You learn something about a person everyday, now never in a million years would I have thought that Snoop would be a painter along with his many other talents.
In a collaboration with A Swedish sock company called Happy Socks, Snoop released a video called The Art Of Inspiration. In the video he gives us a taste of his artistic talent the best way Snoop knows how along with a preview of some of the socks from the company. He talks about the fact that painting allows him to really express his emotion, and kind of release some of the struggles he has faced in his own life.
I think painting for me gives me emotion like no other. I can cry while I’m painting. I can laugh while I’m painting. I can be serious while I’m painting. I don’t have no parameters. When I’m acting, there’s certain things I can’t do. When I’m rapping, there’s certain things I can’t do. There are certain things I won’t do…But with the painting, there’s no limit.
I like to say that everyone could use a little therapy at times or even an outlet for release of stress. Some people do Yoga but considering weed is his muse, I just assumed that a good blunt would do it for him.
Apparently grass isnt enough or maybe he is immune to it so he needs a canvas a paint brush and a whole lot of colors. Alot of his work are sold at private events, you wont find any of it online or in a store or anything. Wonder why?
The socks he designed for Happy Socks are found on their website though, which at least gives us a glimpse of how creative Snoop can actually get.
Well you can always watch this video too:
