What comes to mind when you think of Snoop Dogg? His music? His questionable lyrics about women? Baking with Martha Stewart?
Or is it just his excessive pot use?
I can guarantee that most people will recognize Snoop for the latter. Snoop just loves the green stuff, and he is very rarely seen without a sneaky blunt in his hand. And someone else who is known for his marijuana use? Actor, Seth Rogen.
Along with Snoop, Seth is famous for his love of marijuana... But he is apparently very gifted too. Because the actor claims that Snoop Dogg said that he is "the best joint-roller" he ever met. Even for Snoop, that's a bold claim to make... Keep scrolling for the full story.
Anyone who is anyone knows who Snoop Dogg is.
via: GettyThe California-born rapper and songwriter rose to fame as one of the best-known figures in gangsta rap in the '90s and was, for many, the epitome of West Coast hip-hop culture.
And, believe it or not...Snoop isn't his real name. Would you believe it?! The rapper was actually born as Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr. on October 20, 1971. It is thought that his "Snoop Dogg" nickname came from his mother because she thought he looked like Snoopy from the Peanuts cartoon. Throughout the years, he has been known as "Snoop Doggy Dogg" and "Snoop Lion."
He was first put on the map after Dr. Dre discovered the budding young musician.He first came to the attention of producer-rapper Dr.Dre, who featured him on his single "Deep Cover" and on his landmark album The Chronic in 1992. Snoop’s prominent vocals on the hit singles "Dre Day" and "Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang" fueled his rapid ascent to stardom.
It was onwards and upwards from there.Snoop's first album, the Dre-produced Doggystyle in 1993, climbed its way to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's hip-hop and Top 200 charts. This was based, in part, on the success of the singles "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" and "Gin and Juice."
Yet, despite all his success...Snoop has never been a stranger to criticism.
Snoop's lyrics have often been slammed as sexist...And many have branded the rapper as being offensive, misogynistic, and degrading towards women.
And he has been open about his past as a pimp...In May 2013, the rapper told Rolling Stone that he had been a pimp in the early days of his career. "As a kid, I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and b*tches to match. I said, '**** it - I'm finna do it.' I put an organization together," he said. "I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten b*tches on it. I could fire a bitch, **** a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program."
Oh, and he loves pot.If it isn't his somewhat offensive music, Snoop is perhaps the most famous for his love of marijuana.
Snoop is a strong advocate for the green stuff...
Snoop is constantly high...So he is very rarely seen without a blunt in his hand.
I know what you're thinking...Rolling all those blunts must take an awfully long time... Right?
Wrong.Because Snoop's too busy being a straight-up gangster to be sat around the house rolling blunts all day, he's hired someone to do it for him.
Yep, a professional blunt roller. For Snoop Dogg.I can't make this stuff up...
Snoop opened up about his employee on The Howard Stern Show...
via: YoutubeIn which he was joined by fellow actor and pot-enthusiast, Seth Rogen.
When quizzed on why he could possibly need a blunt roller...
via: YoutubeSnoop replied, quite nonchalantly, "I don't have time." The men all burst into laughter, and Rogen then seemed to conclude that he should get himself a blunt roller too.
And Seth had some warm words for this special member of staff.
via: YoutubeRogen heaped praise on the rapper's employee - who he had encountered when hanging with Snoop in the past - and said the guy had a knack of appearing with a blunt in hand at just the right time.
Because, in case you didn't know, Seth smokes a lot of pot too...The actor has always sung his praises for the green stuff and has even written entire movies based around the use of marijuana.
And he's even started his own marijuana company...If that isn't cannabis dedication, I don't know what is.
He teamed up with fellow screenwriter, Evan Goldberg...And the pair collaborated with Canopy Growth Corp. to launch a Toronto-based Canadian cannabis brand called Houseplant.
Seth's enthusiasm is pretty admirable...I mean, this guy has pretty much dedicated his whole life's work to marijuana.
So, as you'd expect...He's become pretty good at rolling joints. Practice makes perfect, right?
Seth is the Michael Phelps of joint rolling...Well, according to his good friend Snoop, he is.
Snoop has endorsed Seth for his joint-rolling skills...
via: GettySeth appeared in an episode of Netflix’s new series Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, in which he took host David Chang on a culinary tour of his hometown, Vancouver.
Obviously, they smoked weed.
via: GettyAnd, while on the topic, Seth began bragging about his joint-rolling skills. Quite rightly so... given the praise he claims to have received from his stoner pal, Snoop.
He claimed that Snoop was blown away by his joint-rolling skills...
via: GettyAnd it's all down to his ability to roll "cross joints." "I don’t like to share compliments I’ve been given, but Snoop Dogg told me I was the best joint roller he’s ever met in his entire life." Seth explained, "Because I can roll cross joints – the cross joints in Pineapple Express, I actually rolled those. And they’re really hard to roll."
What an accomplishment!
via: GettySeth explained where he learnt to roll as he does, "I actually had a book when we were kids that was, like, 100 Creative Ways To Smoke Joints, and the cross joint was in it." Where can I buy this book?
