Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart to Host Weekly ‘Dinner Party’ Show on VH1

By | Featured | No Comments

HustleTV Entertainment News…  VH1 is uniting two of the most unlikely dinner party guests for its newest unscripted show.

The Viacom-owned cable network has gone straight to series on Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party, a weekly series in which Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg  throw a joint dinner party. The series is set to debut in the fall. HustleTV

Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will feature the lifestyle exert and Emmy-winning TV host and rapper-producer Snoop Dogg throwing a weekly dinner party in which they invite celebrity friends over for what VH1 describes as a “half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation and fun where nothing is off limits.” HustleTV

The VH1 series marks the first joint collaboration for Stewart and Snoop Dogg. The duo most recently were on ABC’s $100,000 Pyramid and have had previous shared appearances on Comedy Central’s  Justin Bieber roast as well as Stewart’s talk show.

The series is created and exec produced by Stewart and Kim Miller Olko for Sequential Brands Group, Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung for Merry Jane and SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions (Jersey Shore). VH1’s Nina L. Diaz, Trevor Rose, Paul Ricci, Fernando Mills and Paula Aranda will executive produce for the cabler.

“At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity,” Stewart said. “Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.”

Added Snoop Dogg: “My homegirl, Martha, and I have a special bond that goes back. We’re gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can’t wait for you to see how we roll together!” HustleTV

Snoop Dogg on Suge Knight: ‘I Love His Gangsta Head’

By | Interviews, Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. Snoop Dogg, one of the OG’s of the rap game, sat down with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the Drink Champs podcast on CBS Radio’s Play.it podcast network to talk about his recent work with fellow west coast rapper, The Game, to ease the tension in Los Angeles. He also shared stories about the first time he met Nas, and an early Death Row story, in which is—somewhat surprisingly—expressed affection for the label’s notorious leader, Suge Knight.

“The first song we ever worked on was ‘G Thang,’” he said of his relationship with Dr. Dre. “We did a seven day tour for The Chronic, Run-D.M.C., Geto Boys and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. And that motherf—– lasted seven days because on the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me all the Bloods and Crips that we had…every city we went to, it was a problem because they was like you can’t take all these rough, tough Bloods and Crips together.”

While the lineup and reception was great from the fans, Snoop revealed that there was plenty of resistance by law enforcement and members of the local communities. HustleTV

“By the seventh day, we was chilling with some hoes in there and Suge knocked on my door, ‘Put the TV on channel 4,’” he continued. “I put it on channel 4 and the news was outside with the police and everything ‘Yeah we’re about to come in here and get these n—-s out of here right now, we got them surrounded.’ Suge, I swear, that’s why I love his gangsta head…[he] found a way to get me, him and Dr. Dre out… We ran through a back window, ran across a freeway, got us a motherf—–‘ rental car, drove to the next state, got us a private plane and we flew the f— up out of there. G s—, that n—- Suge Knight was a cold gangster.”

Gang life was a part of many of Snoop’s stories, including the first time he met New York rapper Nas. “It’s early 90’s, like ’93 or ’94, so I’m out there hanging with my homeboys. It’s a long street so we’re out there like seven or eight deep and a long van pull up, a white van, a 15 passenger van. A n—- jump out with an all red sweatsuit with one leg of his sweatpants lifted all the way up with some boots on and he’s running across the street where I’m at,” said Snoop in laughter; Nas, unknowingly, was wearing Blood colors in a Crip neighborhood.

“So my n—-s is finna get they thing out, I’m like hold on cuz, that’s the rapper from New York named Nas,” he continued. “This the first time I meet cuz and he running to me and I shake his hand. [I said,] ‘You got on all red in a Crip neighborhood and you brought a 15 passenger van, it looks real suspicious.’ When I shake his hand, I’m like ‘Check yourself, cuz. Next time you out here, here go my number, you got to call me first.’” HustleTV

Snoop also discussed his work with The Game; the two have been in the news lately advocating for an open dialogue between those who feel victim to bad policing as well as police departments who are expressing their own opinions. The two approached L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti, and the heads of the Los Angeles Police Department to start the beginnings of the new dialogue.

“[Game’s] spirit was ‘We’re not going to go down there and smash at them but we’re going to talk to them and build a relationship,’” said Snoop. “If you don’t have any communication, the police are going to be scared when they pull up and just start throwing down when it should be about getting an understanding.”

Snoop reveals countless more stories and over shots and mary jane. To hear part one of the Drink Champs interview with Snoop Dogg, listen below. DJ Hustle

Snoop Fails on Marijuana-Related ‘Family Feud’ Question, Steve Harvey Loses His Mind

By | Featured | No Comments

HustleTV TV News…. Snoop Dogg squared off against Sugar Ray Leonard on Celebrity and the very first question was right up Snoop’s alley. Steve Harvey asked, “Name something grandma might do if she caught grandpa smoking marijuana.” Even though Sugar Ray was known for his speed, Snoop was able to hit the buzzer first.

Snoop said that grandma would hit grandpa, but Sugar Ray’s answer was higher up on the board so his family got to play first. Unfortunately for Ray, his family wasn’t able to knock out the rest of the answers so Snoop got a chance to redeem himself. The Doggfather listened to his family and answered “sell it,” which Steve thought was pretty funny coming from a man synonymous with smoking weed. But all that weed smoking didn’t help Snoop because “sell it” wasn’t on the board.

As embarrassing as that probably was for Snoop, it wasn’t as bad as one of his Fast Money answers. When Steve said “Fill in the blank, ‘Pie in the…,’ Snoop replied with “horse.” Even though Snoop got zero points for that hilarious answer, he was still able to win the $25,000 for his charity.

Celebrity Family Feud airs Sunday at 8pm on ABC.  DJ Hustle
