Snoop Dogg recently
inked a deal with Platinum One Media to launch a new business with the rapper
– foot-long hot dogs.
According to the Boston Herald, the rapper’s latest venture
is “Snoop Doggs,” a new hot dog line launching with partners Franco
Petrucci and Jeff Earp.
Earp is a former owner of a Joe & Nemo’s in Massachutsetts,
a popular hot dog business that was started in 1909.
“There aren’t any celebrity hot dogs out there,”
Snoop’s brother and business manager Bing Worthington told the Herald.
“Who’s the competition? Ball Park?....Imagine a long, skinny hot
dog just like Snoop.”
The rapper’s line of hot dogs is being made in Massachusetts
and will hit grocery stores in January.
Snoop takes advantage of everything,” Bing said. “This
rap money isn’t long. Just ask MC Hammer.”

will be released Dec. 6. The movie features Snoop starring as Corde Christopher, a broke and frustrated grocery clerk who turns to pimping to earn
According to a
press release, “Corde must choose between the downward spiral of the fast
life and the self-realization of whether he is a pimp or a man.”
