Taylor Hicks Goes Gangsta

6/19/2006 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Hicks is back kickin' it in is home state of Alabama. The recently named "hottest bachelor" winner, is so hot that he got to drop some rhymes with none other than Snoop Dogg this past weekend.

Snoop was in 'Bama performing at Birmingham's City Stage Festival on Saturday. Hicks hopped up on stage to join Snoop on "Gin and Juice." Hicks played a little harmonica and busted a few dance moves as well. Don't worry Snoop, we won't tell anyone back in Compton.

Showing off his street cred, Hicks gave props to the D - O - Double G:

"I have the greatest respect for Snoop Dogg as an artist, but also as a family man, a businessman and an integral part of pop culture," Hicks said in an interview downtown Saturday afternoon. "Rap music has the most advanced lyricism there is. Rap is real; there's nothing pretentious about it. I'm very excited about appearing with Snoop. I think it's great."

Fo' shizzle, American Izzle.

Dee said "BTW, Taylor & Elliot are hanging out today in LA."

While I am sure that Taylor and Elliot are indeed friends, unless Taylor has a clone or is adept at teleportation, he was not hanging out with Mr. Tamin in LA on June 19. He put in a appearance at a neighborhood bar in Birmingham to support the local musicians for writer's night. And yes, I saw him there with my very own eyes.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, simply criticize those who can. Get off Taylors back.

Oops! some of you misunderstood my post and I guess it sounded harsh, yes I think Taylor is a great performer, I don't think he is a no talent bum or anything of the sort, I only know what I'm seeing and reading, I don't think he's Hot! sorry, I don't, I don't think he'll be around a long time unless he can record smash hits instead of just touring, not everyone wants to be routed out of their seats and dance, those that do will love him, as for Elliott, well he has an unusual talent, probably do better in recording, even Taylor admits he has not heard a throat like that in years, which was very kind of him to say. Taylor is just not my cup of tea and to compare him to Elvis is a big mistake since those are big shoes to fill, I don't think he sounds anything like Elvis and he certainly doesn't look like him, he would be better off just being himself since everyone loves him the way he is anyway. To each his own, he seems to be selling his single so I guess that makes me wrong about his talent , everyone can't like him ya know. No need to get testy. :-)
