    FOH! No disprespect to Snoop, but is Hollywood that desperate for talent? Its mad niggas who can do comedy shows looking for legitimate work. Stick to the *ahem* music D-O-double-G. That “televizzle” shit was not what’s up.

    “Malice in Wonderland”, lol. Sounds like he graduated to ecstacy &/or shrooms.

      “LET’S JUST SAY HE WONT BE PICKING UP ANY OSCARS SOON!”

      Hell, that dude will be lucky if a nigga NAMED Oscar watches the show. I saw that “Snoop Dizzle” twice. The second time, I purposely got as high as I could, thinking he was aiming @ the weed addicts. No fucking dice.

      Clothes, busted mission. TV, waste of time. Wtf ever happened to him coaching? Smells like mid-life crisis to me…………

        I did the same thing with my girl watching that “Doggy Fizzle..”.

        And Doggy fizzled!

        I can’t even watch dude on TV.

          LOL SAYING “TOO $HORT IS THE KING OF A, B, C, RAPPERS” IS GIVING HIM TOO MUCH CREDIT. HALF THE TIME HE DOESN’T EVEN RHYME. STILL HE’S ONE OF MY FAVORITES SINCE 75 GIRLS & BORN TO MACK

    yo… since when does MTV put albums out? That is going to be some sure fire commercial shizzle…

  • Enlightened

    Fuck what niggas talking about. The first few episodes of Doggy Fizzle Televizzle was funny as hell!
    After that, he started running dry on material, but if they keep good writers, Snoop definitely got the presence to pull it off.

  • NotoriousRambo

    THAT SHOW WAS FUNNY BACK IN THE DAY. AS FOR SNOOP WORKING WITH DRE AGAIN YOU KNOW THATS GOING TO BE MAGIC THEY SHOULD MAKE IT A COLLABO ALBUM NOTHING BUT DRE & SNOOP. I KNOW DETOX IS GOING TO HAVE A COUPLE JOINTS LIKE THAT ATLEAST LIKE THE CHRONIC ALBUMS.
