The Long Beach legend Snoop Dogg was so desperate to get his hands on weed during a trip to South Korea, he offered to record features for anyone who would hook him up, according to celebrity jeweler Ben Baller.
During his visit to the No Jumper podcast, Baller recalled the time Snoop needed some weed while he was out in the Asian country. He had provided Tha Doggfather with some green, but he quickly burned through it all and needed a reup.
According to Ben, Snoop put out a notice on social media letting his followers know that he would bless anyone who could bring him weed with a coveted guest verse.
“With Snoop’s first time going to Korea, he’s like, ‘Hey cuz, I need to get some weed.’ I was like, ‘Look, I’m going to get you some weed, don’t trip. I’m going to tell you what hotel to stay at where you can actually smoke,’” Ben recalled.
“So he goes there — this is like eight years ago — and I pretty much got all the weed possible in the entire country of Korea to his fucking hotel room. The funny thing is, he’s like, ‘Yo, this shit is off the hook!’”
He continued: “He runs through that, so Snoop goes on his social media, and he goes, ‘I don’t give a fuck who you are. Anybody in Korea right now, bring me whatever weed you have.’ And his manager got mad about the shit because what he offered was absolutely insane.
“Snoop goes ‘I’m doing features right now for weed, and I’m signing off on the clearance.’ If I was a rapper in, like, Indonesia or somewhere else, I would’ve flown to Korea [and] took the chance because, bro, the hardest part is the clearance right?”
