“I’ve always felt like painting was something I wanted to do, but I just never had time to do it,” Snoop opens up at the beginning. Like it has before with other artists, Happy Socks gave the Dogg Father free agency over the final design of his socks, censoring nothing. This allowed him to highlight the three sides of himself unimpeded: Snoop, the painter; Snoop, the Rastafarian; and Snoop of the “Gin and Juice” variety.
To promote his three upcoming collaborations with Happy Socks, Snoop Dogg and Cashmere Agency have released a short film of the rapper expressing himself artistically in a white room filled with canvases via Dazed Digital.
The limited edition socks, seen below, will be sold individually and as a boxed set on Happy Socks’ webshop when they drop this November. To check them out in action and hear Snoop Dogg wax poetic about art, click here to watch the full version of the film.
