Snoop continued, “It’s like, ‘Mike, I’ve loved you since North Carolina, I’m a big fan of yours, I love what you do, you one of the greatest to ever do it. Give me a couple of secrets on how you did this. Can I get a picture with you? You wanna smoke a blunt? Hey man, it’s been real.’”

Elsewhere in the interview, Snoop recalled what happened when he and Suge Knight visited the late-great Tupac Shakur in the hospital after he was shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996.

“When I walked in, I could just feel like he wasn’t even there and I fainted,” he revealed, Rap-Up reports

“Then his mother got me up and walked me in the bathroom and had a conversation with me about being strong. She was like, ‘My baby ain’t never seen you weak. I don’t want you to be weak in front of him. You go in the bathroom and fix yourself up and you go back in there and you talk to him and you tell him how you feel. My baby loves you.’”

He continued, “She knew there was a little tension, but she knew how much we loved each other. So she gave us a moment for me to say some things to him as far as how much I love him. But I knew that that was gonna be my last time speaking with him.”

Pac died days later on Sept. 7, 1996, at age 25.
