Snoop Dogg may have his history a little mixed up!

In an interview with the New York Post about his new album, Bush, the D-O-double-G started expounding on his favorite show: Game of Thrones.

He even contributed a song to official Season 5 mixtape.

(Worth noting: The Post reporter says Snoop Dogg put on a fake British accent for the entirety of this interview, so we encourage you to read it that way.)

"When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honored because I’m truly a fan of the show," Snoop said. "I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, 'F - - k it, let’s do it!'"

Then he talked about why he loves the show: It's historical significance (???).

"I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here," he said. "I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now."

Now, in Snoop Dogg's defense, Game of Thrones is based on the War of the Roses, which was a real historical event in European history. The show has had more than a few parallels to the epic dynastic battle between the great houses of Lancaster and York.

When the reporter asked what he had learned from the series, he said, "That kings still rule and a bitch f - - ked everything up, in every situation!"

Which, to be fair, is a reasonable approximation of what actually happened in history.
