Snoop Dogg was clearly seething after a tough loss in his Gangsta Gaming League Madden tournament, and let the interviewer know all about it after his match.

Snoop Dogg set up the Gangsta Gaming League in March 2019, playing alongside some of his closest gaming friends in Madden NFL matches for a few thousand dollars at each tournament.

Snoop usually wins these tournaments – he’s won four of the first six GGL’s since its inception – but took a tough loss on Wednesday, November 20, and let the interviewer know about it in his post-match interview.

After interviewer Kara Corvus asked Snoop how he felt, he responded “How the f*ck do you think I feel? I don’t feel like sh*t right now.”

Naturally, everybody burst out laughing, but Snoop was struggling to see the funny side as the interview continued. Adopting a mocking tone, he continued, “Oh I feel amazing, we took a loss,” before returning to his normal voice.

“We’re supposed to win. We’re better than that. We had a minor discrepancy with what was going on… It’s just heartbreaking when you know you would have, should have, could have.”

Snoop then got worked up again when asked who he expects to win the tournament. He said:

“I don’t know and I don’t give a f*ck, stop asking me these dumb*ss questions! We lost… Now be gone!”

He then walked out of the interview area but was smiling as he did so, clearly not as furious as the interview would lead viewers to believe.

If Snoop Dogg setting up an esports league doesn’t seem very strange in itself, his honesty in his post-match interview will be a source of envy for many professional gamers who have to watch what they say after matches due to rules set by tournament organizers, sponsors and whoever else may be involved in running their leagues.

Although Snoop has a number of personalities around him at these events, which are streamed on Snoop Dogg’s Twitch channel, it would be really interesting to see a few hip-hop powerhouses join the Gangsta Gaming League and see who the best rapper in the game really is.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
