Snoop Dogg Says He Has No Will And Does Not Give A F*ck
BY: John “Hennry” Harris
The recent deaths of Prince and Afeni Shakur has brought wills to the forefront of American consciousness.
As astute of a businessman that Prince was, when he passed he left behind an estate valued at an estimated $300 million and no will. Princes estate includes unreleased songs, royalties, his likeness and other assets tied to the artist that now must be divvied up between his beneficiaries – which often leads to a lot of infighting between the family.
On the flip-side, Afeni Shakur, who coincidentally utilized the services of Howard King, set up an airtight trust that specifically designates monies to surviving heirs, charities, family and placed former Warner Bros. executitve Tom Whalley as the executor of Tupac’s coveted music catalog.
Afeni died with a divorce that was not finalized and her estranged husband, Gust Davis, will not be able to touch any of Tupac’s money or music.
In a recent interview, Snoop Dogg was asked if he had a will and if he made plans for his estate when he dies.
Snoop says he doesn’t care because he will be dead.
Not only does Snoop say he doesn’t have a plan in place, but reveals that he hopes to be reincarnated so that he can get a first hand look at the chaos created by not having a plan in place.
I really hope that Snoop Dogg is being playful with that answer to avoid talking about death. He has worked so hard and had to endure so much in the music industry, just to have all he has worked for, his legacy, possibly taken away for his family, which is an extension of himself.
I really hope that he is not that self-centered that he REALLY does not care about making sure his kids/family is not taken care of or given a chance to carry on with his work.
