Washington, D.C. – Despite Snoop Dogg’s best efforts to keep it under wraps, the West Coast rap O.G. let some interesting news slip out during a recent interview with a Washington D.C. radio station.
During a conversation with 102.3 FM host Vic Jagger, the inimitable Doggfather revealed a biopic based on his life was imminent. He already had an idea of what the film would look like.
“I’m thinking more along the lines of when you watch great shows like Narcos on Netflix,” he said. “You know, how like Narcos went from Escobar to Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico. I’m thinking like a Snoop Dogg biopic.”

**EXCLUSIVE** PT. 1: During my interview w/ @snoopdogg I asked him about doing a biopic for TV or in theaters… but he had a totally different (and very creative) idea in mind about how he wanted to give us his story… ? #VJInTheMidday #VicJagger #MajicDC #RPMS #SnoopDogg [Video @realnamelysious]
Snoop then confessed Lee Daniels and Black Panther director Ryan Coolger were on board to help Snoop’s biopic come to life.
“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. 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.”
Snoop has been portrayed in several films, including the Biggie movie Notorious and Tupac’s biopic All Eyez On Me.
This would mark the first film entirely dedicated to Snoop’s life.
