Sad news came immediately after Christmas for anyone who grew up following hip hop in the 1990s. During Snoop Dogg’s early career, which is the Death Row Snoop Doggy Dogg era, “Gin & Juice” put him on the map. The music video was the brainchild of Ricky Harris.
Younger fans know Ricky Harris best as Malvo from “Everybody Hates Chris.” But, Ricky Harris also played the dad in the “Gin & Juice” music video, obviously being made up to look older. Aside from that, Harris was JW on “Moesha,” having hilarious scenes with Bernie Mac, R.I.P.
Snoop Dogg took to Instagram after Ricky Harris’ funeral. Although most have forgotten he died, Ricky Harris was laid to rest, this afternoon. Sharing a video afterward, Snoop Dogg said he was sent off “the right way.”
