Ahead of his much awaited album release, Snoop Dogg has released a new single from it in the form of ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones.’ Only an audio version of it has been released so far, and is available to stream via all major platforms. Snoop Dogg has used this track to sort of dissolve his beef with Suge Knight, his former boss at the Death Row label.
The song starts off with an interview where Snoop is asked whether he still has a good relationship with Knight today. He replies, “Yeah, sure, we’re cool as a motherf**ker,” in true Snoop Dogg style. He proclaims in the lyrics, “Yeah, he did some bullshit. I’m admitting that. But coming at a real Crip like he ain’t one. Especially when he help f**king make one.”
Death Row was a label that picked up greats like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and was instrumental in providing them with the right platforms at the start of their careers. However, following the murder of Tupac Shakur, a few former Death Row artists, including Snoop Dogg, accused Knight of being involved in the murder.
In 2002, in his song ‘Pimp Slapp’d,’ he renounced Knight and Death Row, while in 2006 Snoop again attacked Knight verbally. To this, Knight responded by stating that Snoop was a ‘police informer’ who ‘never goes to jail.’ With ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones,’ Snoop Dogg has confirmed that whatever their former tiffs, they are now pretty much on good terms with each other.
Snoop is all set to release his seventeenth studio album titled, I Wanna Thank Me. He has already shared another big track from the album, which is also called ‘I Wanna Thank Me.’ This new album follows his 2018 gospel album Bible of Love, which was met with mixed reviews.
I Wanna Thank Me will be hitting streaming platforms in its entirety on August 16.
