Given the stellar ticket sales for the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, and news of upcoming biopics on the lives of Tupac Shakur and Master P, Snoop Dogg was recently asked if we can expect a biopic from him in the future.
When asked by HipHopWired.com about the possibility of a Snoop Dogg biopic, the Long Beach, California rapper replied with “nah,” and revealed that he’s still working on his story.
He went on to explain that he isn’t against a biopic later down the road, but as of right now, he’s proud of the success of Straight Outta Compton. The rapper also applauded actor Keith Stanfield for nailing his mannerisms in the film.
“Nah, I’m still creating the Snoop story,” Snoop Dogg said. “It’s still happening as we speak…I don’t feel like I’m ready for that. I feel like I got more to do. And when I’m able to settle down and look at it and then say ‘Okay, I wanna document my life and my career and whatnot then I will do it.’ But right now, I’m loving the fact that N.W.A did they thing. I grew up a fan of theirs. And just letting they movie breathe. Letting the people enjoy their story and their success. That’s what it’s all about.”
Snoop later spoke on the feedback for his most recent album, Bush. He referred to the project as one that was “made for grown folks,” and revealed that younger fans will eventually catch on.
“It’s one of those records that’s made for grown folks,” he said. “So, you know, sometimes it takes the kids a little bit longer to catch up…I like to make things that are timeless. That have no time limit on it. And they grow and they keep growing and growing and growing.”
