In a new interview with the art of dialogue Gangsta rap pioneers Spice-1 revealed that Snoop Dogg was molested by Bloods on the set of Antoine Fuqua’s 2001 crime thriller training day, with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.
training day was known for showing a different side of LA and chose to film in locations such as East LA, Compton, Watts and South Central, many of which were home to the Bloods. Snoop’s presence was apparently unwelcome because he was a Crip, leading to Bloods harassing him on set. Spice-1 apparently heard Snoop being molested and came to the set to put an end to it.
“I’m out in LA OG Crip homie hit me and he said, ‘Spice, they’re at Snoop’s trailer. There’s some blood niggas over there throwing bottles at the Snoop trailer,’” Spice recalled. “He didn’t say Blood niggas because he won’t say that, but he told me that.
“I say, ‘Oh!’ In so many words he said, ‘Go over there and try to calm them down n-ggas. They’re going to listen to you.” And I’m like, ‘Man, these n-ggas aren’t going to listen to me. These n-ggas don’t know me.’ But since the OG-N-Gga said go over there and holla to them.
Spice added that by the time he got there, the Bloods stopped throwing bottles at Snoop’s trailer. He asked if they had weed and told them the police were coming. Spice then said that he and the Bloods went around the corner to smoke and the cops walked by but left them alone.
“So I’m going there. I look at them and they look at me and they’re like, ‘Damn blood! That looks like Spice-1, Blood! I’m like, ‘It’s me, nigga! you have no weed? What’s happening?’
“I was like, ‘Man, they said you guys were going to throw all the bottles at Snoop’s trailer and shit. The muthafuckas want to call the police. We gotta get the hell out of here ’cause they might come.’ And they said, ‘Okay, cool. Let’s get the fuck out of here.’ Niggas don’t try to see that [police] anyway.”
He added: “So we jumped, went around the corner and started smoking some weed and waited for the po-pos to break through. They drove through and left. I dabbed the niggas and hopped out and went to Snoop’s trailer and started shredding it with him for a minute, smoke some weed or whatever. I don’t think he knew what I was there for.”
