CONAN: LAST TIME YOU WERE HERE, IT WAS TO DO REGGAE AND YOU WERE SNOOP LION.
YOU'VE TRANSFORMED AND YOU ARE SNOOPZILLA TO PROMOTE 7 DAYS OF FUNK.

SNOOP: YEAH.
CONAN: LOOK AT THAT!
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME -- I DON'T REMEMBER WHEN I SAW SOMEONE COME OUT WITH A CASSETTE.
THAT'S FANTASTIC.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO COME OUT WITH A CASSETTE?
SNOOP: IT'S THE EMOTION OF THE RECORD.
WHEN WE MADE THE RECORD, IT FELT LIKE WE WERE IN THE ERA WHERE CASSETTES WERE BEING MADE.
WE MADE AN ALBUM THAT REPRESENTED FUNK THAT WAS A TIME PERIOD RECORD, IT DIDN'T HAVE A TIME BASE BUT IT REPRESENTED THAT PERIOD SO WE WANTED TO GIVE THE KIDS SOMETHING WHAT WE GREW UP ON.
A LOT OF KIDS DON'T KNOW WHAT A CASSETTE TAPE IS SO WE WANTED TO GIVE THEM HISTORY ON MUSIC AND HOW TO LISTEN TO THE MUSIC.
CONAN: THEY'LL HAVE TO FIND SOMETHING TO PLAY IT BUT I KNOW WHO WILL COME OUT WITH SUCH A DEVICE VERY SOON.
MAN, YOU'RE GOOD.
SNOOP: HEY, WAIT, WAIT.
WHAT I WANT TO SAY, WHAT I REALLY LIKE IS THE WAY YOU ROCKING THAT JERRY LEE LEWIS.
CONAN: THIS IS STUCK WITH ME, WE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON.

YOUR HAIR IS CHANGED A LITTLE BUT IT'S STILL THERE AND -- WHAT I'M AMAZED -- I WANT TO ASK YOU THIS -- DO YOU EVER FIND YOURSELF DOING A CONCERT NOW, IT'S 20 YEARS LATER AND THEY WANT TO HEAR "GIN AND JUICE" AND YOU THINK, I DON'T WANT TO SING THAT AGAIN OR IS IT STILL A JOYOUS OCCASION TO SING THAT SONG?
SNOOP: FIRST RECORDS I PUT OUT BRING ME MORE JOY THAN THE NEWER RECORDS BECAUSE THEY STAND TEST OF TIME AND THEY'RE MOMENTS IN PEOPLE'S LIVES AS WELL AS MINE SO WHEN I DO AN OLD RECORD, IT MAKE ME FEEL GOOD IN A REAL WAY.
CONAN: YOU HAVE A NEW COMPANY, DOG FOR DOG AND THIS IS ACTUALLY DOING REAL GOOD.
TELL US WHAT DOG FOR DOG IS.
SNOOP: WHEN YOU BUY A BAG OF DOG FOOD, WE DONATE ANOTHER BAGTO A SHELTER TO SAVE LIVES FOR DOGS BECAUSE A LOT OF DOGS ARE BEING KILLED BECAUSE IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOOD.
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SPACE BUT IT'S ABOUT THE FOOD SO WE TRIED TO FIND A WAY TO KEEP THE DOGS ALIVE UNTIL THEY GET A HOME SO WHEN YOU BUY ONE BAG OF DOG FOOD, WE DONATE TO A LOCAL SHELTER OR YOU GIVE US A SNORLT DONATE TO.
CONAN: DOG FOR DOG.
IS IT GOOD DOG FOOD?
SNOOP: THE FOOD IS REAL GOOD.
I HAVEN'T TASTED IT BUT I KNOW -- FOR REAL, THOUGH.
