The legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has participated to Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM to talk about his new album ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, his late friend Nipsey Hussle and his opinions on Jay-Z’s deal with the NFL.
Snoop Dogg explained why he compared his late friend Nipsey Hussle to Jesus. He said touching words to Nip. He stated:
“Look at the impact that he had, the same impact Jesus had. A lot of people didn’t know him, but they sure wanted to know about him once he passed away. Then once they found out about him, they understood what his legacy was about. Now, his legacy is living even bigger with him not being here. So that’s why I say, ‘I ain’t never seen Jesus, but I’ve been hearing about him.’”
‘The Next Episode’ rapper also compared Nipsey to the other late hip-hop legend Tupac. He said:
“The spirit Nipsey had was the spirit Tupac had as far as being up close and personal with the people. I think Nipsey did what 2Pac couldn’t do… He don’t rap like him, but he moved like him.”
