Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams are trying to drop it and make it hotter. The duo recently hooked up for a remix of “Drop It Like It’s Hot” with none other than Mr. President himself, Jay-Z.
It’s a brand new bounce beat with Pharrell — who calls himself “Chef Boy R.P.” — batting leadoff, Snoop cleanup and S. Carter sandwiched in between. If you caught any of his Jay-Z and Friends tour dates or his recent appearance on “106 & Park,” you may recognize the first part of Hov’s rhyme where he teases hatas and cops, rapping, “Thank God for hip-hop or I’d be in the bizz-ox/ Jail or dead, whichever way you rizz-ock/ But now I’m so fresh you can smell me through a Ziploc/ Mr. S Dizz-ot, it’s not gonna stizz-op.”
The last few lines of Jay’s raps, however, seem to take a jab at R. Kelly. Although Jay doesn’t mention the Pied Piper by name, he does talk about a man who had to leave a stage and is now taking him to court (see “R. Kelly Sues Jay-Z For $75 Million, Claims Sabotage” ).
“It’s Jizz-ay, homey, you got pizz-ayed/ Take it like a man, the flow ran you off the stizz-age/ Wasting your time trying to sue S Dot/ Tell your lawyer to take the civil case and drop it like it’s hot.”
The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” remix has leaked to the Net and mixtapes, but a representative for Snoop would not comment on the possibility of the song being officially released. The retired Jay-Z, on the other hand, has a bunch of new records coming out soon. In May, Hov is putting out the DVD of his recent “Fade to Black” movie (see “Jay-Z: Fade To The Black Sessions” ). Included will be four new songs.
