Snoop Dogg has really gotten into Twitch over the last few months, although it does seem as if he's been unable - or unwilling - to work out some recent kinks.
The iconic rapper delights his viewers at least a couple of times a week by appearing on stream, firing up a spliff, and playing through Madden NFL. That's pretty much all he ever does, but do his streams need much more than that? If it ain't broke, etc.
Snoop Dogg streams are always eventful. You may remember the time he rage quit and forgot to turn his stream off, leaving a camera pointing at an empty room for around seven hours. Refresh your memory of that day below:
Recently, it looks as if Snoop moved his gaming setup and streaming gear to a new location - and that move may have brought with it some technical issues. In a broadcast earlier this week, it quickly became apparent that Mr Dogg had muted himself on his end. Because he has the chat function disabled, his viewers were unable to tell him what was going on and he streamed for over an hour in complete silence.
The assumption was that word would reach him after this stream, and that he'd fix whatever issue had contributed to his involuntary vow of silence. Not so. Over on Reddit, one viewer gently pointed out that "Snoop Dogg has now streamed without audio three times in the last four days," and still doesn't seem to have any idea.
On the one hand, I find it incredibly easy to believe that Snoop has no idea his streams are muted. I find it even easier to believe that he does know and just doesn't care enough to get it fixed. Meanwhile, some fans conspiratorially believe that these last three streams have been muted because Snoop isn't actually the one playing them - he's simply spectating another stream while on camera enjoying some of the devil's lettuce.
We'll keep an eye on the rapper's next few streams and see if we can't work out what exactly is going on.
