Snoop Dogg Backs Writers’ Strike, Calls Streaming “F*cked Up”

Snoop Dogg Backs Writers’ Strike, Calls Streaming “F*cked Up”: Snoop Dogg has never held back when sharing his thoughts on streaming services. The first action he took after purchasing Death Row Records last year was to remove some of the biggest albums from streaming services. He acknowledged that he did it for the benefit of the musicians even though he was the label’s owner.

“First thing I did was snatch all the music off those platforms… because those platforms don’t pay,“ Snoop said. “And those platforms get millions of millions of streams, and nobody gets paid other than the record labels.”

With regard to the WGA strike that is currently taking place in Hollywood, Snoop is now posing the same question.

The Writers Guild of America, or WGA, is a union. The majority of writers for movies and television shows reside there. They claim that major studios have dramatically reduced writer pay by using the move to streaming as an excuse. So, in order to demand fair pay, the union is on strike. Snoop believes that musicians may learn from the WGA’s example.

“[Artists] need to figure it out the same way the writers are figuring it out. The writers are striking because [of] streaming; they can’t get paid. Because when it’s on the platform, it’s not like in the box office,” Snoop said. “That’s the main gripe with a lot of us artists is that we do major numbers. But it don’t add up to the money. Like, where the f*ck is the money?”
