Snoop Dogg and Banda MS Team Up for a New Romantic Banda-Rap and We’re All in Love

Snoop Dogg's love of banda and Mexican music is well chronicled, but his recent foray into the world takes it to the next level.

The Dogfather is featured on Qué Maldición by Sinaloa supergroup Banda MS de Sergio Lizárraga. The animated music video to the track just dropped and is a welcome distraction from both the coronavirus pandemic and a spat of violence against street vendors in Los Angeles that has fueled fears of racial tension in a city under lockdown.

The Long Beach native has a lot of love from the Latinx community and he's got a lot of love for the community. All of that shines in this song about unrequited love.

Qué Maldición is about how much it sucks to miss someone. Snoop kicks off his verse with some Spanglish rap spitting, "Every time you leave there's only one thing that I know. What's that? Baby, yo te extraño." Later he raps "soy tu perrito yo allá. Even when I get out, I come right back to the yard."

The full verse copped from Rap Genius is below.

Every time you leave there's only one thing that I knowWhat's that? Baby, yo te extrañoMaybe that's my culpa, ahGuilty 'cause I go away a lotBut say you want me to stayAnd I won't salir, I'm hereWhenever you say that you need meSi me necesitas, I'll arrive, believe meD-O-GG, soy tu perrito yo alláEven when I get out, I come right back to the yard, ahMami, me duele cuando no estás conmigoY yo que soy tu hombre, todavía soy amigoTeddy, yo te amo, that means, "I love you dearly'"And every time you gone, I'm always gon' want you near meSnoopie
