The comedy “The Wash,” which opened on Wednesday, pits Snoop and co-star Dr. Dre against the imposing “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which opens Friday (November 16). Snoop isn’t stressing the stiff competition.
“I keep hearing about mutha
ing Harry Potter,” Snoop said. “I’m like, ‘Who is this mutha
er I keep hearing about?’ I don’t know him, but I do know this. Dre and Snoop, we’ve got a following that’s definitely dedicated and devoted, and that’s all that matters.
“We’re gonna crack a new audience, because I’ve been doing a lot of acting lately, and I’ve been gaining a new surplus of fans in the movie world,” he added. “I think they’ll see ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘The Wash.’ You never know.”
Snoop won’t be one of those people, however. “I’m not spending a dime on ‘Harry Potter,’ ” he said. “I’ll take [my kids] to go see ‘The Wash,’ and that’s just how it is. They might have to wait to get [‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’] on DVD.”
Fans won’t have to wait as long for more information on Big Snoop Dogg: Paid the Cost to Be the Boss. The Doggfather has been tightlipped about the record, only divulging that Kid Rock guests on one track.
However, producer Michael Angelo Saulsberry let one of the Dogg’s cats out the bag and said that Snoop has a track called “Whatever” that will be hitting clubs soon.
“It [has] a real interesting hook,” said Saulsberry, who also produced two tracks on Faith Evans’ Faithfully, including “You Gets No Love.” “Homie is talking about people talking about him on the street. So in the hook, he’s just being sarcastic. He goes, ‘Whatever, whatever,’ but he’s talking [really properly].
“The beat… it’s got a little Parliament, but it’s really beat and bass. It’s mid[tempo] to fast. It’s for the clubs. Everybody’s been saying he’s really back on this one.”
MCA, which is distributing Snoop’s album, said the LP does not have a release date yet.
