Back in November, Uncle Snoop appeared on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, where he gave Fif his flowers. “50 is gon’ be a legend in rap forever,” he said. “His records, his music, his movie—his shit he did just changed the whole game of New York, and just run New York for a minute and put that New York spirit back in the game. He did that. He figured that shit out, he got that shit on lock. I’m a student right now and I’m trying to learn from him. It’s true, you can teach an old dog a new trick, that’s if he’s willing to listen.”
It seems 50 might have only heard the clip recently, as he took to Instagram on Monday to share Snoop’s interview, writing, “@snoopdogg that shit you just said means way more then a award to me.”
Snoop performed at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Mary J. Blige back in February, where Fif made an upside-down surprise appearance and played the Dre-produced hit “In Da Club.” Snoop and 50 Cent are also both executive producers on 50’s forthcoming Starz series A Moment in Time: Murder Was the Case, which centers on Snoop’s 1993 first-degree murder case.
