Ready for Snoop Doggs?

Snoop Dogg

#GetSOM – @MsBoomNYC

Rap pioneer SNOOP DOGG has done it all. From cooking shows to cannabis and gin, there’s nothing that he hasn’t tried and succeeded at. So what’s next for the Long Beach rap legend? Hot Dogs! Snoop will now be hawking hotdogs which will be aptly dubbed “Snoop Doggs”.

Snoop applied last month for a U.S. Patent for a federal trademark registration for the name which he says he will use to sell franks and other types of sausages. Snoop‘s lawyer filed for the name as an “intent-to-use.” This would mean he hasn’t actually launched the hot dog brand, but wants to lock the name down for future use.

You would think that hot dogs would be the last business Snoop would involve himself in. Back in 2016, Snoop made headlines with an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  He watched a step-by-step process of how hot dogs are made. By the end of the segment, Snoop said: “This is a hot dog!? Oh cuz, I ain’t never eating a m*****f****** hot dog! If that’s how they make hot dogs, I don’t want one. I’m good.” Stay tuned for more but don’t be surprised if you see Snoop Doggs in a store near you! – Boom
