Snoop Dogg Explains How Meeting DMX Inspired The Late Rapper’s First Hit

During his Monday appearance on The Tonight Show, Snoop Dogg opened up about meeting DMX in the 1990s. DMX passed away on April 14th due to health related issues. Snoop said after the two met, they headed to the studio. “He brought up a story that was so, so, so deep and instrumental to our relationship,” he recalled. “He was like, ‘When you first met me, I was, like, away from him. And he was saying, ‘What’s happening? What’s up?’ And I was like, ‘Get at me, dog!'”
“And he was like, ‘I took that and I made that into my song, ‘Get at Me Dog’ cause the way you got at me,’ and said that, I was like, ‘That’s slick,'” he continued.
Most recently, the two collided on a Verzuz battle in July 2020. Aside from celebrating their own hits, Snoop explained that the live stream event helped viewers “see two dogs that naturally loved each other, celebrate each other in the name of hip-hop.” “Legends never die, their soul will continue to bless the world and he was a great spirit who always looked out for everybody,” he added. “He always prayed for everybody.”
