Snoop Dogg (I outright refuse to call him Snoop Lion) is a pretty colourful guy with a lot of charisma, which has helped to maintain his notoriety in the past few years since his music isn’t all that great anymore (WHATEVER, The Doggfather was deep!). He gives some great interviews because he just really doesn’t filter what he says and whether or not anyone is gonna like it. This is most likely because he’s really far too high to care.
In his most recent foray into hilarious candor, Snoop revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that he became a pimp earlier in his career – like a real, actual pimp – because he’d dreamed of doing so as a child and that it was all about that love and passion for the field rather than the money that made him do it. HILARIOUS.
“I put an organization together,” the rapper-turned Rasta artist Snoop Lion tells contributing editor Jonah Weiner in the new issue of Rolling Stone. “I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten bitches on it. I could fire a bitch, fuck a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program. City to city, titty to titty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer.”
While he doesn’t name names, he claims professional athletes would use his services. “If I’m in a city where where the Denver Broncos or the Nuggets play, I get a couple of they players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number,” he says. “A lot of athletes bought pussy from me.”
Unlike most pimps, Snoop says he let his women keep the money. “I’d act like I’d take the money from the bitch, but I’d let her have it,” he says. “It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp . . . As a kid I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and bitches to match. I said, ‘Fuck it – I’m finna do it.’”
Well, we can’t say Snoop isn’t an ambitious businessman, I suppose. I wonder how much he made? Anyway, y’all may wonder where the hell Snoop’s wife Shante is in all of this. You probably also came to the conclusion (if you know anything about Snoop/Shante’s relationship) that she was right the hell there, watching him do it. BINGO!
Somehow, Snoop’s relationship with his wife Shante Broadus has survived all this. “My wife had to take a backseat to this shit,” he says. “And I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a nigga, but she stayed in my corner. So when I decided to let it go, she was still there.”
Pfffft, that’d be the day!
