Snoop Claims Biggie Tried To Have Him Shot & Explains How They Made Peace (Video)

BY BANDINI • JUNE 11, 2018

While Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls had the most storied and ultimately tragic Rap beef in history, there were other moments that greatly defined a coastal conflict between the Death Row and Bad Boy labels. In 1995, there was a shooting in Red Hook, Brooklyn while Tha Dogg Pound and Snoop Dogg filmed the “New York, New York” video. The moment was addressed on BET’s Death Row Chronicles earlier this year. Snoop Dogg, who is in the video and was present during the shooting, says he has never spoken about it. He opens up now.

Appearing on The Rap Radar Podcast, Snoop Dogg spoke candidly about what went down in 1995, and a subsequent peace meeting. At 46:30, Brian “B.Dot” Miller asks Snoop about speculation surrounding Suge Knight’s involvement “in certain activities or certain situations that may have went down in Hip-Hop.” Snoop responds, “I don’t know, ’cause I wasn’t with [Suge Knight and his entourage] like that. That gangsta sh*t, they did on their own. If you watch any of these shows, whether it’s [USA’s] Unsolved, Snoop Dogg was never in the equation. I watched that Unsolved sh*t; I watched every f*ckin’ episode. Only one event they had with me in there: getting shot at in New York. I don’t know how the f*ck they found out about that, ’cause we ain’t never said nothin’ ’bout that. Never! And they showed it the correct way, with Biggie [Smalls] callin’ the shot, gettin’ us shot at,” explains Snoop.

As an artist on Death Row between 1992 and 1997, Snoop continues, “We went up to the radio station to get at [Funkmaster] Flex so we could let everybody in New York know that ‘we brought our lowriders out, we’re shooting a video, all the New York rappers, come f*ck with us, ni**a—we out here! Come be a part of this video. We get down wit’ y’all.’ But Flex froze us, like, ‘Nah, y’all can’t come up.’ So we go back to the video [shoot]. We’re listening to HOT 97, ’cause that’s the sh*t—we’re from L.A., we love New York. We’re listening to HOT 97. Flex gets a call from Biggie. That ni**a Biggie goes, ‘What’s happenin’, ni**a? Red Hook [is where Tha Dogg Pound and Snoop Dogg are] shooting a video. Brooklyn, stand up!’ We don’t know what that means; we think ni**as are comin’ to show some love, like ‘Brooklyn, stand up.’ So we’re still shooting the video. Tha Dogg Pound, we’re all out in the snow in front of the bricks [and] go back to the trailer. And watch Unsolved. [Laughs]” Snoop is referring to someone shooting at the artists’ trailer.
