Snoop Dogg Raps “Gin and Juice” While Shaquille O’Neal Beatboxes on ‘Inside the NBA’
With 2018 All-Star Weekend being in Los Angeles, West Coast luminary, Snoop Dogg, has been serving as hip-hop's unofficial host for the festivities, like Drake two years ago in Toronto. And like Drizzy two years ago, Shaquille O'Neal had to bust out his best Rahzel impression when Snoop appeared on his show, Inside the NBA.
Uncle Snoop was a guest on the show yesterday (Feb. 17), and sat down with Shaq, Kenny Anderson, Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson. It didn't take long before the impromptu performance popped off with Snoop laying down the lines and Shaq providing the instrumental via mouth. Even the crowd started to get a little hype.
In 2016, Drake was being interviewed on the set when Shaq broke out the beatbox and Drizzy rapped the then newly minted "Back to Back" track.
Snoop put on for his coast by hosting the inaugural 2018 Hip-Hop All-Star Game on Friday (Feb. 16). The game featured star-studded rosters consisting of 2 Chainz, Quavo, Wale, Jadakiss, Lil Bibby, Young Dolph, Short Dawg, Key Glock, Machine Gun Kelly, YFN Lucci, Mozzy, Skooly, Trinidad James, Young M.A, Lil Dicky, Chris Brown, The Game, Kamaiyah, Snap Dogg, K Camp, Daylyt, Hitman Holla, Joe Moses, David Banner and TDot IllDude. In the end, Snoop's team won and the Doggfather took home the MVP trophy after posting 15 points, 25 rebounds and five blocks.
Quavo shined on behalf of hip-hop in the actual 2018 NBA Celebrity All-Star game, winning the MVP for his squad.
