Nardwuar: Who are you?
Snoop: My name is big Snoop Dogg and I'm the king of the West Coast,
if you don't know, you do now, bow wow.
Snoop, you're here in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada,
and we'd like to give you a little welcome to our house. Here ya
go, a little present for ya. [gives Snoop a cat-like black ashtray]
Hey man, good-looking man, that's cool, the black panther. That's
what I am a black panther, can you believe it?
It's a little cat to go play with the dogs.
[laughs] I can dig it man, I got a cat at home named Frank Sinatra.
A little white cat with blue eyes, he's going to love this right
here. Now ya got a little black homeboy.
Snoop, you love Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Do you
have a house here in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada?
Um, naw, not yet, but I got a lot of friends out here that always
make it feel like home out here so I look at Vancouver as a home
away from home. People out here treat me with so much love and…just
a beautiful situation. I can breath clearly over here, you dig?
I wish you could tell that to Steve Francis. He thought the
only good thing about Vancouver was cheap CD's, what's up with that,
I mean he didn't give it a chance, you know what I'm saying? I came
out here and gave it a chance, when I shot my movie, "Bones," followed
up and shot a couple videos out here. Fell in love with the people,
the community, just the whole vibe, you know what I'm sayin'? The
only thing I got a problem with is Customs, but now they're starting
to treat me a little bit better.
Now speaking of Customs, you did this movie here, Snoop with
Tommy Chong. [hands "The Wash" Cd booklet to Snoop]
Yeah, "The Wash." Tommy Chong had a cameo in there where he actually
sold me a few things. Um, it was a pleasure to work with him because
I grew up watching Cheech and Chong.
And he lives in Vancouver too.
That's a good thing, that's my main man. Tommy Chong, if you're
watching this wassup homie?
Does Tommy still smoke?
Um, I don't know, I can't say if he does or if he didn't, you know.
You'd have to ask him that [laughs].
Snoop Dogg, the last time I was talking to you, you were really
excited to see my Redd Foxx doll, you almost tried to buy it off
me. In fact you took my Whispers record. Now I think it's totally
amazing, you have your own doll!
Ya, that's real talk, it's called Little Jr, that's the name
of my doll. You can go to vitaltoys.com, if you'd like to see it
before it comes out. It's actually a replica of Snoop Dogg. The
way I'm standin' right here is the way he's standing. He can move
like me, he can do just about anything except talk, but he can do
it all. His name is Little Jr. Hit us up at vitaltoys.com if you
wanna check it out.
Now, Snoop Dogg, some other people have done some Snoop Dogging.
Check this out, this is-[hands Snoop a picture of a Snoop Dogg puppet]
What the hell is that?
is a Snoop Dog marionette!
Oh that's Sharp. Ted [Snoop's A&R/ Marketing man ] you see this?
This is a Snoop Dogg marionette.
This is a Snoop Dogg marionette made by some dudes from the
BBC in Scotland.
Snoop: That's dope right there. Can I get one of em? I need to take
one of 'em home man, that's slick. That's dope, I like that.
Now I was curious there, Snoop, you're here in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Canada, you know, we're talking here a bit about dolls
and puppets and stuff, you're here for the Muppet Christmas!
Yeah , "A Very Special Muppet Christmas", that's what I was hired
to do today, to shoot that. I was, you know, very excited about
the opportunity to do it, you know because I grew up loving the
Muppets. I got three kids at home that still love the Muppets like
I do and it's a good thing that I can come out here and interact
with a program that's so, you know, targeted towards the kids, you
know what I mean? I love y'all.
Snoop you're so versatile! You can do porno and you can do the
Muppets, that's incredible Snoop!
That's what I say, um, my fan base is from 5 to about 65. It's a
Snoop, what's the best Muppet to work with? Who's the nicest
Muppet to work with?
Snoop: Umm…either Miss. Piggy or Kermit, one of the two, but I had
fun with all of them today. Janice, Ralph, Teeth. Um, pssssht, I
mean, I had a great time. I can't even lie to you. They really turned
me on today, man. I really fell in love with the Muppets all over
Are you going to be able to rap with the Count at all?
You never know. He's cool. The Count is real cool. He's real pimpish,
you know what I'm sayin' ? With his collar up, poppin' that collar
one time, Jack.
going back for the history of the Muppets, there is Roosevelt Franklin.
Do you remember Roosevelt Franklin?
I remember Roosevelt, he wasn't on the set today, but I sure remember
Are there any black Muppets on the set?
Well, I think I was the only black Muppet on the set, you know what
I'm sayin. I put the flavour in the game today. So, I mean, you
know, it's a good thing. The Muppets is green, orange, purple, brown,
you know, you got a whole bunch of colours, they just a special
situation, they still alive. Jim Henson, you was a genius for creating
You are Snoop Dogg in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Do
you remember Roscoe Orman , he played Gordon on Sesame Street.
Yeah he was sharp, he was real slick. I remember that. I remember
Big Bird, the Cookie Monster, you know what I'm sayin, I'm down
with all of that.
'Cause he also did the movie, "Willie Dynamite," so he was a
player and on Sesame Street, the Muppets, just like you there, Snoop.
Willie Dynamite, that's strange you said that. One of my artists,
Soopafly, his album is called Willie Dynamite. I mean, we love Willie
Dynamite, that was a helluva pimp movie. Goes down in history. Roscoe
was sharp on Sesame Street and for him to make that movie, do that,
just shows that you can do what you want to do if you're wide range
