I couldn’t get a story out of my head last weekend while I sat across from Snoop Dogg—blunt in his hand, Game One of Toronto vs. Orlando playing in the background—in a van outside The Sands hotel in Indian Wells, California. Snoop had just DJed a pool party for Levi’s, and he was about to roll out. But before that, I had to know something.

See, last month on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Matthew McConaughey regaled the audience with a story about Snoop swapping his own Snoop weed for the prop weed they were supposed to be smoking while shooting a take for The Beach Bum. According to Snoop, McConaughey proceeded to rap “for 13 hours straight.” This brought me so much joy. I needed to confirm it. Did the other famously stoner-ish guy in Harmony Korine’s latest movie really rap his ass off while high as a kite.
“That motherfucker didn’t stop,” Snoop said. And apparently, he’s actually pretty good. “Matthew McConaughey on weed is the greatest rapper in the world. That motherfucker can rap his ass off. He had bars, though. He had real bars, he had flow, he wasn’t using the same style, he wasn’t using the same cadence—he was actually mixing that shit up.”
But even though McConaughey was apparently having the time of his life, it posed a bit of a problem for Snoop. ” It was fucking me up, because we were supposed to be doing lines,” he said. “So imagine: This is the first day on the set. I’m prepared to do my lines. But he’s fucking me up because he ain’t doing none of the lines. All he’s doing is rapping.”
