[Not] Neil Young ...

Listens to Snoop Dogg????

7/26/2011 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ MISTAKE! Soooooo ... it's Dwight Yoakam. Our bad.

Music icon Neil Young Dwight Yoakam admits he isn't the biggest fan of hip-hop music ... but when he IS in the mood for some rap, Dwight claims he loves himself some BIG SNOOP DOGG!! 072611_neil_young_v2_still



Young Yoakam was on his way into the Maroon 5 concert in L.A. last night when we asked what he has on his iPod.

After dropping a few names, we asked if he ever listens to rap ... and he explained, "I never listen to much rap other than what everybody knows about ... Snoop Dogg is good."

Fo sheezy.

UPDATE: The person who wrote this post has issued a formal apology.

Here's the thing about that hat. Stone temple pilots used the STP logo on an album, so.... That could be a stone temple pilot hat or... It is a STP oil company hat. Either way, TMZ does not know their celebs. WTG dumb a$$es.

That's Dwight Yoakam wearing an STP hat. STP is the logo for an engine oil treatment.

Wow, way to look like total f-ing amateurs, TMZ.

You just posted "someone" and claimed them as a "Neil Young".

In reality, we have no idea if this is "Dwight Yoakam" or Dirk Johnson the Gas Station Bathroom Attendant.

Seriously,
don't
just
post
random-unfounded-crap.

Embarrassing.
