VH1’s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party Season 2 (GHOST Teaser)

Just when it seemed like their relationship couldn’t get any weirder, Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart have recreated a scene from the 1990 film Ghost to promote Season 2 of VH1’s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. 

And it’s not just any scene, it’s the scene, where actress Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayze mold clay to the sounds of The Righteous Brothers’ 1965 version of “Unchained Melody” with heavy sexual overtones.

Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine ‘The Defiant Ones’ Doc to Air on HBO

HBO will premiere The Defiant Ones‘ first episode on July 9th, with subsequent episodes premiering on July 10th, 11th and 12th.

HBO has announced it will be airing a four-part documentary on Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, which chronicles their divergent roots and their unlikely partnership as well as addresses the moguls’ influence and impact on pop culture. Directed by Allen Hughes (Menace II Society), The Defiant Ones features in-depth interviews with Dre and Iovine along with many diverse artists.

The pair have worked together successfully for decades. Interscope Records, cofounded by Iovine, marketed and distributed Dre and Suge Knight’s Death Row Records in the early Nineties. By the end of that decade Iovine and Dre partnered for Dre’s own label, Aftermath. In 2006, Iovine and Dre teamed again to create Beats by Dre and they debuted their first product two years later. Apple purchased the company in 2014 for $3 billion.

The Defiant Ones has everything you expect in a great story – drama and humor, tragedy and triumph,” Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming said in a statement, via Complex. “Allen Hughes takes you on a journey through some of the most important flash points of popular culture, and I’m delighted we can bring this unforgettable saga to our viewers.”

Hughes filmed Dre and Iovine over the course of three years. In addition to their candid interviews, the documentary houses interviews with Bono, Eminem, Nas, Ice Cube, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Trent Reznor and others. It also features behind-the-scenes recording and writing sessions with Eazy-E, Stevie Nicks, N.W.A., Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and more footage that has not been previously seen.

Snoop Dogg Goes Religious For His New Album

Hip-Hop legend Snoop Dogg is planning another musical reinvention with a new gospel album.

The “Gin and Juice” hitmaker famously changed his name to the Rastafarian-inspired Snoop Lion as he launched his 2013 reggae album Reincarnated, only to ditch the moniker months later.

Now Snoop, 45, is moving in a new music direction for his 17th studio album, the follow-up to his latest release Neva Left, which has been on his mind for some time.

“It’s always been on my heart,” he explained in an interview on Beats 1 Radio’s The Pharmacy. “I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business and doing this and doing that (sic). But I just feel like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now.”

Snoop Dogg Launches A New Clothing Line

Rapper Snoop Dogg is launching a new fashion line.

The JOYRICH x Snoop Dogg collection will be released next month and Snoop will host his first-ever fashion show at Made LA in support of the launch.

The two-day Made LA event will also feature the debut of Wiz Khalifa’s capsule collection and a performance from the rapper and members of his Taylor Gang.

The “Gin and Juice” hitmaker teamed up with designers at streetwear brand JOYRICH to create the line and his son, Cordell Broadus, served as a creative director for the collection.

The 33-piece collection was inspired by the rapper’s career, music, and personal style and includes lifestyle products like pet accessories and bathrobes.

This isn’t the first fashion collection for the 45-year-old – he previously created Rich And Infamous in 2008.

WATCH TRAILER NOW – SNOOP DOGG’s NEW MOVIE “GROW HOUSE”

 

“Grow House” from Hollyweed Films stars DeRay Davis, Lil’ Duval, Martin Starr, Snoop Dogg, Faizon Love, Malcolm McDowell, and Lin Shaye as well as features a cameo by Charlemagne The God.

Check out the film’s synopsis:

There’s a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of California and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald’s. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Pat (DeRay Davis – “EMPIRE”, “21 Jump Street,” “GI Joe”) and Darius (Lil Duval – “Scary Movie 5″,”Meet the Blacks”), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. Only one problem, knowing how to smoke marijuana doesn’t mean you know how to grow it.

After taking a trip to “Dr. Doobie” (Malcolm McDowell – “Entourage,” “The Mentalist,” “Home Alone”) to become legally certified growers, they gain access to a Bel Air mansion to use as a “grow house.” Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.

MULTIHOP.TV HIGHLIGHTS Snoop Dogg Named Director of Football Recruiting for Adidas

Adidas is marketing to the cool kids. I’ve got to give it up to the team behind naming Snoop Dogg (a.k.a Calvin Broadus) Director of Football Recruiting. It’s a clever idea.

Everyone on the sports circuit knows that Snoop has served as a sports mentor who has lead his very own youth league for year.

Snoop has proven he can coach and has a vast knowledge of the sport. While this new corporate appointment may not be the most expected hire, it actually is sort of a no-brainer when you really think about it.  Snoop Dogg as Director of Football Recruiting fits right in line with the Adidas marketing philosophy.  Snoop has certainly got that football drive and his team mentality could pay off big for the brand.  It’s always nice when a passion pays off.
