Snoop Dogg Shows Off His 'Xbox OG' Status With Xbox Series X Fridge From Microsoft


Snoop Dogg has been gifted an Xbox Series X fridge inspired by the viral memes about the size of the console when it was first revealed. The California legend showed off the kitchen item in a since-deleted Instagram post, which featured a glowing Xbox logo on the front.

Inside the fridge was an Xbox Series X birthday cake reading “Happy birthday to the Xbox OG,” an actual Xbox Series X console, gin and juice in honor of his classic 1993 song “Gin & Juice” and Xbox-themed jewelry. The fridge also played the startup sound for the Xbox Series X when it opened.

At the end of the video, Snoop said the EA Sports tagline, “It’s in the game.”

General Manager of Xbox’s marketing Aaron Greenberg also tweeted about the fridge, which was sent to popular YouTuber iJustine as well as Snoop.

“You knew we had to do this, check out the full unboxing of the fastest, most powerful fridge!” he said. “#Xbox And Chill.”

In April, Snoop called out out Microsoft and founder Bill Gates for the Xbox servers going down while playing Madden NFL on the Xbox One.

“EA Sports, y’all muthafuckin’ server is down!” he said. “Get that shit back up, we trying to play. Bunch of muthafuckas at home that’s locked and loaded right now, FIX THIS SHIT! Bill Gates, Microsoft, whoever the fuck. All these muthafuckin’ bullshit ass vaccines y’all trying to give us… fix the muthafuckin’ video game. Now!”

He added in the caption, “@microsoft @thisisbillgates @eamaddennfl hurrrrr up n fix this shit.”

Snoop isn’t the only rapper getting special gaming treatment ahead of the new consoles. Travis Scott recently became PlayStation’s new creative partner after receiving the PS5 as early as September.

“I’m really looking forward to being able to showcase everything that Cactus Jack has worked on with Sony and the PlayStation team,” Scott said in a statement. “Most importantly I’m excited to see how the PlayStation fans and family respond, and I look forward to running some games with everybody very soon!”

The Xbox Series X and Series S are set for release on November 10, while the PlayStation 5 will arrive on November 12 across North America.
