Snoop Dogg Once Turned Down $2 Million Offer To DJ At A Michael Jordan Event


It looks like Snoop Dogg missed his opportunity to meet NBA legend Michael Jordan!

During a recent interview, the Death Row Records legend revealed Michael Jordan, 59, once offered him $2 million to DJ at his event. Unfortunately, Snoop Dogg, 50, had to decline due to other obligations. To this day, Snoop still hasn’t met the basketball legend turned businessman.

Snoop Dogg explained,

“One of the craziest deals I turned down was $2 million to DJ for a Michael Jordan event, and I turned it down. And I’ve never met Michael Jordan, and I wanna meet him…. ‘Cause I was doing some other sh*t, I had sh*t to do and I had way more customers before I get to you [laughs]. Nah, but I never met Michael Jordan, and I wanna meet him, and I wanna meet him on a different – I don’t wanna meet him on no DJing. I wanna meet him as a fan, as a boss.”

He continued,

“It’s like, ‘Mike, I’ve loved you since North Carolina, I’m a big fan of yours, I love what you do, you one of the greatest to ever do it. Give me a couple of secrets on how you did this. Can I get a picture with you? You wanna smoke a blunt? Hey man, it’s been real.'”

Snoop Dogg then explained why he respects Michael Jordan so much, noting that he’s been a fan ever since Jordan was playing college basketball in North Carolina.

“How couldn’t I [look up to him a lot]? I’m a Black man. I watched him at North Carolina as a freshman do his thing and beat Georgetown. I was a Georgetown fan back then, Dawg Pound, Georgetown Hoyas. So I had to fall in love with him ’cause he hit my team. Then the next year, I saw him win the Player of the Year, then I saw him do his thing with the [Chicago] Bulls and he hit 63 on [Larry] Bird and broke his ankle. I’m like, ‘This muthaf****a’s different!’ Then his first Championship came through us – he had to beat the Lakers.”

Snoop continued,

“So think about what I just told you: he hit the Georgetown Hoyas which was my team, he hit the Lakers which was my team, so it’s respect. You earn respect through competition I think, and you can honor that. As far as if you box somebody, you may talk sh*t about them then once y’all finish boxing, you like, ‘This muthaf**a can really fight.’ Y’all end up hugging and shaking [hands], you be like, ‘You know what? You a bad muthaf**a, I respect you, dawg.'”
