Hi. I am doing a little research on this for a project. I know rottweilers and pit bulls have ties to rap/hip-culture:

There's a rapper named Pitbull:

Ludacris had a pitbull on the cover of an album:

There's a rapper named Rottweiler:



What other domestic dog breeds are tied to rap/hip-hop culture?

Someone told me Doberman Pinschers. Snoop Dogg turned into one in his video for "Who Am I? (What's My Name?)"

Please help- thank you.

@Sturgis,
Chihuahuas aren't actually macho and/or threatening. From what I have seen and read online a lot of rappers favor macho and/or threatening dogs.

@Sturgis,
That chihuahua and pitbull should go on a rap tour together.
That chihuahua may be small, but he has skills.

I wanted serious answers to my topic question.

I went elsewhere and asked the topic question, and I was told:

"Dandie Dinmont Terriers and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers. Oh and of course Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen.

Most rappers are into violence and complete trash so large, aggressive dogs - bully breed mutts, Cane Corso, Presa Canario, etc."

I gave you a serious answer. Just because a chihuahua doesn't match up with your delusions, does not make them any less serious. Your initial post, did not indicate that you wanted an aggressive creature, only a dog that could and would rap.

Further, chihuahuas can be quite intimidating.

@Sturgis,
Lol.

Seriously, I apologize. I should have specified I wanted tough, macho and/or aggressive dog breeds commonly associated with rap/hip-hop culture.

I am trying to find a definitive source that verifies what domestic dog breeds have ties to rap/hip-hop culture. I have yet to find one.

@JGoldman10,
Snoop Dogg's "doggness" and his becoming really a dog in "What's My Name" is primarily a respect of the music of George Clinton, regarding his iconic song entitled "Atomic Dog." "What's My Name" was Snoop Dogg's debut video, and in this very song, samples are used from "Atomic Dog." With his gesture Snoop expressed the fact that his music has strong roots in the music of Clinton and his companions. And not only his, Snoop's music, he expressed a general thing, the fact that in the 90's many other rappers used George Clinton, Funkadelic, Parliament samples in his songs. Actually, that music was a goldmine for them, they regarded it as a legacy. Also, a George Clinton album came in 1996, which had come into being with the co-operation of many famous rappers, like Ice Cube, Q-Tip, Coolio, Busta Rhymes. However, you can't determine what kind of dog the Atomic Dog is. And "dogs of the world" is heard in the song. So it is a question of disposition, temperament that what kind of dog are chosen as a "totem animal" by a rapper.
