QUIT B*TCHING AND LEAVE THE LABEL: Snoop Dogg goes off script in interview with former Apple Music directr, saying the music industry ‘isn’t working’ anymore because of streaming
In an event held at the Milken Institute Global Conference earlier this month the Gin and Juice rapper said he was going “off script” and launched into a rant—which has since gone viral—about streaming platforms.
The outburst came following a question from Larry Jackson, formerly the creative director for Apple Music, who spoke about an “exciting time” for the hip hop genre courtesy of its popularity on streaming platforms.
“Streaming got to get their s*** together,” Snoop—real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.—batted back, highlighting that massive streaming figures aren’t translating into big payouts for artists. – Snoop Dogg
