The celebrity and marijuana aficionado will be the subject of a must-see for cannabis fans

The film industry, Universal Pictures, is in development of a film about the life of American rapper, Snoop Dogg. The film marks the first project under Snoop’s newly formed Death Row Pictures. Of course, it will be a film that no cannabis enthusiast will want to miss, considering that much of the artist’s biography is based on his affinity for marijuana culture.

In what is considered to be the first definitive biopic of the pop culture icon and hip-hop star, Universal is now looking to develop a film about Snoop Dogg’s life. This audiovisual project, with Allen Hughes on board to direct and Joe Robert Cole as the screenwriter, will undoubtedly captivate many cannabis lovers. When it comes to production, Snoop and Hughes will work hand-in-hand with Sara Ramaker to produce a quality result.

“I waited a long time to put this project together because I wanted to choose the right director, the perfect writer, and the greatest movie company I could partner with that could understand the legacy that I’m trying to portray on screen, and the memory I’m trying to leave behind,” said Snoop. “It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni.”

According to the international media outlet, the production marks Snoop’s first Death Row Pictures film in addition to incorporating music that has made him known around the world. In early 2022, the cannabis culture lover purchased the Death Row brand from MNRK Music Group, controlled by private equity group Blackstone. At the moment, the amount of the transaction remains undisclosed.

Snoop has not only reigned for nearly three decades as a rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, record producer and more, but he is also an experienced entrepreneur in the cannabis industry. In fact, one of his first forays into the market came in 2015, when the rapper unveiled Leafs by Snoop. That collection included various types and flavors, chocolate bars and chewing gum, but of course, always flavored with Snoop’s favorite plant.
