There was a time not too long ago when Snoop Dogg was persona non grata in England because of a little airport scuffle he had back in 2007. Well, the ban has since been lifted, and now the Doggfather could be all the way back in on the British isles thanks to a track he’s recorded in honor of Prince William’s upcoming bachelor party.
England’s Daily Mirror reports that William’s younger brother, Prince Harry, is trying to lock down Snoop and UK rapper Tinie Tempah to perform at the upcoming stag party for Will, who announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton last week.
Snoop didn’t waste any time in stepping up to the plate, dropping the song “Wet” on Tuesday as his gift to William. The racy tune, which the rapper says is a sequel of sorts to his funktastic 2008 hit “Sexual Eruption,” was produced by the Cataracs, best known for their work on the Far East Movement smash “Like a G6.”
“When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something,” Snoop wrote in a statement announcing his gift to the Prince. “‘Wet’ is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.” To be fair, the song was already slated to be featured on Snoop’s upcoming album, Doggumentary Music album, but it’s a nice gesture anyway.
While it’s unlikely that the royal family will embrace the slinky, bass-thumping ode to oral sex, the track is classic Snoop seduction. “Can you be my doctor?/ Can you fix me up?/ Can you wipe me down?/ So I can lick you up,” Snoop raps in an echo-laden, psychedelic drawl in one of the only PG-13 lyrics on a decidedly R-rated track. The song can be heard now at Snoop’s official website.
So is “Wet” fit for a (future) king? Tell us what you think of the tune in the comments.
