Rapper Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion has no problem smoking marijuana with his kids, explaining “my kids can do whatever the hell they want”.
He sounds like father of the year material, huh?
Snoop is currently helping his 18-year-old son Corde launch his rap career under the name Spanky Danky and said he has no problem with his son enjoying a little ganja.
Snoop told The Hollywood Reporter, “What better way to [learn] than from the master?”
The rapper is referring to Twitter photos that Spank posted showing him lighting his dad’s huge bong.
“My kids can do whatever the hell they want,” Snoop says of his children. Adding, “For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf**kers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me.”
In his recent interview, Snoop learned Mariah Carey was making around $18 million for a one-year contract with the show and said, “I’ll do American Idol”, before jokingly yelling to his manager, “Get on it!”
The rapper/reggae star is known for his love of weed and offensive language. But, he claims he’ll clean up his act a bit if he gets the job.
Snoop stated, “I’ll clean my act up, but I’m still Rastafari”.
“American Idol” will return to television in January with Mariah Carey filling one of the slots on the judging panel after Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left the show last month.
Snoop Dogg has announced he is leaving the rap world and becoming a reggae singer.
The Long Beach rapper is also changing his name to “Berhane” or “Snoop Lion”. Yes, seriously!
Snoop said at the press event at Miss Lily’s jerk joint in New York, “This awakening was necessary. I don’t even know why, I don’t know how. I thought I was going to make another gangsta record. I thought I was going to do another pimp album. I thought I was going to do what I do. But this called me and put all of that to rest.”
The musician adds, “I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion,” he said. “I didn’t know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there.”
The Norwegian media are reporting that rapper Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was briefly detained at an airport in Norway after entering the country with marijuana and a large amount of cash.
The Customs officials could not reveal his identity according to their laws, but did say an American artist was caught with marijuana by a drug-sniffing dog.
A customs officer who wished to remain anonymous said that person was also carrying way more cash than is legally allowed and was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,600) for the violations.
Snoop is in Norway to perform at the Hove Festival festival in the southern town of Kristiansand.
