Despite being one of hip-hop’s biggest earners in history, Snoop Dogg found himself a bit vexed about having to sign up for a TIDAL account in order to hear Hov’s new 4:44 album. So like many he pirated it, and he’s come clean about it too. In a new video, the Doggfather commended JAY for dropping another classic album while also encouraging younger and older artists to start supporting each other more. Snoop also admits he wasn’t aware Hov had a streaming service called TIDAL.

“Top of the morning. I want to shoot a shout out to JAY-Z just dropped another muthafuckin’ hot album, 4:44, fo’ fo’ fo’. But you know what? I don’t got TIDAL, so a nigga had to bootleg it to me. I’m on iTunes and shit cause, I don’t understand that. Y’all gotta explain that to me. I went to iTunes looking for his album and I couldn’t find it. But my homie sent it to me, you understand me. But um, shout out to JAY-Z, my nigga. He did it again. See, I ain’t no hater, I love the game for what it’s worth—the young niggas and the old niggas. Practice that. Practice showing love. Practice supporting other muthafuckas other than yourself. Yeah, do that.”
