The Bromance Continues: Snoop Dogg, Mayer Hawthorne, Diplo & Soulja Boy Tell 'Em
Snoop w. homie D-Beckham Bend It
It's been just over a decade since Snoop Dogg started "fuckin' with white boyz in ninety-nine," as the outro of "White Boyz" (from the soundtrack to the movie Whiteboys), once so tastefully declared. Well, in 2010, it seems he might finally add a couple fellas of the pasty persuasion to his regular entourage.
In early November West Coast Sound alerted readers to what seemed to be a budding bromance between Snoop, Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, local soul sensation Mayer Hawthorne and producer Diplo (the latter two of which are, in case you didn't know, white boys). Via a series of praise-heavy tweets and video clips, it seemed remotely possible, if not borderline likely, that those four (possibly with the assistance of DJ Quik) could wind up recording an album together.
Well, thanks to Snoop's just-released music video/dramatic short for the song "Pronto," that odd quad are one step closer. The song "Pronto" hails from the Doggfather's new album, Malice N Wonderland, and features a guest appearance from Soulja Boy. The clip also features acting cameos from Hawthorne and Diplo, who seem to be accomplices to a gangsta coup led by their rap-inclined homeboys. Check it out.
