Snoop Lion: Reformed Pimp?


Snoop Lion may have gone through several transformations but in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, he owns up to being a former pimp.

Snoop candidly discusses how he would sell off women to well-known athletes and entertainers, stocking his 2004 Playboy tour bus with ten hoes. “I could fire a bitch, fuck a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program,” he said. “City to city, titty to titty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer.”

Snoop admits he was a lenient pimp daddy though, giving the women back their bread because he wasn’t in it for the stacks. “I’d act like I’d take the money from the bitch, but I’d let her have it,” he added.

Even though he was married at the time, the rapper-turned-reggae-artist says that his life as a pimp was a dream come true. “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.”

Luckily for him, his wife of 16 years, Shante Broadus, stuck by him through it. “I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a nigga, but she stayed in my corner,” he said. “So when I decided to let it go, she was still there.”

If you can’t change the past, change the pimp.
