By Rolling Out – Snoop Dogg turned his hand to boxing commentary on Saturday night, Nov. 28, 2020.
During the pay-per-view event, he joked: “This s— like two of my uncles fighting at the barbecue.
Snoop openly supported Jones Jr. during the fight, rather than seeking to be impartial in his role as a commentator.
But the rap star’s efforts were still widely praised on social media, with basketball legend LeBron James hailing Snoop on Twitter.
He said on the micro-blogging platform: “My Unk @SnoopDogg is simply the greatest at whatever he does man!! Swiss Army Knife++++++”
Meanwhile, Snoop previously insisted that in spite of his success, he’s determined to remain humble.
The rapper — who released his debut album, Doggystyle, in 1993 — shared: “I never forget where I came from.
“I remember eating a bowl of Wheaties and sharing hot dogs with my brothers, taking baths with my cousin. Not really having much, wearing hand-me-down clothes from my cousin. Waiting to get his clothes that he couldn’t fit no more.
“You know those things inspired me to do what I’m doing now. And once I made it, I always had that reflection in my mind to go back. And I always wanted to help those who couldn’t help themselves because I was in a position to help.”
