Snoop Dogg called for a “Revolution” in his last video, but this time around, he pokes fun at rap’s new school in the visual to “Moment I Feared”.
The clip begins with Snoop and Bay Area producer Rick Rock appearing on an episode of his GGN show, as they discuss the state of the genre. “It’s a young man’s game,” says Snoop. “I commend the young homies for doing they thing. They different. They look different. They rap different, but that’s what hip-hop is. It’s meant to be different.”
However, after the weather report segment, a character named Fonz D-Low comes out wearing tight clothing, a pink purse, and red dreadlocks, looking similar to popular young rappers such as Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty and Young Thug.
Later, Snoop declares that “sucker sh*t is running rampant” in hip-hop, saying it is the “moment I feared”.
Although the two vets appear to be making fun of younger rappers, Snoop tells Fonz D-Low that he respects him and “all the young homies that’s doing they thing”.
“When I was young, they didn’t understand me or respect me for what I did, but I grew into who I am and I think that’s what you’re doing.”
The jokes don’t stop though. Snoop asks D-Low if he’s gay. “Yes,” he responds. “I’m happy. I’m happy right now in my career.”
“Moment I Feared” appears on Snoop’s new album, Neva Left, which boasts appearances from Wiz Khalifa, KRS-One, Redman, Method Man, Devin the Dude, Too $hort, and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.
