nardwaur continues to be the best music interviewer ever

so of course he brought back the best SXSW interview.

the fact it was with Snoop Dogg Lion is just a happy accident.

what amazes me about this is we get to see Snoop even more less-guarded than normal.

Nardwaur is a master at helping his subjects feel relaxed. maybe its the hat.

maybe its that he is always giving people the coolest stuff.

maybe its because he not only knows music but loves it.

watch how Snoop quizzes Nard as to what record label he was on more than a decade ago

which is a tough trick because the D-O double G has been around the block, nephew.

its almost 14 minutes of interview (which most tv and radio shows will tell you is way too long)

and ends in the oddest/beautiful way.

i thank a certain canadian for turning me on to this priceless gem.
