Artificial intelligence technology in music is all the rage these days, whether for the hype or how much it literally enrages people. Regardless, Snoop Dogg's already thrown his two cents on the matter, calling its development in music "outta hand" after sharing an A.I. Michael Jackson cover of C-Murder's "Down For My N***az." However, this tech is blowing the West Coast legend's mind no matter what industry it finds itself in. Recently, Snoop went to the 2023 Milken Institute Global Conference, where A.I. and other similar topics took center stage. During his talk, he spoke on talking to an A.I. model like it was nothing, and how that shocked him.

"I got a motherf***in' A.I. right now," Snoop Dogg began. "They done made [it] for me, this n***a can talk to me. Like, me and this n***a can hold a real conversation, like for real for real. It's blowing my mind because I watched movies on this as a kid years ago when I used to see this s**t. I'm like, 'What is going on?'

"Then I heard that the old dude that created A.I. said 'This is not safe because the A.I.'s got their own minds and these motherf***ers gon' start doing their own s**t!'" the 51-year-old continued. "I'm like, 'Is we in a f***in' movie right now or what?!' The f**k, man? Do I need to invest in an A.I. so I can have one with me? Do y'all know, s**t, what the f**k?" Not only that, but Snoop Dogg also commented on the possibility of a collaborative A.I. project between Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. While he didn't dismiss the idea of pulling old vocal tracks together for something like that, he wasn't too keen on their voices being computer-generated.

Meanwhile, an A.I. Biggie cover of Tupac's "Hit 'Em Up" saw him hilariously diss himself and Bad Boy. With that in mind, maybe that future that the "Lodi Dodi" MC is hesitant towards might come sooner rather than later. Still, the industry pushback against the abuse of artificial intelligence in music seems to resonate with fans a lot. However, it doesn't take away from people's less disrespectful or malicious uses of the technology, which could actually usher in a new era of creativity. Until then, maybe hold off on that investment, Doggfather; it might just clone you for profit. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on A.I. music and Snoop Dogg.
