Six Very Important Interactions Between Rappers And Dogs

3. Kay Gee The Almighty & DJ Drew, "She's A Dog"

Rappers might love dogs, but they also really like to characterize women as behaving in a manner akin to canines. Going well beyond mere flagrant use of the b-word, golden era footnote Kay Fee The Almighty dropped this rugged ode to back up his stance. Key quip: "The A.S.P.C.A. scooped her up in a net."

2. Waka Flocka Flame's PETA Ads

Atlanta shout-rapper Waka Flocka Flame might come across as a boisterous buffoon on record, but in real life he's a total sweetie. So in touch with the animal kingdom is Waka that he recently shot a series of ads for animal-welfare activists PETA. The spots included him helpfully pointing out, "An animal isn't going to curse you out, an animal ain't gon' fight you. It's going to show you nothing but love. Animals are just like you, so be cautious of what you do." (If you were wondering, Waka's puppy in the ad is named Daphna.)

1. DMX's Dogs

DMX's batshit crazy obsession with dogs is well known: He has the name of his first canine love, Boomer, tattooed on his body; he makes barking noises when he raps; and when he escaped from an upstate prison he was chased through the field by a pack of wild dogs. (This happened!) Unfortunately, this is all balanced by an arrest for animal cruelty back in 2008. But lo! This moral conundrum is dwarfed by DMX's role in the now-defunct zine Life Sucks Die running a Where's Waldo? spoof spread based around finding a bunch of DMX's dogs!

Catalpa, with the Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, TV On The Radio, Umphrey's McGee, A$AP Rocky, Girl Talk, and many other artists, takes place at Icahn Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
