Snoop drinking gin in his usual understated manner
The Ladies of the Lane are delighted to say we gained exclusive access to the Doggfather while he was in the UK for Glastonbury. Would we lie to you?* What with hitting 50 and declaring that he has watched Coronation Street for the past 11 years, we're wondering if Snoop still has it and what our good pal** can tell us about gin? Here is the unabridged*** interview script when we ventured inside Snoop's trailer.
Gin Lane 'Ho': Yo Snoop! We like gin and we hear it's your tipple of choice - any favourite gins?
Snoop: I got me some Seagram's gin
GL: Racey! Would that have anything to do with Miss July?! Any particular drinking gripes?
Snoop: Everybody got they cups, but they ain't chipped in
GL: Round buying; it is an issue. We would never go to a party and expect to drink for free. Some people have no manners. Apart from Seagram's what do you and your friends drink?
Snoop: My homey Dr. Dre came through with a gang of Tanqueray.
GL: Would that have anything to do with Tanqueray rhyming with his own name?
At this point in the interview there is a stony silence so we change the subject.
GL: Favourite mixer Snoop?
Snoop: Tanqueray and chronic
Tonic surely?! Best not to argue at this stage...
Snoop: Get your ice, get your cups, straight up.
GL: So you're a Martini kind of a man then? Any other tips for our readers?
Snoop: I hit a corner and make sure my drink don't spill.
At this point the interview comes to a close; we are reliably informed Snoop does in fact practice road safety and wasn't driving and was most definitely wearing a seatbelt.
So that's all motherf**kers.
* Yes we most certainly would. Sorry.
** Never met him
