Snoop Dogg and Ed Sheeran are an unlikely pairing, perhaps. But, over the weekend, the two superstars were spotted partying together in Melbourne, Australia. 

According to Unilad, the “Bad Habits” singer, 32, dropped in to visit Snoop Dogg (whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr), 51, during his Rod Laver Arena show in Melbourne on Saturday (March 4). Sheeran was already in the city as he had recently performed back-to-back shows at Melbourne Cricket Ground as part of his “Mathematics” tour dubbed the + – = ÷ x Tour.

The pals hung out together backstage and had the time of their lives catching up.

Images of their get-together have emerged on social media thanks to Snoop who has shared them on his social pages. 

One photo posted on Snoop Dogg’s Instagram page, shows the pair chit-chatting at a table next to actor Russell Crowe. As the two converse with each other, the tables appear stacked with Red Solo Cups, rolled cigarettes, headphones, alcohol, a gift bag, and what looks like a set list.

“RU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?” The caption reads in all caps alongside the shot. 

Last year, Snoop Dogg became the owner of Death Row Records. During the bash, the rapper decided to welcome Sheeran to the family, gifting him a chunky gold necklace, featuring the record logo as the pendant. What’s more jaw-dropping is the jewelry is worth approximately $9,600 (per Daily Mail).

Another snapshot on Snoop Dogg’s Instagram page shows the California native assisting his good buddy by clasping together the ends of the necklace. Sheeran, meanwhile, can be seen smiling wide as he poses for the photo. 

“Amazing Mr. Ed,” Snoop Dogg wrote alongside the post. 

Snoop Dogg also uploaded footage of the moment. And judging by the clip, he gifted Crowe with the same gold chain. 

 “Come on. We’re waiting on you. Death Row needs that. We need that look,” Snoop Dog says as Crowe bobs his head along to some music playing in the background while opening his red box. 

“We want to see all your videos, all your dressing rooms, all your drinks, smoking all your weed – come to Death Row,” Snoop Dogg can be heard saying after taking a puff from his cigarette. “Well. I’m in your dressing room, drinking all your drinks,” Sheeran says in response before the pair cheers.

The three celebrities exchange in Snoop Dogg’s dressing room drew plenty of excitement from fans on Instagram, with one person writing, “If that doesn’t show you how people from different backgrounds can be great friends, nothing can. 😍😍😍🔥🔥🔥.” 

Another person wrote, “Omg. There is so much perfection in this photo. This is a trio we didn’t know we needed 🙌.”

“A few good stories in that room 👏👏,” a third person added.

Dr. Dre, The D.O.C., Michael ‘Harry O’ Harris, and Suge Knight launched Death Row Records in 1991. The label experienced success in its early years featuring West Coast-based artists that included Snoop Dog, tha Dogg Pound, MC Hammer, Dre, and Tupac Shakur.

Following a series of misfortunes and bankruptcy in 2006, Snoop Dogg acquired the company from the Blackstone-controlled company MNRK Music Group in 2022, intending to uncap its potential. 

“I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value,” Snoop Dogg said in a press release. “It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members. This is an extremely meaningful moment for me. I would like to personally thank the teams at Blackstone, MNRK, and especially David Kestnbaum, who worked collaboratively with me over several months to make this exciting homecoming a reality. I’m looking forward to building the next chapter of Death Row Records.”
