If you haven’t heard, Pharrell has signed Snoop Dogg to his i am OTHER record label, for the release of Snoop Dogg’s next album. The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ collaborators have been friends for many years and this deal marks a major step in their work together.

While on the surface, a beef between Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea seems pretty humorous, as you have an old school rapper (whose years are well behind him) and a white female rapper from Australia airing out their hate for another, Snoop Dogg took things to a new level.
