This weekend's New York Times Magazine contained an amusing interview with Snoop Dogg, whose 13th studio album, Bush, hits stores this week. Bush digs deep into the world of '80s funk with some help from Pharrell (who produced the whole album) and luminaries like Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson. In his conversation with NYT Magazine, Snoop discussed roads not taken, recent events in Baltimore, and Macklemore. Check out the highlights below:
On His Possible Alternate Career: "I think if rap never came out, I'd have been a R&B singer. I would have been like Rick James, though—an edgy renegade."
On His Poor Memory: "When's the last time I had a Snoop Dogg record out?"
On Baltimore: "Despite that man losing his life, so many people are gonna come together behind that—people who wouldn't have talked, who would have been killing each other, now they're gonna be with each other."
On The Next Generation Of White Rappers: "Rap is supposed to grow. One thing about Iggy and Macklemore: They got soul."
