Nearly nine months after the release of Dr. Dre’s “Kush,” Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am speaks on Snoop Dogg‘s line, “tighter than the pants on Will.i.am.”
“When Snoop said ‘Tighter than the pants on will.i.am,’ he was talking about how my flow is tight, how my style’s tight,” he explained. “My budget’s not tight, though; everything’s tight but the budget. [Laughs.] I looked at it as ‘That’s dope.’”
There you have it; he takes it as a complement. He’s so unfazed by the line, that he is working with Tha Doggfather on his upcoming television show, i.am.FIRST: Science is Rock & Roll.
