Snoop Dogg was once out-gangstered by none other than rhythm and blues legend Dionne Warwick.

Don't believe us? Well, both Warwick and Snoop have confirmed it in a new CNN documentary on the life of the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer.

In Dionne Warwick: Don’t Make Me Over, Warwick spilled the tea on her career and how she shaped others, namely, Snoop Dogg.

Turns out, in the 1990s, she'd had enough of rap songs with misogynistic lyrics.

So, Warwick staged an intervention for Snoop Dogg and his famous rapper pals.

She set the meeting for 7am sharp, and Snoop recalled he and his mates were so intimidated that they were all present and ready in her driveway by 6:52 a.m.

"We were kind of, like, scared and shook up," Snoop said as per the CNN documentary.

"We’re powerful right now, but she’s been powerful forever. Thirty-some years in the game, in the big home with a lot of money and success."

When they arrived, Warwick demanded right there in her driveway that they call her a b***h to her face as those were the words they were using to describe women in their songs.

Snoop revealed: "She was checking me at a time when I thought we couldn’t be checked. We were the most gangsta as you could be, but that day at Dionne Warwick’s house, I believe we got out-gangstered that day."

Warwick revealed she gave them quite the earful right then and there.

The 82-year-old singer said: "They all showed up and, yeah, it did work. I think what it was was that they needed to hear me."

She explained how she simply reasoned with them to get her message across.

Warwick recounted: "You guys are all going to grow up. You’re going to have families. You’re going to have children. You’re going to have little girls and one day that little girl is going to look at you and say, 'Daddy, did you really say that? Is that really you?'"

She added that she pushed them to reply, asking: "What are you going to say?"From that moment Snoop vowed he would only put out 'records of joy' from then on, starting with his 1996 album Tha Doggfather.

He had a message for the American music icon: "Dionne, I hope I became the jewel that you saw when I was the little, dirty rock that was in your house. I hope I’m making you proud."
