It’s no surprise that Snoop Dogg is one of the biggest “Game of Thrones” fans outside of the Seven Kingdoms. He raps on the “Lannister’s Anthem” on the “Catch the Throne, Volume II” mixtape, and he even got stoned with Seth Rogen and recapped “GoT.”
But if the Snoop D-O-double-G could blaze with anyone in Westeros, who would it be?
The Daily Beast caught up with the rapper to find out. “Of course Tyrion Lannister! He knows how to party,” Snoop said. (And we totally agree.) Tyrion is also Snoop’s favorite character in the HBO series. But why, you ask? “Cuz he likes to have a good time and party with bad b**ches,” Snoop told the Daily Beast. Yup.
Although Snoop loves “Game of Thrones” with all of his heart, we’re not sure he knows the show is just a show. While talking about his upcoming album “Bush” with the New York Post, Snoop explained why he’s so into “GoT.”
“I watch it for historic reasons to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here,” Snoop said. “I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.” Yes, that is an actual thing Snoop Dogg actually said about a TV show with dragons and frozen zombies.
But then again, author George R.R. Martin has said his books are heavily influenced by history, and the Red Wedding and even The Mountain vs. The Viper fight were historically based. So Snoop isn’t that far off.
