Snoop Dogg Seeks To Enlist Jay-Z & Wiz Khalifa For His Upcoming Reality Show

Tha Doggfather has reportedly drawn interest from MTV and E! to air his "American Idol"-like TV series.

Snoop Dogg is looking to venture into reality television competitions. According to Page Six, Tha Doggfather is currently shopping around a series to find the next big hip-hop act in the same vein as “American Idol," with a few key players in mind.

The Long Beach, California native has reportedly drawn interest from networks including E! and MTV, with hopes of enlisting Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa and an old school veteran to judge and mentor the contestants. “Snoop had wild ideas about who he can get to judge, but most are probably unlikely, including Jay,” said a source, though Wiz is supposedly interested and “will likely be involved.”

He previously announced that he was looking to launch a hip-hop reality show akin to England’s “X-Factor.” “I’m looking for a deal from a network to find America’s hottest hood artists,” he said at the time.

    I think it is a Good Idea. Us Hip Hop Artist need us a show. I'm tired of these people searching for Singers. we got enough singers. Not enough Rap artist to Keep the culture ALIVE. They Getting Locked Up,Strung Out, Or Killed. We need some more talent To bring More Talent into the game. I believe Each state needs an Artist to Step up and Contribute. Cities like mine have no open doors. We gotta leave our state just to get a Look at the Door as opposed to getting our foot in it. This would be a good Idea. I know I would do what I could to be apart of it. 100 is Fly city all Day. SNOOP ITS A GOOD IDEA. WE NEED MORE SUPORT FOR HIP HOP.

    Nice idea, but I'm so sick of these reality talent shows. I want Snoop Dogg to be better than that. And I agree with NY and JahRandom.

    Good idea but I highly doubt Jay-Z will get involved with this. Also, the judges who judge the contestants should be legends with artistic lyrical skills...that eliminates Wiz. Unless Snoops get some worthy judges, I don't see this idea being a success.

    I like the idea of the show but look at the people who would judge it Snoop, Jay-Z & Wiz all of them sold out and went pop. They probably will pick someone like Wiz causes thats whats selling right now and someone with real lyricism will get tossed aside.

    No no no Snoop. Forget this show and concentrate on getting Doggy Fizzle Televizzle back on the air, that was one of the funniest shows ever.

    download a free PDF copy of “Steven Tyler’s Secret Past” or order a paperback version at the following webpage - ( http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/BobbyFontaine ) Like Julia Holcomb, whom Steven Tyler dumped after forcing her to undergo a horrific abortion procedure, my introduction into the adult world by Steven Tyler in my early teens was full of many unbelievable twists and turns. Steven’s strange eccentricities are nothing new. Like Julia, he wanted to take me on the road with Aerosmith. He offered me a non-specific job that I had no experience for because I was just a kid. When he said I had to get my parents to turn over guardianship to him so I could legally cross state lines with the band, I turned him down. I never knew what to think about it. After reading Julia’s recently published article ( http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/the-light-of-the-world-the-steve-tyler-and-julia-holcomb-story ), I’m even more confused.
