Snoop Lion/Snoop Dogg took his blunted wisdom to the fans yesterday for an extensive Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, even bringing out his kids and wife to make it a Broadus family AMA. Snoop took the time to chat with fans about his recent performance with Charlie Wilson at the BET Awards, who he thinks is the rightful ruler of Westeros on Game of Thrones ("mother of dragons or tha midget"), the unreleased track he did with Michael Jackson when the King of Pop was still alive (it's still in the vault, unfortunately) and much more.

Below, we've collected some of Snoop's standout responses, and you can also check out the rapper-turned-rasta's bonus AMA video in which he chats about his new song "No Guns Allowed" and gives some pretty pointed advice on how to meet girls.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
