The rapper made the big reveal during a recent Beats 1 interview with Ebro Darden, where Snoop shared the socially conscious inspiration behind the track.
“The reason why we gonna make this record is because Black and white matters right now, the love that we have for each other,” the rapper explained, calling Nelson his “big brother,” and adding that music has the power to bring people together.
“It’s not about color, it’s about love, it’s about the appreciation of humanity. I love you as a person, Willie, I love your music,” he added. “As Snoop, I love you and I want to work with you. When you build that brotherhood, the color is out the window.”
It won’t be the old friends’ first song together. Their past collaborations include “My Medicine” from 2009, and 2012’s “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” featuring Kris Kristofferson and Jamey Johnson.
