The video, posted on Snoop's page, depicted a happy moment between the actor and his son, emphasizing their close relationship. Fans were intrigued by the gift, which highlighted McConaughey and Snoop Dogg's friendship.

Before the hip-hop mogul took over ownership in 2022, Snoop signed to Death Row Records in the 1990s, a label that also housed legendary rap acts like Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, and Nate Dogg. According to NPR, he purchased the renowned label from the MNRK Music Group after co-founder Suge Knight lost it in 2006 as a result of filing for bankruptcy.

The two showed off their bond in 2019 while promoting their stoner comedy, The Beach Bum, on shows like Carpool Karaoke and Jimmy Kimmel Live! During an appearance on the latter, the former co-stars admitted they couldn’t remember when exactly they met, but Snoop said their friendship and working relationship were like “magic.”
