You don't like cereal? What is your favourite cereal?
I like Captain Crunch. (Laughs)

And you are Snoop Doggy Dogg in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. And Snoop, you're also working on Starsky And Hutch.
Yeah, it's done. [long pause] You're funnier than a motherfucker. Lookin' at you make a motherfucker straight laugh. [laughs]
Archbishop Don Magic Juan: [ Laughs]  Chuuuch!

You are Snoop Doggy Dogg and you work with Fred Williamson.
[laughs] Yeah, "The Hammer". I worked with "The Hammer."

"The Hammer!" And Fred "The Hammer" Williamson posed for Playgirl years ago, so the question arises, would Snoop Doggy Dogg ever pose for Playgirl?
It depends on how much money they got.

You are Snoop Doggy Dogg. Now Snoop Doggy Dogg, would you ever wear a dress, like say, Flip Wilson. [hands Snoop a Flip Wilson record]
Never. No. Never, never, never, never, never, never.

You'd never wear a dress?
Never. No. Never, never, no never, never, never, never.
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  Preach!

Now what about Flip Wilson and why won't you wear a dress?
Flip Wilson was a comedian and he played characters like that. I don't get out like that. He was Geraldine. Wasn't that the character he played? He was sharp, you know what I am saying? That's him. I can't do that.

You couldn't see Snoop in that dress then. And Snoop Doggy Dogg, your influence goes pretty far and I wanted to ask you, right here, about a little interview I did a while back with Vanilla Ice. Do you remember Vanilla Ice?
Yeah, I remember.
Vanilla Ice, Snoop Doggy Dogg. He claims that he paved the way for Snoop Dogg and Death Row Records, believe it or not. That's what he said. Snoop Dogg wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Death Row Records and Vanilla Ice. And we're gonna play it right here [Nardwuar takes out his handy-cam with the Vanilla Ice interview all cued up on it ] Snoop Doggy Dogg, check what Vanilla Ice has to say to you.

[Nardwuar plays Snoop a video clip of Vanilla Ice's interview]

Nardwuar: Vanilla Ice, did you pave the way for Snoop Doggy Dogg and Death Row Records? If it wasn't for Vanilla Ice, would there be Snoop Doggy Dogg or Death Row Records?
Vanilla Ice: Man c'mon, you're stretching it, dude. No, no, no I mean---

Nardwuar: You did pave the way though, didn't you? Indirectly, there would be no Snoopy Doggy Dogg if there wasn't Vanilla Ice, right?
Vanilla Ice: Well y' know you said the word indirectly. Everybody knows about the Suge Knight incident and yes in a way I contributed to the Chronic record, Snoop Dogg and Tupac. I funded, basically, initially, the beginning of that whole Death Row project, indirectly. [laughs] But I---

Nardwuar: Willingly?
Vanilla Ice: Well no, not willingly but y'know what? It was all good because I look at it in a positive way. I got way more money than I ever expected today and basically I look at it like it was an investment in some of the best hip-hop ever to live and ever come out. So I'm happy for it y'know? I'm happy for it.

What do you think about that Snoop?
If that's the way he feel, he telling the truth.  You know, you gotta speak what's from your heart, your mind. Check this out, this is Vanilla Ice talking about "Who is Mini-Me?"

[Nardwuar plays another clip from his Vanilla Ice Interview]

Nardwuar: Vanilla Ice, who is Mini-Me?
Vanilla Ice: Mini-me?

Nardwuar: Who is Mini-Me, Vanilla Ice?
Vanilla Ice: Let's see, "m" and "m." M-M, Mini-Me.

Nardwuar: Eminem.
Vanilla Ice: Well, yo. Y'know what it is? I... it's like this [raps] It's been a long time since ya seen me on the TV. V-Ice is here for she-zee, takin' what's mine 'cause it's my time to hit y'all with a new style of rhyme. Yeah, this is hip rock. It can't be stopped. I bomb the system, straight to the top. Millions of dollars, I been spendin' em. I love rap, I paved the way for Eminem. Needless to say, I rap back today, y'all forgot about me, like y'all forgot about Dre. But I'm still here, with no fear, I say what I want and I make sure it's clear.

Nardwuar: Yeah! Vanilla Ice. Take that Eminem!
Vanilla Ice: [laughs]

What do you think about that Snoop Doggy Dogg?
[Stoned laughter] You're Stupid. You're stupider than a motherfucker.

