50 Cent recently reacted to Snoop Dogg adding the alias "Lion" to his rap name and looked at both the positive and negative effects it could have. Supportive of Snoop's creativity, Fif did consider the impact the name could have on his youth football team.
"It's interesting," 50 told THR in an interview for his upcoming film Freelancers. "Of course, there will be some people who connect to it and there will be some people that run from it - I don't know how his little league team's parents will feel about his new persona. But again, it's a persona - these are the choices he's created for himself creatively. And, you know, I think it will work." 50 observes that not just Snoop but hip-hop itself has a long history of celebrating weed culture. "Snoop's always been that," he says. "In the very beginning, that was his consistent theme - he had the weed, and everything else was there. [But] for hip-hop culture, it will work, because there's enough of that going on; Wiz Khalifa, his entire theme is that. I've consistently seen artists sell 500,000 copies with that as a theme: Redman, Method Man, Styles P."
Snoop will always be Snoop DOGG to me!!
