The Doggfather is getting his own movie.
Snoop Dogg has one of the longest and most successful rap careers of anyone in the game. The Doggfather has been pivotal in the birth and dominance of West Coast hip-hop, so it only makes sense he would get his own movie. Although we did get to see Lakeith Stanfield play Snoop in the critically acclaimed Straight Outta Compton flick, it's time for the Dogg to shine on his own.
Snoop recently sat down with Vic Jagger of 102.3, and he went into details about how he envisions his biopic playing out. “I’m thinking more along the lines of when you watch great shows like Narcos on Netflix,” he began. “You know, how like Narcos went from Escobar to the Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico. I’m thinking like a Snoop Dogg biopic... late 60's with my mother and father. Pops in Vietnam... the hippie era growing up."
He continued on to drop the biggest news of the interview. “I already got with somebody. I don’t even want to expose the names like that but I got some big wigs connected to it, some wigs," he hinted. "It’s like some wiggathons. If I said these names, I mean these are some real wiggathons. So you want me to tell you their names? In conjunction with Lee Daniels and Ryan Coogler.” If Coogler and Daniels are the minds behind this Snoop Dogg biopic, it may be the biggest hip-hop movie of the last decade.
