Snoop Dogg says he’s going to keep trying to unify the West Coast.
He’s hoping to take all the heavyweights on tour with him next year. "Ice
Cube had a great run this year," he began. "Too Short
was strong. E-40 put the hyphy movement down, Game
did big things and I coming right behind him doing gigantic things. We just all
need to figure out how to come together and keep it moving worldwide, as opposed

in the West that don’t like me, but they gotta respect my hand because I show
respect rather than disrespect."
Snoop says he has personally expressed his views to Game but has not talked
to Ras. "We gonna end all of that," Snoop said in true Doggfather
fashion. "Ras Kass, if you listening or seeing this, we need to figure
out a way to get a understanding. Game already got a understanding. He’s gonna
do what I say, because that’s my little homeboy and we on the same page. [Ras,]
I ain’t never talk to you about it, so I’m reaching out to you, little homie.
Let’s figure out a way to get this thing together and over with. You only cutting
