He explained how it gave people “a chance to see two dogs that naturally loved each other, celebrate each other in the name of hip hop."
Snoop added, "We had God in the building with us that night. That makes me feel good about DMX’s transition to know that he’s off to a better place and he’s finally got his angel wings.”
