Snoop Dogg told Insider that one of the most memorable meals he's ever cooked was for DMX.
Snoop cooked for DMX and Swizz Beatz for three days in a row while they were recording an album.
"I put together some short ribs, some rice, some gravy, some corn, and corn bread," Snoop recalled.
But Snoop Dogg told Insider that the most memorable meal he's ever cooked was for DMX.
Snoop Dogg, who recorded a number of tracks with the late rapper, said he cooked for DMX after they faced off in a "Verzuz" battle in July 2020. The Instagram Live broadcast, which invited two musicians to show off their discographies on each episode, was launched by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that March.
"I had an amazing time cooking for the late, great DMX," Snoop Dogg told Insider. "After we did our 'Verzuz' battle at my studio, he ended up staying here and continuing to work on his album."
While DMX was recording, Snoop said he whipped up a huge feast for him and Swizz Beatz.
"I put together some short ribs, some rice, some gravy, some corn, and corn bread," the rapper recalled. "And DMX and Swizz Beatz damn near ate the tray, they couldn't believe how good it was."
But that wasn't the end of Snoop Dogg's cooking marathon.
"I had to cook for them for like three days in a row, and I was honored to do it and I was happy to do it," Snoop Dogg added. "It made me feel good to know I was giving them nourishment and food to go and create a record. That was one of my highlights, to be able to cook for them and for them to enjoy it."
"And that leads me to believe that's why God chose this angel to come back home with him," Snoop Dogg said. "He did what he was supposed to do. He influenced, he inspired, and he represented. So, DMX, his soul will live on and his music will live on as well."
As for his dream celebrity dinner guest, Snoop Dogg told Insider that he hopes to whip something up for Sade.
"I would love to cook for Sade while we're in a studio working on a record," he said. "Some cuisine shit, like filet mignon with Lobster Thermidor."
Snoop Dogg has some skills when it comes to lobster. Martha Stewart previously told Insider that Lobster Newburg is the best dish he's ever made for her.
"He won't touch a lobster, but he will cook Lobster Newburg," she said. "I thought that was really funny."
"She told me that one of the homegirls gave her some sort of recipe that when she got out she used, and it was effective and it was dope," the rapper said. "That shit was amazing. It was good, it was soft, it was crispy."
