Snoop Dogg loves to collaborate with the next generation, and he says he wants to work with CHIKA after the pair connected during a recent Instagram Live session.
Snoop joined CHIKA on a recent Live she was streaming, and said he was “here to give you your flowers. I’m here to tell you I fuck with your music. I love your shit.
“I play it, I enjoy it. I wanted to tell you that. I didn’t want to, like, let you hear about it. I want you [to] hear it from me, from the Dogg’s mouth.”
Snoop then laid down a challenge, asking CHIKA to write him a song. He says, “As a writer, me myself, when I’m given a task of writing for someone, I like to study what they’ve written and what they’ve done and what they haven’t done. I try to give them a piece of themselves that they’ve never tapped into ’cause they can’t really see themselves as good as I can see them.”
She had the perfect song in mind, saying, “I’m writing you a country song. It’s gonna be a Black country song. Southern music, Southern rap especially – that shift different. It’s a different vibe. It’s a completely different vibe. I’m down for the challenge … This is gonna be some hip-hop country shit.”
Snoop thought that was a perfect choice, saying, “We gonna mesh. We gonna make this shit work.” We can't wait to hear this track, and how the pair will sound together. Turns out you can teach an old Dogg new tricks after all.
It's been a busy period for CHIKA, as she's just dropped her latest single, U Should. It follows her debut EP Industry Games from earlier this year, and sees her shooting her shot (much like Snoop did).
Check out the track below. No wonder Snoop is a fan - CHIKA's flow on this track is out of this world.
