Snoop Dogg Says Series About His Life Is In The Works
Snoop Dogg is ready to tell the story of his life through a biopic series.
Snoop Dogg [born Calvin Broadus] spoke to Yahoo! Entertainment and said he already has ideas mapped out, explaining,
“I think what makes the most sense to me is the ‘Snoop Dogg anthology,’ the life story of Snoop Dogg, where it starts with my mother and father meeting each other before I was born, to me being born, to me growing through the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Me being the ‘Black Forest Gump,’ so to speak, seeing me in all of these highlighted moments in American history.”
“We’re developing that, putting it together as we speak, just trying to take my time and put the right information out. I don’t want to rush to it just because ‘Straight Outta Compton‘ was successful. I want to take my time and make sure that I’ve put together the right infrastructure of how I became to be me.”
Snoop Dogg says he wouldn’t consider the project a biopic per-say, but more of an anthology.
“I don’t see it being a biopic, because I can’t give all of this great information and entertainment in 2 hours. If I give it to you in an anthology, you’re likely to get six or seven seasons of this.”
While the thoughts of this scripted series will begin with Snoop’s childhood, it will eventually take a grittier turn.
“The ’80s era is when cocaine, drugs, violence, my teenage years and all of the things that were brought to our community by the government and the C.I.A.- the has been revealed now. When we were living in that life, in that era, we didn’t know why we were being given guns and drugs out of nowhere.”
He went on to profoundly acknowledge:
“We then became drug dealers and gang-bangers based off of tools that were given to us. They didn’t deal with no schools or no trade tech or anything. They just dropped off guns and drugs and gave us a path to destruction. And then they locked us all up.“
