Jamie Foxx Explains How He Got Snoop Dogg to Intimidate His Daughter's Boyfriend

·2 min read

In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jamie Foxx detailed the time he got Snoop Dogg to intimidate his daughter’s boyfriend.

Discussing his new book Act Like You Got Some Sense, Foxx said that he has tried to utilize what his grandparents have taught him in bringing up his daughters. “Which, in the book you’ll see doesn’t always work,” he added. “I wanted to break down those barriers with your daughters, because your daughter’s gonna need you. Especially when it comes to guys and relationships, I mean who else would know better than us? And so, by doing it early it pays dividends when they really have serious questions about guys I’m gonna kill.”

From there, the conversation shifted to how his approach to his daughter’s dating lives resulted in him employing Snoop Dogg to intimidate her boyfriend. “What happened was my daughter, who didn’t know that I had already run a background check on her boyfriend, he comes to the crib and Snoop happens to be there. I said, ‘Snoop there he is right there. Shake him up,’” he explained.

“Snoop walked over to my daughter’s boyfriend and just said, ‘Hey what’s up? What’s up cuz. Hey, look here you know. We her uncles, you know what I’m saying? So act accordingly homie.’” He wanted to make it clear to the boyfriend that if he ever wronged Foxx’s daughter, he’d be getting a visit from Snoop Dogg.

Elsewhere in the show, Fallon and Foxx teamed up for a sketch in which they played an R&B duo that never gets to the singing part of their songs. Instead, they just talk seductively over gentle production, before things inevitably start to fall apart.

Check out both portions from the show above. Act Like You Got Some Sense is out on Oct. 19.
