"You know there's only one code out here that matters: ride or get rolled on!"
—Crow to Hero

Crow (Snoop Dogg) is the main antagonist of Def Jam Fight For NY and a secondary antagonist in Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover. He is playable villian in both games.


As the surreal and prime leader of the 1990s gangsta rap era, Snoop Dogg crossed the line between reality and fiction. Introduced to the world through Dr. Dre's The Chronic, Snoop quickly became a famous star on the rap scene. His rhyming coupled with the violence his lyrics implied created an eerie sense of reality. His debut album, 1993's Doggystyle, become the first debut album to enter the charts at No. 1. The Doggfather, his second album, was released in November 1996. It featured the single "Murder was the Case." The solo "Da Game Is to Be Sold Not to Be Told", Snoop's first effort for No Limit, followed in 1998; No Limit Top Dogg appeared a year later and Dead Man Walkin' the year after that. Tha Last Meal followed in December of that same year. Late in 2002, Snoop released his first album for Capitol, Paid tha Cost to Be da Bo$$. Snoop has become a cultural phenomenon, appearing in movies such as Training Day, Starsky & Hutch, and Soul Plane.

Role in Def Jam Fight For NY[]

"Any fighters here that wanna make some real money? You best join up with me before it's too late."

Snoop Dogg plays the crew boss Crow in Def Jam Fight For NY. Crow started out as a gang-banger on the West Coast before making his way to New York and hooking up with D-Mob's crew. Formerly D-Mob's advisor, Crow was dismissed from the crew a few years back after the two failed to see eye-to-eye on business strategies. Since then Crow has been biding his time, looking for an opportunity for payback against his old boss. His operations are based out of Club Murder, up in Washington Heights, and he maintains control of all of Harlem.

Crow makes his first appearance in the storyline after Hero defeats Ice-T in Club 357. After failing to claim the club, he confronts D-Mob and his men claiming that the club will be his eventually angering D-Mob further. Before he leaves, he makes an announcement that those who want to make some real money would join up with his crew before it's too late. Later on, after losing more clubs, he offers D-Mob a "Winner Takes All" match between both crews best fighters. After Crack's defeat, he's seen angrily leaving Club Murder as D-Mob mockingly tells him to send a postcard from New Jersey. He replies by sending three of his men to assassinate D-Mob, which results the loss of Trejo. He later sends Magic to Gun Hill Garage to deliver a message to Hero.

After many failed attempts, Crow confronts Hero at The Limit and offers to double what D-Mob is paying him if he works for him. After Hero refuses, he ambushes Hero in his home with Magic and Sticky and tells him that he kidnapped his girlfriend and if he wants her back, he'll have to earn back all of his clubs (hiding the fact that they were never going to let her live). After Doc's defeat, Hero demands Crow to tell him where he's hiding her. He responds by telling him that he's got one last job for him, that was to finish off Blaze. Hero manages to betray Crow at the last moment and saves Blaze, then defeats Sticky and saves his girlfriend from the burning tire factory, although she is in a coma as a result of the fire.

Crow is later confronted at his headquarters along with the rest of his men. After he orders his men to take out all of D-Mob's soldiers, he goes into his office and ambushes Hero with Magic aiming a gun at his head, but was shocked when Magic gave Hero the gun instead. When Hero turned his back on him, when he decided that he wasn't worth it, Crow stabs him in the back and the attacks, resulting in a tussle that ends with Crow being thrown out the window. With Crow's, and most of his lieutenants either deceased or defected to D-Mob's Crew, it's possible that Crow's Crew is now disbanded and defunct thanks to the remaining members.

Role in Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover[]

"You rise up out of nowhere and now you think you're everything? Nah, man. I hope you're ready for a good beatin', boy."
—Crow to the Hero from Brooklyn

Crow plays a slightly substantial role in this game, as the tertiary antagonist. Around this time, he was the leader of the Manhatten crew (or The Bronx crew if you chose the Manhatten Crew) and worked under D-Mob. He was given orders by him to kill O.G.. The player eventually confronts and defeats him at Da Office. Since this is a prequel story, its safe to assume that Crow survived the encounter.

  • "Thought yo boy want some real competition, Crack can use some exercise."
  • "Oh, you know. Just thought I'd come by and see how my new club is doing. Just a matter of time before we take this place over."

  • "I got a business proposition for you. I'll double whatever you get if you come and fight for me."
  • "I understand. You're down for D-Mob. That's cool. But you're a winning fighter on a losing team, and we both know it's just a matter of time. So I suggest you give it some serious though."
  • "Just though I'd see if you had a chance to reconsider my offer." - After ambushing the Hero in his own home
  • "What if I were to sweeten the pot?" - Before pulling off the hair of Hero's girlfriend
  • "What? You don't recognize your girl's hair when you see it?"

You're gonna win back my clubs, and put my bosses back in place. Anyone asks, you had a chance of heart, decided to make some real money. You say otherwise, the deal is off, and so is she."
  • "Easy. You'll get your girl. First I got one last job for you." - After the Hero defeats Redman

  • "D-Mob's done and even lost his edge. The fact that he's backin' a loser like you, pff... That's all the proof I need."
  • "You see what Crack's done to your punk ass friend Blaze? That bitch went down faster than a five dollar ho."
  • "You keep messin' with my crew, and we gon' take your ass out. So you best be out before we take you out."

  • "What you're gonna do now, bitch? You keep messin' with me, and I'll kill you and your crippled ass friend."
  • "I don't see why we gotta be enemies like this. Powerful men like us should join forces. We should squash this beef and get together on things. We can make a lot more money as a team. Give it some thought."

    • Crow's pimp suit makes him resemble the character Jimmy Bones (also portrayed by Snoop Dogg) from the 2001 horror movie Bones.
