Drop it Like It's Pot

Rapper Snoop Dogg has ventured into new territory, that being country music, and has released a Western-style video dedicated to Johnny Cash, reports Starpulse.com.

The hip-hop singer said, "I went to the CMT Music Awards and I got into the spirit of wanting to do something different. Country music is the most underrated music in the world."

Naturally, I was all: 0_o really??



But you know what? I like it. The *idea* of Snoop singing country is far more disturbing than the reality of it. I doubt Johnny Cash would think much of being branded "a real American gangster," but the damn thing's catchy. And I admire his openness to other brands of music.

This is far from the first tangent he's explored. Take Sensual Seduction, for example.

Sleazy 70s vibe and Keyboard Guitar FTW.
