The icon was asked by Nardwuar, a Canadian celebrity journalist and musician, “Did you ever have a roach called Gooch?”
In a surprising twist, the rapper answered, “Oh yeah! Gooch used to live with me.”
Snoop Dogg recalled, “I had a roach that we couldn’t kill. We tried to kill the motherfucker when we first moved in, and he wouldn’t die. So we called him ‘The Gooch.'”
“We used to leave food out for him and everything,” Snoop Dogg said.
And apparently, since The Gooch was so well fed and kept in the “six or seven months” it lived with the rapper, The Gooch grew to “the size of about a whole dollar bill.”
“He just kept getting bigger and bigger,” Snoop Dogg recalled. “I stayed in that apartment for, like, about six, seven months — cuz grew to the size of about a whole dollar bill.”
Wow. What a life The Gooch had!
