In the latest documentary titled “Don’t Make Me Over” about the iconic singer Dionne Warwick who is also now hailed as “Queen Of Twitter” a hilarious story from the 90s (also known as the golden or gangster era of hip-hop) has been discussed Dionne confronting Deathrow Records members Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight and more.
“These kids are expressing themselves, which they’re entitled to do. However, there’s a way to do it,”
Warwick who was the first solo black female to win Grammy recalls she hosted a meeting with Snoop, Suge, and several other prominent Rappers back then after being done with misogynistic Rap songs.
“We were kind of like scared and shook up” said Snoop about their first reaction to the invite “We are powerful right now, but she’s been powerful forever. Thirty-some years in the game, in the big home with a lot of money and success.”
After greeting the Rappers she asked them to call “b—“ to her face, a term frequently used in Rap songs forever. Dionne further told all of them “You guys are all going to grow up. You’re going to have families. You’re going to have children. You’re going to have little girls and one day that little girl is going to look at you and say, ‘Daddy, did you really say that? Is that really you?’ What are you going to say?”.
“She was checking me at a time when I thought we couldn’t be checked” Snoop further explained. “We were the most gangsta as you could be but that day at Dionne Warwick’s house, I believe we got out-gangstered that day.”
