Looks like wine isn’t the only thing that gets better with time.
After sending shockwaves through the music industry by posting an Instagram pic of himself and former Death Row Records boss and arch nemesis Suge Knight partying it up in VIP, Snoop Dogg recently shed more light on the reunion and what prompted the reconciliation.
"I think time heals all wounds," Snoop told DJ Skee in a recent interview. "If that means putting my hand out saying I’m wrong, I apologize and we be cool, I’ll do that as opposed to me going behind my back, pulling a gun out and getting somebody or me doing something vicious to you."
This is certainly a much more positive tone Snoop has taken when it comes to his strained relationship with Knight. Since the rapper's departure from Death Row Records in 1998, the two have traded barbs and nearly come to blows on several occassion. In addition to the healing power of time, the Doggfather credited his newfound Rastafarian beliefs as the biggest contributor for the armistice. In his new documentary, Reincarnated, the West Coast MC acknowledged Knight's ability as an executive, dubbing him "the greatest West Coast business mind of all time."
"He gave me a voice to speak. I was like E.F. Hutton, when Snoop talked everybody listened."
Glad these two have buried the hatchet — some might say it was long overdue.
