Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Snoop Lion, has made enough songs about pimping to convince his fans that he might have been one. In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the West Coast rapper shares his past days as a pimp, confirming at one point he was living that life.

"I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten bitches on it. I could fire a bitch, fuck a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program. City to city, titty to titty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer."

But that’s not all. Snoop claims that professional athletes would indulge in his services. "If I'm in a city where where the Denver Broncos or the Nuggets play, I get a couple of they players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number. A lot of athletes bought pussy from me."

While most pimps would make a large profits off their clientele, Snoop was nice enough to let his girls keep the money. "I'd act like I'd take the money from the bitch, but I'd let her have it. It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp . . . As a kid I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and bitches to match. I said, 'Fuck it - I'm finna do it.'"
