If you think Nipsey Hussle gives off a Snoop Dogg vibe, you are certainly not alone.

In fact, Snoop asked his fellow Angeleno to play him in the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.

In an interview with DJ Whoo Kidd, Snoop explained why Nipsey turned him down.

“I would’ve preferred Nipsey Hussle for the look,” Snoop said. “But Nipsey wanted to do his own thing, which I respect.”

“He don’t wanna be in my shadows as far as being so much associated with Snoop Dogg,” he continued. “And he’s doing a great job of creating his own lane right now, so I respect him for that.”

Snoop added that while the actor (Keith Stanfield) who plays him in the film does a good job, there’s not as much as a resemblances as there would have been with Nipsey.

Straight Outta Compton hits theaters August 14th.
