Snoop Dogg Fuming At 'Wet' Name Change
April 13th, 2011 2:27pm EDT
Snoop Dogg has been told to change the title of his bachelor party anthem dedicated to royal fan Prince William in order to get the racy tune played on U.S. radio stations.
The Gin and Juice hit-maker came up with Wet in honor of the British royal's upcoming nuptials to Kate Middleton, insisting he hoped the tune would help the Prince celebrate his final days as a single man.
He faced some criticism from radio chiefs who refused to play the song on air unless he renamed the track to make it more family-friendly, but the backlash has stunned Snoop - because another single he created with Dr. Dre is all about their love of marijuana.
He tells Vibe magazine, "I did a song called Wet, and these motherf**kers at radio made me change the title to Sweat. I didn't change one line on Kush. I hear that motherf**ker on the radio every day, and we're talking about straight smoking dope. I can't be sexy, but I can be drug oriented."
