Leave it to Snoop Dogg to come up with another way to bring in the green. The “Gin & Juice” rapper and entrepreneur’s latest gambit — “Rolling Words: A Smokable Songbook” — is a book of the hip-hop star’s lyrics, printed on rolling papers. Not only are the words to his classic songs “Gin & Juice,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” printed out on the paper, the book comes with a strike board on the spine, so users can light matches off it. The book is made of hemp and hemp-related materials with nontoxic ink. “Always remember, you can roll with an expert, you can roll with Snoop,” he says in the video. The item is a companion piece to the 40-year-old rapper’s Snoop Dogg King Size Slim Rolling Papers. Limited editions of the book will be distributed at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., this month, according to News One.
Snoop, aka Calvin Broadus, is scheduled to co-headline the event with “‘G’ Thang” collaborator Dr. Dre. Snoop continues to make weed-smoking an intergral part of his life and identity, despite his constant run-ins with the law. In January, the rapper was arrested after a drug-sniffing dog alerted border patrol agents to a possible hit during a checkpoint stop in Sierra Blanca, a small town in West Texas. The cannabis-toting rapper has landed behind bars. He was busted for marijuana possession in 1998, 2001, twice in 2006 and 2007, among his numerous other arrests. Since making his debut on the music scene in 1992, Snoop has shown time and again, there’s no venture too bizarre for him to get involved with. Snoop raised eyebrows last year for endorsing Colt 45 Blast, a fruity booze beverage, similar to much-publicized Four Loko and Jooce. Critics say these brightly colored drinks target underage drinkers. His endorsements include: gum, Chronic Candy (sweets that taste like marijuana), pet accessories and Norton antivirus computer software. He also produced a hardcore pornographic film called “Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle” in 2001.
