Snoop Dogg Remixes Shirley Caesar’s ‘U Name It’ Viral Sensation

Snoop Dogg gets ready for Thanksgiving by cooking up a special remix to Shirley Caesar’s viral “U Name It” sensation.

“U Name It Holiday Anthem” features Tha Doggfather rhyming over a DJ Battlecat beat while Shirley Caesar sings about her now-famous “beans, greens, tomatoes, potatoes, lambs, rams, hogs, dogs, chickens” and, of course, “turkeys.”

“Doggy in the kitchen, cookin’ chicken and rice,” rhymes Snoop. “Thanksgiving, yeah, I’m doing it right / Pop up, potluck, full of good food / Birds say Thursday I’m in a good mood.”

From there, the Thanksgiving bars continue with rhymes about football, standing tall, and eating German chocolate cake with Kool-Aid. All the while, the viral Caesar lyrics, which have been in videos by the likes of Chris Brown and Ace Hood, act as the song’s anchor.

Interestingly enough, “U Name It Holiday Anthem” comes just after “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” was renewed for a second season and right after their Thanksgiving episode, which featured 2 Chainz.
