West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg is realizing just how monumental the Death Row Records era really was. The hip-hop veteran has stepped up to share some eye-opening tattoo tribute artwork of himself and late former record labelmate Tupac Shakur.

Snoop is gearing up for one of the biggest battles of his entire career. Barring any changes, Dogg and longtime friend DMX will have their bangers broadcast next week on Instagram Live and Apple Music.

Wait, There’s More
In May 2020, DMX shared his thoughts about going up against fellow rap icon Eminem in a hits battle. The Ruff Ryders leader admitted he still wanted to face-off against music mogul JAY-Z.
“Em don’t want it,” X said in the footage. “I’d rather go with my arch nemesis – he don’t gotta come outside, he can sit in the house. He scared to go to the basement and play some records? … It’s a celebration, we’re celebrating music.” -DMX’s Instagram
Before You Go
Recently, New York rapper N.O.R.E. shared a huge shocker. N.O. said producer Swizz Beatz told him about an interest in Eminem facing off against X.
“This moment is so Legend !!! 3 minutes before this @therealswizzz CALLS X and says Eminem is down for that smoke and X SAY HE CAN GET BUT I STILL WANT JAY HAHA SO CLASSIC BEHIND THE SCENES S**T SORRY IF I WASNT POST TO SAY NOTHING but I had to DMX VS SLIM SHADY???
