Since the dawn of his career, Calvin Broadus (aka Snoop Doggy Dogg, Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion, Nemo Hoes, and, of course, Uncle Snoop) has been on the forefront of the pro-cannabis movement. It’s in his music, it’s in his interviews and public appearances; hell, it’s probably in his hand right this second. Plain and simple, cannabis and the support of its legalization is part of everything he does and everywhere he goes.
So in honor of the Doggfather, I’ve done a deep dive into the world of YouTube and complied a list of some of the funniest/highest/most random/best moments in the career of Sir Snoop.
Performing ‘Murder Was the Case’
Snoop performed this song at the 1994 MTV Movie Awards. He was arrested in connection with the shooting death of gang member Philip Woldemariam in 1993 and later acquitted of this charge in 1996. That means, in the middle of a murder case, Snoop wrote and performed a song aimed at the system for trying to take him under. That’s 18 levels past ballsy; it’s simple boss shit.
Roasting Justin Bieber
If you missed the Justin Bieber roast, hosted by Kevin Hart, you missed a treat because it was hilarious. Snoop was on the panel and was, surprisingly, one of the best roasters. But in addition to his jokes, the reason why it’s one of his greatest moments is because it was on live TV and he smoked blunts THE ENTIRE TIME.
Smoking (and Rapping) on Huffington Post Live
As you can tell, Snoop is one of the few people on this planet who can smoke any time, anywhere, and it’ll be absolutely fine. No one has a problem with it, and even if they do, what are you going to say to Snoop? All you can do is try to sneak it out of his hand and out of the frame, as Marc Lamont Hill did so expertly. Snoop was the first, and I guarantee the last, person to smoke on this show.
Competing on Family Feud
Snoop was so damn high on this show that he couldn’t even think of an answer for how high he was. The question was “High in the ____?” and that man responded, “Horse.” What the hell does “high in the horse” even mean? Does anyone know?
Starring in Bones
What are you, stupid? You thought Bones wasn’t going to make the list? When it comes to acting, people usually rate Snoop’s performance in Baby Boy as his best, but that is the wrong answer. His performance in Bones is the right answer.
I mean, come on, Snoop Dogg as a zombie gangster that comes back to seek murderous revenge on those that have wronged him? We don’t talk about this enough as a community.
Doggy Fizzle Televizzle
Snoop was the original rapper/sketch-comedy artist, and this show is one of the silliest shits to ever be greenlit in Hollywood. They basically gave Snoop a mic and let him go around and terrorize humans. To this day, there’s yet to be a show as random and ridiculous as this.
Doggy Fizzle Televizzle ran from 2002-2003, and guess what happened in 2003? Chappelle’s Show debuted, that’s what. I’m not saying Dave Chappelle was inspired by Snoop’s show, but I am going to plant the seed that makes you say it.
Competing on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire
Snoop’s a legend because he went on this show and didn’t know the first question thrown at him. What’s worse, the man fell asleep at the movie that gets him $25,000. I’d bet everything I own that it was a THC-induced nap. (We’ve all been there. We know what that’s like.) Thankfully, he managed to win $50,000 for the Snoop Youth Football League.
For the love of all that is holy in this world, please give Snoop Dogg a nature show. Plizzanet Earth is a sketch/bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where Snoop narrates nature scenes, and his thoughts on the viral video of the iguana vs. snakes is the type of entertainment we need in this world.
Look through the glasses and see his eyes are almost completely closed. This has to be one of Snoop’s highest moments—he’s just up there babbling and letting loose with no filter. That Grammy speech comment is straight comedy because he’s deadass serious.
Appearing on The Price Is Right
If you’re ever on a game show and need a celebrity guest, Snoop Dogg is your guy. The man is a good luck charm, it’s quite obvious. He got Darlene some bread, he got Sidney a Harley Davidson, he got Rachel a computer. Not only that, his dance celebrations are some of the funniest shit ever—my man did the motorcycle dance better than Yung Joc.
