For the Love of Green
Snoop Dogg is a lot like an onion. With several layers of greatness, the rapper coaches football for at-risk youth, as documented in his Netflix series Coach Snoop, he’s a family friend of the Kardashian clan and (according to Tommy Hilfiger himself) Snoop started the famous designer’s career. But wait… There’s more.
The artist who gave hip-hop bangers like “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Gin And Juice” is also heavy into the word of marijuana, as if fans didn’t already know that. What some may not have known is that Uncle Snoop went on television, spilling some tea.
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Tha Doggfather artist not only revealed that he smokes about 80 blunts a day, but he also shared the one person who can smoke more than he can.
“I had to hit the timeout button… I never done that before,” he said.
“Willie Nelson is the only person who’s ever out-smoked Snoop Dogg,” the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper said before joking that he, Nelson, Bob Marley alongside Cheech and Chong could form the Mount Rushmore of marijuana smokers.
Snoop’s love of cannabis doesn’t only manifest isn’t as a recreational activity. It also makes him money.
In 2015, the rapper launched Merry Jane, his own digital media company which publishes weed-related news, videos and products. Later that year, he released a line of weed products, Leafs By Snoop.
He also co-founded Casa Verde Capital, a venture capital firm launched to help grow businesses in the weed industry without selling the product itself. So far, Casa Verde Capital’s biggest investment involves LeafLink, which is an online shop that links cannabis products/brands with retailers.
In Other Newso
Other than his love weed, Snoop also a love of sharing his opinion. Around this time last year, the rapper revealed his deep disapproval of the POTUS.
As HipHopMyWay previously reported:
Snoop Dogg and jazz instrumentalists BADBADNOTGOOD dropped their new music video – “Lavender (Nightfall Remix).” Directed by YouTube pranksters Jesse Wellens and James DeFina, the video is a controversial depiction of everything from institutionalized racism, police killings, media culture, and of course … Donald Trump in clown makeup.
The track is a harkening back to the gang-banging style that Snoop Dogg was known for at the beginning of his career, and a lot of people are FLIPPING OUT over its debated meaning… including Trump!
In his most Trumptastic of tweets, President Trump fired back at Snoop immediately after seeing the video. Now might be the first time in history we have a President who is starting twitter beef with a former west coast gang banger.
When the video’s director, YouTube star Jesse Wellens, approached Snoop at an event about the concept – they were aiming to address the Philando Castile police shooting as utter “clownery.”
The video depicts veteran actor Michael Rapaport in a clown parody of the cell phone video of the shooting that went viral.
Snoop and Wellens decided to take their clown concept all the way to the top of the food chain in the video, satirizing President Trump as the Clown-in-Chief, “Ronald Klump.”
The plot of the video includes the orange-faced depiction of the president banning all dogs from entering the U.S. (as well as a few other signature Trump moves).
