It doesn’t matter how old, accomplished or even hard you are, when you’ve upset the elders, nothing is more upsetting and downright frightening. That’s what Snoop Dogg shared he experience about an encounter he had with Dionne Warwick in the 90s. She was so upset about the misognystic lyrics Snoop and a number of other rappers were using so she set up a meeting with them all to talk about it. Snoop said “We were kind of, like, scared and shook up.” They were so shook up that Snoop, Tupac and Suge Knight all showed up 10 minutes early for fear of pissing her off more by being late.

“We’re powerful right now, but she’s been powerful forever,” Snoop stated. “Thirty-some years in the game, in the big home with a lot of money and success.” Warwick made her issues with the music clear by saying, “These kids are expressing themselves, which they’re entitled to do. However, there’s a way to do it.” She went on to say, “You guys are all going to grow up. You’re going have families. You’re going to have children. You’re going to have little girls, and one day that little girl is going to look at you and say, ‘Daddy, did you really say that? Is that really you?’ What are you going to say?’

Snoop says he appreciated the interaction saying, “She was checking me at a time when I thought we couldn’t be checked. We were the most gangsta as you could be, but that day at Dionne Warwick’s house, I believe we got out-gangstered that day.”

This whole interaction is a part of a new CNN documentary titled Dionne Warwick: Don’t Make Me Over which aired Jan 1st. And one thing this discourse between her and rap’s heavyweights way back when shows is that she’s always been this way. There are people who feel her Twitter couldn’t possibly be managed by her because she checks people on the regular. If you think that then you don’t know Dionne Warwick. She can now do her checking without setting up physical meetings.
