West Coast rap veteran Snoop Dogg continues to prove why his voice is golden with the latest edition of "Planet Snoop: Snake Charmer" where he provides some hilarious commentary to an actual snake charmer. Watch now!
[SOHH highlights a hot record every week and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the smash in Singled Out. After C-Sharp dissected his "What It Do" anthem, DoggyStyle Records' Heebz Street breaks down how his "Wasted Time" single landed on Snoop Dogg's latest mixtape.]
The DoggyStyle compilation project was something I didn't even know was going to happen. I actually found out about that and was like, "Wow, that's pretty dope. Oh sh*t. This is pretty crazy."
I sent Snoop [Dogg] a couple of songs and my "Wasted Time" was one of his favorites and felt it was the most marketable. Since he is the face of DoggyStyle, that's what he wanted to put out and what he put on the project.
That song right there is pretty dope.
I remember seeing an article on the compilation on Rolling Stone and that was crazy. Sometimes I can't even believe it's my life. When you put a ton of hard work into your passion, you're waking up everyday working and putting your heart into it, then to see it come into fruition?
[After landing a deal with Snoop Dogg's Doggy Style Records, New Jersey hip-hop newcomer Heebz Street tells SOHH about his come-up and seeing fellow Garden State rappers like Fetty Wap flourish.]
I don't know how people across the country feel about New Jersey, I think a lot of people are down on us. But we're killing it.
There's a lot of underground artists doing things right now. You have Naughty By Nature from New Jersey and the cool thing about them is that Treach actually handed me the microphone at one of my performances in Montclair, New Jersey.
Naughty By Nature is dope. That was an unreal experience for me. Being a white boy, rocking crowds? That was pretty cool.
I think Jersey is killing it. Fetty Wap is dope. He's very different. He's definitely new school. You have a lot of dope underground artists that aren't really getting any recognition or spotlight but they're killing it out here.
There's a lot of artists who stay true to the culture and then a lot that are new and bring something new. Joe Budden is pretty cool.
I think artists like Fetty Wap is really expanding the door and having people come look at us a bit more.
I like Fetty Wap because I got to watch him come up. I'm really close friends with his cameraman. Shout-out to him. I still remember coming up and him telling me Fetty was going to blow.
I got to watch him come up out of Paterson, New Jersey.
[After landing a deal with Snoop Dogg's Doggy Style Records, New Jersey hip-hop newcomer Heebz Street tells SOHH what he brings to the West Coast-heavy roster.]
Snoop Dogg has a lot of West Coast sound on Doggystyle and I feel like I bring something different being from New Jersey.
I feel like I'm different.
I bring versatility to the brand and he has his daughter and a bunch of California artists. You can tell they're Cali because they have that sound. I feel like I bring that East Coast sound and it's cool.
I'm with Doggy Style Records but it's not like an Eminem-Dr. Dre type of thing. I still feel like it's pretty big. If I want to release a record or if I want to release a couple records, I can do it directly under Snoop's Doggy Style Records.
It's been a lot of business so far. Snoop is a busy man and he's practically in a different city everyday. I plan on going and seeing him, I have a cousin out in California too who is a producer so I'm looking to link up with him and at the same time go link with Snoop.
Working Wednesday. We're putting in that work today SOHH why not get things going with Drake having to deal with his toughest foe to date?

Do you think Snoop Dogg went too far right here? Do you agree? Think the singer will respond? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
