Snoop Dogg along with his bodyguard were arrested on first and second-degree murder charges in connection to the August 1993 death of Philip Woldemariam in Los Angeles. They were ultimately acquitted on all charges in the death of the rival gang member due to self-defense claims and negligence on the Los Angeles Police Department’s part.
In the midst of the case, Death Row Records released a soundtrack to the 1994 mini-film Murder Was The Case, which depicts Snoop’s death and resurrection and the title is taken from a song off his Doggystyle debut.
The soundtrack launched to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as the West Coast rhymer battled his murder case and only increased his notoriety at the time.
Snoop Dogg and the Power creator have remained good friends decades into their decorated careers. 50 recently recruited Snoop to play a pastor role in his Black Mafia Family series which is currently airing Season 1 on Starz.
