    Because He's Snoop Dogg
    In a game where credibility is everything, most MCs live in fear of slipping up and doing something uncool that will ruin their image. Snoop Dogg has no such hang-ups, as the Doggfather has spent the past two decades doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants without the slightest worry of losing cool points. Late last month, Snoop announced a new alter ego, Rastafarian-inspired Snoop Lion, as well as plans to release a reggae album with Major Lazer’s Diplo. During Drake's third annual OVO fest over the weekend, Snoop Lion even performed his first single "La La La" to an enthralled audience. That may sound like a joke to some, but <em>XXL</em> staff knows that The Dogg will have the last laugh in the end. The fact is, Snoop has demanded respect from the beginning and his long-term relevance in popular culture proves that he will be cool until the day he dies. Join <em>XXL</em> in counting down 10 moments that only Snoop Dogg could get away. —<em>Calvin Stovall</em> (<a href="http://twitter.com/calvinstovall/">@CalvinStovall</a>)

    <strong>What</strong>: Nardwuar’s First Interview<br /><strong>When</strong>: 2000<br /><strong>Why?</strong> Believe it or not, it was big Snoop Dogg that gave the goofy Canadian journalist his big break in hip-hop. In 2000, Nardwuar patented his quirky interview style by giving Snoop a rare Red Foxx doll as a gift and hasn't stopped since.<br />
