Snoop Dogg Thinks Photoshopped Image of Him Smoking With Kurt Cobain Is Real
During his illustrious career, Snoop Dogg has traveled the world, seen millions of faces and had thousands of smoke-outs, but his memory might be mistaken when it comes to a photo of the rapper smoking with late grunge icon Kurt Cobain.
On Thursday (July 4), Uncle Snoop posted a photo on Instagram that shows him smoking a blunt with the former Nirvana frontman smiling on a bed nearby. Snoop captioned the photo, "Young dogg with. Kurt 92."
Cobain, who is looked upon as a rock legend, died from an apparent suicide in 1994. The epic photo led to a lot of praise from Snoop's contemporaries. "This shit is incredible," Busta Rhymes commented.
"Wow we already know you’re legendary you just took it up a few levels!!" R&B singer Tyrese added.
Well, it turns out the photo is actually a Photoshop job doctored by Instagram user _vemix_ who is known for photoshopping cultural icons into photos together.
_vemix_ commented on the mixup on Instagram writing, "When you make Snoop think he smoked with Kurt in 92 #ijustwokeupforaquickpissandsawthisshitlol."
We'll give the "I Wanna Thank Me" rapper the benefit of the doubt and say he probably had a smoke session with Kurt in the early 1990s, but 897,364 blunts later his memory may be a little foggy on the details.
