Snoop Dogg rose to prominence in 1992, when he appeared on Dr. Dre’s debut solo single, “Deep Cover.” Jamie Foxx, on the other hand, saw fame for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biographical film Ray. The well-known rapper and actor have now teamed up for an action film, and Snoop had a great gift for Foxx.
According to ET, Snoop Dogg has gifted Jaime Fox, his Day Shift co-star, a Death Row chain. The two co-stars attended the red carpet premiere of their new Netflix action film together. Snoop took a moment to honor Jaime with a meaningful new piece of hardware.
“Yeah I got something for the Foxx man you know for looking out for me, for speaking up for me, for putting me in this motion picture. I wanted to gift him with something special.”
He then handed Foxx a red box labeled Death Row Records, which stunned the “Blame It” star. “You gotta be kidding me man,” he said. “You gotta be kidding me, man. This better not be what I think it is cause I saw everyone else getting one and I didn’t wanna say nothing in the interview.”
“The Death Row chain man. The Death Row chain man. Rose gold, and let me tell you why that’s so significant. I watched this man as a young artist sometimes have to fight for his life, and he was giving everybody anthems and songs. While we were partying and dancing sometimes he’d come to the crib and he’d be like, ‘I don’t know.’”
“So for this day to come to here for us to see him bloom it’s special. To see him kicking a*s in this movie as an actor, and at the same time anybody can tell you, Snoop is the ambassador of grace, entertainment and fun. Anytime you say Snoop Doggy Dogg, your soul lights up. So for this moment right here. It means everything my dude.”
Jaime Foxx was correct when he stated that everyone seems to be getting a Death Row chain these days. Snoop Dogg gave Stephen Curry his own chain for his 41st birthday, and he previously gave one to NFL star Eli Manning. LaKeith Stanfield, who played Snoop Dogg in Straight Outta Compton, slipped into Snoop’s comments to request his own Death Row chain.
For years, Snoop Dogg and Jaime Foxx have had nothing but love and respect for one another. The former even stated that a biopic of him would require someone of Foxx’s caliber. Let’s send them our best wishes for their upcoming action film. To get the latest updates, Keep an eye on Thirsty for more.
