The G-Funk legend shared the incredible anecdote during his latest appearance on Drink Champs, where he explained how Snoop had originally planned to go to Las Vegas with ‘Pac and Suge Knight to watch the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight on September 7, 1996.

In a fortuitous twist of fate, Tha Doggfather changed his mind at the last minute and took Warren G up on his offer to watch the WBA heavyweight contest at his house in Los Angeles instead.

“The cold shit about it is, I had called Snoop,” Warren G said. “At that time, I was single … I had a house to myself. I was like, ‘Shit, I’m a bachelor. What’s up, Snoop? Come over! I’m here watching the fight, I’ma invite a gang of people over, we gonna barbecue.’

“He was like, ‘Fuck that shit, I’m going to Vegas with 2Pac and them for the fight.’ So I was like, ‘Damn, n-gga! You don’t never kick it with me, shit.’”

He continued: “So a couple of hours went by, I’m in the house, getting everything ready. I heard a horn honking in front of my house. I looked out the house and Snoop was outside in a white muthafuckin’ Rolls-Royce with the peanut butter inside with the top down.

“He pulled up, he surprised me. He came and hung with me, he let me drive that muthafucka and we just having a good time, barbecuing, having fun. And the fight was coming on. He came to fuck with me for the fight instead of going to Vegas.”

The Long Beach native said that while they were hanging out at his home, Snoop was notified that 2Pac had been shot — at which point he made his way to Vegas to visit his Death Row Records labelmate in hospital.

“So we watching the fight, some females around. Everybody chilling and having a good time. [Snoop] had the Nextel back then. I don’t know what kind of Nextel he had, but whatever it was, it was hitting him all the way from what was going on in Vegas,” Warren G remembered.

“We could hear the shit, and then he started getting calls and they was telling him that 2Pac got shot. So I kicked everybody out and [Snoop] took off — that’s when he went to Vegas to go see what was going on and go to the hospital.

“If I wouldn’t have talked to him and got him to come over to my house, he probably would’ve been right there in the car with them and got shot as well.”
