Snoop Dogg predicts the Lakers will three-peat in 'Purp & Yellow'

December 6, 2010 | 10:13 pm


Laker fans wondering which song to add to their iPod playlist need to look no further than "Purp & Yellow" featuring The Game, Snoop Dogg and YG (kudos to Diandra for passing this along on the previous thread).

I can't link to the song because it has profanity, but like Phil Jackson does with his players, I'll let you figure out how to find it on your own. I can, however, provide lyrics to Snoop Dogg's verse about the Lakers:

Swish! 24, thats black mamba

Snoop Dogg, he’s a dope rhymer

collaborate, with the golden state

in a yellow six deuce with the purple plates

I dip and dodge, I hit 3 and roll

fish and chips, bounce pass down to Pau Gasol

we dont give a damn bout the big 3

LA Lake show we bout to 3 peat

and you can bet, thats on the set

Ron Artest about to get wet

Im on the flo’ and thats a fact

sittin’ next to uncle Jack....

I can't finish the lyric because it involves one of Snoop Dogg's favorite past times. Oh well.  Assuming Snoop's prediction rings true, something tells me he and Ron Artest need to record a Lakers' championship song together. After all, Artest received some help from Dr. Dre on his single, Champion. Better yet, Snoop Dogg and Artest each could perform a battle rap with Bow Wow, who predicted this summer that the Miami Heat would beat the Lakers on Christmas Day.
