So there it was, a photo of Snoop Doggy Dog reading the Quran. I remember when he came to Birmingham, I had the opportunity of meeting him and the Dog Pound. We often think we know them because of what the media ALLOWS us to see. But we really don’t! And accounts like Napoleon and other artists who abondon music for Islam will tell you that most artists are not as shallow as you think, which means one of two things. They mislead knowingly or without knowledge of what they are part of.
Snoop has been a member of Nation of Islam for a while, and I know having had quite deep debates with him and the Dogg Pound that most of them are quite deep thinkers. But what I question is why would someone else’s spiritual journey get so much attention? Is not because we love him more than we know.
In a video ‘murder was the case’ many have suggested that Snoop engaged in selling his soul, but we do not see people sharing these kinds of posts. My point is, be careful who you invest your time and love in. Just because someone enters Islam should not govern or alter our conviction to practise the truth
Here are the lyrics from ‘Murder was the case’, you decide?
‘As I look up at the sky
My mind starts trippin, a tear drops my eye
My body temperature falls
I’m shakin and they breakin tryin to save the Dogg
Pumpin on my chest and I’m screamin
I stop breathin, damn I see deamons
Dear God, I wonder can ya save me
I can’t die Boo-Boo’s bout to have my baby
I think it’s too late for prayin, hold up
A voice spoke to me and it slowly started sayin
“Bring your lifestyle to me I’ll make it better”
How long will I live?
“Eternal life and forever”
And will I be, the G that I was?
“I’ll make your life better than you can imagine or even dreamed of
So relax your soul, let me take control
Close your eyes my son”
My eyes are closed’