No words for Vanilla Ice? He's just a stupid motherfucker?
No, no, I didn't say he's stupid. I said you're stupider than a motherfucker.

Thank you Snoop Doggy Dogg. I appreciate that. And winding up here, Snoop Doggy Dogg. You have done everything haven't you? You've pretty much done everything.
Everything except, your mother.

Well, actually there is one thing you have not done Snoop Doggy Dogg. You have not done a ventriloquist record yet. Have you ever thought about doing a ventriloquist record, Snoop Doggy Dogg? [hands Snoop "The Race Track" record by Richard and Willie]
See, I like that. That's kinda horror right there. I might have to. Richard And Willie, I remember them. We used to have these records back at the house. I might have to do that. That would be some fly shit. That some smart shit that your funny lookin' ass done said.

That's a ventriloquist record. I thought that you'd maybe do that on your show. That would be pretty cool.
I like that. That's sharp. I might have to. But I'm gonna let you be the one to put your hand up cuz's (the dummies) ass while I do all the talking.



Snoop Doggy Dogg I want to ask you about crafty people. Could you tell me the story behind this record here? Chronic 2000. [Shows Snoop the record] Now Suge Knight put this out before Dr. Dre could call his record The Chronic. Is that how crafty Suge Knight is? And there's a guy on here called Swoop. That's kinda weird isn't it?
Mmmm. That shit is wack. Basically it's like, how would you say it, you know, bullshit and real shit. You put the bullshit out first to pave the way for the real shit. You know, he tried to beat us to the punch with this, but how many copies did he sell? About 15,000? He probably bought all of them. There's some shit I don't want.

And you are Snoop Doggy Dogg. And winding up here Snoop Doggy Dogg in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Did you know that Jimmie Walker was the official comedian for the Black Panthers?
No, I didn't know that. That's news to my ears. And why would you say that?

He was the official comedian of the Black Panthers. He really was, going way back when...
He was Chuuuch?
Archbishop Don Magic Juan: First I heard of that. I've been knowin' Jimmie since early in his career and I know a few of the party members, y'know, Mark Clark from outta Chicago. But this is the first I heard of that.

It's on his website.
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  It's a strong possibility. Sammy Davis Jr. worked with them   also, so it's a strong possibility.

I did an interview with him and he did admit it.
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  That's a beautiful thing.

[Note: From <>: "Nardwuar vs. Jimmie Walker: August 14 2001: I was the official comedian for the Black Panthers for about two years, the official comedian for the Black Panthers in the east, ladies and gentlemen! And I used to always think, because they would always brought guns to these cultural meetings, if the guy didn't like me, who was standing by watching the door, well he could just pick up his gun and go, "Pow! Done!" (laughs)]

And winding up here Snoop Doggy Dogg, I wanted to ask you about these guys, the Lifers Group. [ hands Snoop the Lifers Group record ]  These guys recorded in jail. Have you ever thought about doing a project like that? Y'know, like getting some guys in jail to record? This the Lifers Group, a sort of East Coast-type thing.
Yeah, that's cool. That's cool. I wouldn't do that. I would do something totally different though. But that's fly though. I've seen it. I've heard it. It was dope.

Well, thanks very much Snoop Doggy Dogg and Archbishop Don...
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  Magic Juan,  chairman of the board of famous playas everywhere. Chuuuch.

I appreciate your time and I want to leave you Snoop Doggy Dogg with a little joke that I have. Snoop Doggy Dogg, thanks for speaking to me, Nardwuar The Human Serviette. How does Snoop Doggy Dogg keep his whitest clothes the whitest?
Mmmm. Stay 15 feet away from the suckas, at all times.

No. He uses lots of blee-ATTCH!
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  They learnin' over here. Yeah, they learnin'. That's cool.

How was that? How was that?
I got a joke for you.

Go ahead Snoop Doggy Dogg.
Let's say for instance you....[laughs]...I have this... it's not a joke. This guy he used to work out here at MuchMusic, his name is Malone Brown, you ever heard of him?

No I have not.
Malone Brown.

No I have not.
Malone Brown dick in your mouth.

Ba-boom!! Snoop Doggy Dogg in da house!
Archbishop Don Magic Juan:  Now that's gangsta.
Thank you.

Thanks very much Snoop. Keep on rockin' in the free world and doot doola doot doot...
Doot doo.
