Snoop Dogg is one of hip-hop’s most successful figures and was deep in West Coast gang culture as an adolescent. As a teen living in the impoverished Eastside neighbourhood of Long Beach, Snoop Dogg (real name Calvin Broadus) got caught up in the gang culture that plagued his area.
Before he entered the music industry, Broadus was a permanent member of his region’s gang, the Rollin 20s Crips, that operated South of 21st Street and East of Long Beach Boulevard, where Snoop lived.
Following this, when he entered the music industry, Broadus became a prodigy child of Dr Dre and Suge Knight, a notorious LA mobster. Furthermore, he was 2Pac’s right-hand man and partner in crime.
However, despite the lyricist’s exposure to all sorts of violence and hostility growing up, there is one benign farm animal that still frightens Snoop Dogg, and in a GGN News interview with Tiffany Haddish, he unveiled the animal he can’t face.
During the conversation between the comedian and Snoop, Haddish explained that she wanted to raise horses before she entered comedy, as she enjoyed riding the animal in her youth. However, this evoked a strong disdain from the Doggystyle musician.
Unveiling that he has a phobia of horses, Broadus exclaimed, “I’m scared of horses. I’m scared of horses to this day, Tiff. I don’t know why I’m just f*cking scared of them.” This shocked Haddish.
After asking the Doggfather, “Are you serious?” The West Coast musician swiftly responded, “I’m so serious. You ain’t never seen me in a scene with a horse. I done been in a scene with ostriches, iguanas, all kinds of sh*t. N*gga ain’t never been in a scene with a horse. N*gga get that motherf*cker away from me. I don’t know why.”
Still, the ‘Beautiful’ rhymer insisted he is open to potentially conquering his fear, stating, “I understand what a horse means to people,” he explained to Haddish. “Maybe one day somebody can introduce me to a baby horse. A little jackass or something that I can learn how to be around you motherf*ckers.”
