Earlier this month, the legendary comedian spoke about the red carpet of his new Netflix film Day Shift, and he revealed the last conversation he had with Ye was a productive one.
Foxx says, “The last studio session was a while ago, but the last time I ran into Ye, it was a good meeting. I won’t divulge the details but just hugged that brother and said ‘I love you man,’ and with Ye, Me and Snoop was talking bout this in the interview. Ye got some magic.”

Kanye West and Jamie Foxx Continue To Make Moves
The Chicago rap legend has been documented for his ironclad work ethic several times, including in Netflix’s jeen-yuhs docuseries, even though Foxx didn’t discuss Ye’s work in detail.
The two collaborated on the smash hit “Gold Digger” on Kanye West’s sophomore album Late Registration as well as “Slow Jamz” with Twista off 2003’s College Dropout.
Snoop Dogg Gifts Jamie Foxx Death Row Chain
To celebrate Jamie Foxx’s career and their longstanding friendship, Snoop Dogg gave him a Death Row chain during the Day Shift red carpet event.
Snoop tells Entertainment Tonight, “Yeah I got something for the Foxx man you know for looking out for me, for speaking up for me, for putting me in this motion picture. I wanted to gift him with something special.”
Foxx was so surprised upon receiving the red Death Row box. He said, “You gotta be kidding me man. This better not be what I think it is cause I saw everyone else getting one and I didn’t wanna say nothing in the interview. The Death Row chain man. Rose gold, and let me tell you why that’s so significant. I watched this man as a young artist sometimes have to fight for his life, and he was giving everybody anthems and songs. While we were partying and dancing sometimes he’d come to the crib and he’d be like, ‘I don’t know.’”
He goes on to say: “So for this day to come to here for us to see him bloom it’s special. To see him kicking ass in this movie as an actor, and at the same time anybody can tell you, Snoop is the ambassador of grace, entertainment and fun. Anytime you say Snoop Doggy Dogg, your soul lights up. So for this moment right here. It means everything my dude.”
