Legendary Rapper Snoop Dogg Wants To Become A Professional Sports Commentator
By Stewart Perrie
It looks like Snoop Dogg might have found a new calling in life. The rapper has been known for spitting some of the biggest and best lyrics in the game, however he's recently won fans all over the world for his commentary.
The Doggfather was offering his 'expert' analysis during the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr fight over the weekend and everyone absolutely loved it.
While the two veteran fighters slugged it out in the ring, Snoop described the two former world champions' fight as such: "This s*** like two of my uncles fighting at the BBQ - 'Get your uncle outta there, get him out!'
"Meet me in the back, I'm tired of this s***, come on!"
"Get up in there, Roy! S***, in and out!"
Since winning praise from celebrities and regular folk, Snoop has indicated he's open to further work as a sports commentator, sharing fans' posts calling on the big broadcasters to sign him.
He shared a tweet from writer and entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David on his Instagram page which calls for Snoop to be signed to a multi-year contract with the likes of ESPN, Fox Sports or TNT's coverage of the NBA for a casual $15 million over three years.
Snoop's industry mates like Timbaland and Jamie Foxx both commented in support of the idea.

He also shared another post from a fan on his Instagram which called for a 'petition to get Snoop an NBA commentator contract'.
Snoop certainly seemed to have people watching from home lapping up his analysis.
One wrote: "Are y'all listening to my man @SnoopDogg call this fight. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I'm loving this. Snoop's the most entertaining part of this fight. He's doing fantastic."
Another said: "The MVP of tonight gotta be SNOOP DOGG."

As for the fight itself, it was scored by the unofficial panel as a draw after eight two-minute rounds. While 54-year-old Tyson was the winner on many observers' scorecards, the ringside judges deemed that 51-year-old Jones Jr had done enough for a share of the spoils.
Elsewhere, YouTuber Jake Paul delivered a savage knockout on former NBA star Nate Robinson, which caused some from within the boxing world to suggest that maybe celebrity boxing isn't the best idea.
Seven-weight world champion Amanda Serrano argued that someone inexperienced could get 'really hurt' after Robinson required medical attention in the ring following the stoppage.
However, as Robinson lay prostrate on the canvas, Snoop Dogg said: "He'll be alright, he's from the hood. Nate's gonna shake that off."
