I also love news that combines the two, like the fact that Rhianna will soon be performing a concert in Bucharest (!!!) and with Snoop Dogg’s Bogata mix-up that brought attention to the tiny Romanian village. Even though the mix-up was a boon of sorts, it makes sense that Snoop would want to capitalize on his mistake and give a shout out to the residents of Bogata by producing his first (and probably only) Romanian single.
Romania, of course, has a slew of hyper-talented rap artists dating back to the pioneers of B.U.G. Mafia and all the way up to today’s charts, where Okapi Sound keeps churning out hits by Grasu XXL and Spike among others (I have had Drumul spre succes and Lumea lui Paul on repeat since last summer) and other artists are taking clear inspiration from American rappers. So it only makes sense that the D-O-Double G himself would want to collaborate with some people from the country that he claimed to have visited recently, even if it was by mistake.
So far the details are few; HaHaHa Production is no stranger to working with American artists, so they will be teaming up with Doggystyle Records and Facem Records, who they recently collaborated with for Doc & Motzu’s HD album, to produce the track, which is set to be written in both Romanian and English and to heavily feature popular Romanian rappers.
Though there’s no word of Snoop actually stopping by Bogata yet, hopefully he’ll follow Rhianna’s lead and consider a concert in at least Bucharest, where I have little doubt he’ll easily sell out even the largest of venues.
Are you excited to hear a Romanian collaboration with Snoop Dogg? Which Romanian artists would you like to see him working with? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments!
Happy April Fool’s Day! Unfortunately, this article is satire, though as a fan of both Snoop Dogg and Romanian hip hop I would love if it were true. That said, please feel free to leave your comments about your dream Snoop/Romania collaboration… or pass this on to someone that you think might enjoy it!
