collaborators deliver verses of the highest quality. Furthermore, he always ensures that his artists are composed when dealing with the media and public pressures.

That said, in a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s This Life of Mine radio show with James Corden, Young admitted that he isn’t always pleased with the way his friend (real name Calvin Broadus) operates. 

Young values quality over quantity when it comes to music. He has only released three solo studio albums himself and opened up about his thoughts on the reality that Snoop Dogg has 19 studio albums to his name.

Speaking about the Doggfather, Dre explained, “I personally think he does too much shit, and we’ve been battling and bumping heads about [it].” Dre believes his longtime collaborator releases too much music and sees him putting quantity over quality.

When asked by Corden if he tells Snoop Dogg this to his face, Dre exclaimed, “Hell yeah, I tell him that. I’m always in my big brother mode. I always tell him like, ‘Why the fuck are you doing this and that? Come on.’ He’s like, ‘Let me live Dr. Dre, cuz. Let me do my thing, man. Do I bother you about the shit you doing, cuz?'”

He continued, “So we have our — I call it sibling rivalries and shit like that — but I would love it if he’d just focus on this thing and make sure this thing right here that we’re working on is the best that it can be.”

During his appearance on The Life Is Mine, Dre looked back on his 2021 brain aneurysm and admitted that it made him value life more, disclosing, “It definitely makes you appreciate being alive, that’s for sure. It’s something you can’t control, it just happens. During those two weeks, I had three strokes.”
