Snoop Dogg biopic is on the way.
West Coast rap legend Snoop Dogg has confirmed that Lee Daniels and Ryan Coogler are on board for his upcoming biopic. The OG made the announcement during a recent interview on a radio station in Washington D.C. The Doggfather told radio host Vic Jagger that his movie is on the way and he has an idea of what the film will entail.

“I’m thinking more along the lines of when you watch great shows like Narcos on Netflix,” Snoop said. “You know, how like Narcos went from Escobar to Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico. I’m thinking like a Snoop Dogg biopic.”

If I said these names, I mean these are some real wiggathons. So you want me to tell you their names? In conjunction with Lee Daniels and Ryan Coogler.”.
Snoop Dogg character has been portrayed in many previous hit movies like Tupac’s All Eyez On Me and Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious.
