Pulpit & Pen told you in 2017 that ‘Snoop Dogg’ would be producing a Gospel album, and then reported to you last year that Mr. Dogg’s album was topping the ‘Christian and Gospel’ section on iTunes. Now, the pot-smoking, rhyme-slinging rapper has won the BET Gospel Music Award.
Fo real, yo.
On Sunday, Snoop Dogg – whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr – won an award that previously had been bestowed upon Kirk Franklin and Lecrae. It was his first gospel album.
The award was for the Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirartional Award and was issued, in particular, for his song, “Blessing Me Again,” which you can listen to below.
Franklin Graham asked Snoop Dogg why he didn’t dabble in Christian music before and he responded, “My calling was to go minister to the streets first and then get the people and then tell them about God’s water once I got their attention.”
By “minister in the streets” we presume Dogg was referencing his long musical career focusing on pimps, hoes, marijuana, and crime.
Dogg claims he made the album for his deceased grandmother.
