Visit Snoop Dogg's Afrocentric retrofuture in his latest music video

New, 12 comments

Snoop Dogg's output just gets weirder and weirder as the years go by, but you can't help but be entertained. His video for "California Roll" (which actually has very little to do with the sushi) takes us back to a Los Angeles movie theater in 1946, before blasting us to a whole new, Afrocentric future with flying cars, robots, pyramids, and Stevie Wonder. The video somehow manages to blend Blade Runner and Disney's Star Tours, all wreathed in a haze of Snoop's signature weed smoke, as Pharrell sings in his priestly Egyptian robes. It's weird, but just like Nia Long, we can feel ourselves being carried away.
