SNOOP DOGG ON CORDAE WRITING FOR HIM: ‘IT’S ABOUT WHAT I CAN’T SEE.

Snoop Dogg has explained in a new interview why he’s happy to let other people write for him at this stage in his career.

Tha Doggfather’s most recent project, BODR, features a number of different artists including rising stars Jane Handcock, HeyDeon and Nefertitti Avani. But more than just guest artists, he also had Cordae write for him on the song “We Don’t Gotta Worry No More.”

Promoting his new Netflix film Day Shift alongside Jamie Foxx, Snoop stopped by the Rap Radar Podcast and talked about why he’s okay with people penning his raps, even though it’s long been considered a taboo thing to do in Hip Hop.

“I started off writing,” Snoop told B.Dot. “I started off writing for Dr. Dre, so what would I be if I didn’t allow somebody to write for me? Sometimes you gotta put yourself in the frame of letting somebody else depict a better picture for you because you can’t see everything.”

Snoop went on to give an example of another artist’s best work that was written by someone else: “I feel like Whitney Houston’s best record was The Bodyguard, when the other people came in and gave her records that weren’t hers, where she could just sit back and just sing and they embodied what they thought she should be.”

“That’s to the point in my career where I’m at now, where I’ve written so many hit records,” he continued. “It’s not about what I can write sometimes, it’s about what I can’t see that somebody else can write for me.”
