For the past couple of months director Ernest Dickerson has been shooting his new movie Bones in my hood, Vancouver BC, Canada! Starring the amazing Pam Grier and the dog of all dogs, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Bones promises to be one cool flick. Despite a hectic schedule, Snoop put some time aside to talk. Alright, letís hit tha dogpound!
Nardwuar: Who are you?
You are Snoop Dogg in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and, Snoop, we would like to give you here (hands two bottles) some juice and some... Gin!
Now, Snoop, Bones, the movie. It was written for you. Thatís incredible!
1979 is the year. Harlem is the place?
Snoop is on the streets doing numbers?
Having a good time, and then comes in another influence: crack.
But, twenty-two years laterĖ
And you come back as a dog, Snoop Doggy Dogg? As the character Bones?
Now one of the people in the movie is Pam Grier (shows Coffy sound-track LP cover featuring Pam Grierís pic-ture). What can you tell the people about Pam Grier, Snoop?
Is there any nudity in the movie at all, Snoop? UhĖ Gratuitous nudity? That I would let you have to see with your own two eyes.
Your character does a lot of killing in the movie, I understand, Snoop?
There is some good horror.
Are there any puppets in the movie at all, Snoop?
Because Snoop youíre on No Limit Records, and Master P, he has a doll, doesnít he?
Which the question arises would you ever have a doll, Snoop? Is there a Snoop Doggy Dogg doll?
What do you think of this doll here, (shows Dennis Rodman doll) the Dennis Rodman one that theyíve come out with?
Thereís different dolls, and alsoĖ (pointing to the Rodman Doll) Thereís collared greens around his waist. With baby green hair. He comes with a wedding outfit that you can put on him as well.
And Snoop check out this doll that they have as well. The Redd Foxx doll. (shows Redd Foxx doll)
A flea market. A friend found it at a flea market for $8.00.
Uh, I think...
Iím not sure ifĖ
Uh, Iím not sureĖ
Oh please Snoop! Donít or my friend will kill me for that! But, Snoop, what I was curious about, Redd Foxx was a huge influence or influenced by this gentle-man here, Dolemite.
Like alot of people donít really know who Rudy Ray Moore is. Like they donít know. The legend! What is the legend of Rudy Ray Moore? Whatís your connection?
Snoop, you wear some incredible outfits in the movie, and especially right now. Is there going to be a line of clothing coming out?
