Weigh In: Snoop Dogg Sets The Web Ablaze With French Manicure / Are People Overreacting?

Published: Friday 28th Feb 2014 by Rashad


The net has been roaring for the last day or so with mixed review of Snoop Lion’s Instagram-unveiling of freshly French manicured nails.

Indeed, the legendary rapper (formerly known as Snoop Dogg) was dealt a fiery hand of comments after sharing pics of his latest fashion accessory to fans.  But, we’ll argue that the response – which was surprisingly mixed – begs a bigger debate:  what is the big deal?

Some fans even cite some of Snoop’s most notorious fashion choices over his tenured career as evidence that he has always gone against the “hypermasculine” grain of hip hop.  And, the fact that the gangsta rap veteran – who was clearly aware of the potential backlash the picture would bring – still so boldly upload it says a lot.

But, what does it truly say?  You tell us:


Are people overreacting?

Of course, Snoop isn’t the only one.  Acts like Pharrell, Kanye West, and newcomers A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, and Lil’ B have also been more adventurous with their fashion choices.  Adorned in everything from kilt to full out dresses, some of these rappers (and more) have also accessorized their daring ensembles with the likes of purses, colored nails, and even make-up.

    His fingers remind me of Ciara’s voice, thin and scrawny.

  7. OVODasher February 28, 2014

    We should have known he was different when started rocking those Shirley Temple curls.

  8. Ajanni February 28, 2014

    Are people overreacting? That manicure ain’t got nothing on them bags under his eyes and his overall elderly appearance. Yet, weed is da bomb! He looks like a senior citizen. No wonder the Miley’s and Rihanna’s of the world look like they are well over 30.

  24. DIGGER BEY February 28, 2014

    No Snoop! Just No! I luv how Hip Hop is embracing new things but purses, wigs, lip stick, skirts, blouses and any other femine things are a HELL NO on a rapper, unless its a female rapper.

  25. cocobutta February 28, 2014

    Oooh his hands look old.
    Lil’ Kim Wong did those nails good though.

    See what decades of that high dro + xtras does.
    Awaits the leggings and lipstick next.

    But hey this heifer been rocking the perm & all types of braids from loooong time sooo Snoop will do Snoop.

    “Snoop doggy doooooog oooo dooooggggggg”

  26. Bravo!! February 28, 2014

    I look Snoop hand real good, and I like his “French Menicure.” the clothing material is all wrong!! I feel if Snoop would had a suit on trailer too his correct size, and something done to his hair. The nails would have fit to the attire. I vision “pimps” rocking that style of nails with a badd tailor suit. And that my opinion!!
