If there’s a rapper who defines what it means to “get to the bag,” Snoop Dogg would be it. The West Coast rap legend already has several business ventures that bring him money each year, and it looks like he’s adding another one to that extensive list.
On Tuesday (January 11), Billboard reported Snoop’s attorneys have applied for a federal trademark registration on the term “Snoop Doggs,” with plans to launch his very own hot dog brand under the banner.
Snoop’s possible venture into the hot dog industry is surprising since he dragged the popular food back in 2016 during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The Doggstyle rapper said he would never eat a hot dog again after watching how the sausages get made (literally) on a segment called “Hows It Mizzade.”
“This is a hot dog!?,” he asked in horror. “Oh cuz, I ain’t never eating a muthafucking hot dog! Every time I see a muthafucka with a plate with a hot dog on it, I’m knocking that shit out his hands. If that’s how they make hot dogs, I don’t want one. I’m good.”
If Snoop Dogg manages to get this business off the ground, it will be another addition to his list of products. He already has a cannabis company called Leafs By Snoop, and last year, he debuted a liquor line called Indoggo Gin.
Let’s not forget Snoop’s official cookbook From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg’s Kitchen and various cooking shows with Martha Stewart.
Even with his finger in so many pies, Uncle Snoop is still keeping busy on the music front as he recently released his Def Jam debut, The Algorithm, with plans to drop another new album in 2022. As he revealed on Instagram, the project is titled B.O.D.R and will find him linking with with legendary West Coast producer DJ Battlecat.
