Snoop Dogg is the new face of G-Star RAW
Snoop Dogg has unveiled a new partnership with G-Star, working with the Amsterdam-based denim brand for its latest “Hardcore Denim” campaign. The campaign focuses on Snoop’s song “Say It Witcha Booty,” which arrived as part of his recent From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites album. The message of the customized song is shared with G-Star, as the label encourages people to find their perfect denim fit.
While Snoop may be the perfect fit for G-Star’s campaign, it’s also important to him that every brand he works with and project he collaborates on is a good fit on his side. “We take a hard look at everything that comes my way, there’s a method to the madness,” he continues. “Every deal has to make sense on both sides. No secrets, we put it all out there. Real sh*t. It’s a pleasure to work with a global brand like G-Star. I know y’all will love what we got planned.”
Snoop’s project with G-Star is the latest evolution of an illustrious career that has already spanned 18 studio albums — as well as countless collaborations, mixtapes, singles and tours — and experimentation with other genres. Throughout all of this, whether it’s his studio work or brand collaborations, creativity has been key for the hip-hop legend.
Although the campaign centers around a new version of “Say It Witcha Booty,” it’s the campaign video that brings G-Star and Snoop’s “perfect fit” message to life. “The video goes crazy,” Snoop says. “We put a lot of time into it to make it come to life like that. It brings everything together so well. Lots of creative minds were put to use on this project, and I love it.”
Whether it’s on the song or the accompanying video, Snoop’s sense of humour runs throughout the campaign the same way it has throughout his career. “I just do me,” he explains of the campaign’s tongue-in-cheek tone. “In this crazy ass world, we need to take a step back sometimes and appreciate what we got. Family, health and life. Got to smile a little more.”
