Big Snoop Dogg, already a Hip Hop Icon, TV-Star and Hollywood Actor, is adding two more items to his endless resume, Soap Opera maestro and actor plus and Animated Series Star. First, the rapper has been tapped to remix the theme song for ABC's "One Life To Live." According to the Associated Press, Snoop will not only create the remix to Soap Opera's theme, but also make an extended cameo on the show, performing his hit single "Sensual Seduction" plus his next single, "Life of Da Party" which features Too $hort. Both songs are from Snoop's new album, Ego Trippin', which is in stores now. "I've been a fan of 'One Life to Live' since I was a baby," said Snoop "My momma always had it on the tube in the crib growing up. The opportunity to change up the theme song and give it some of my flavor will make the show the 'Life of The Party.'"
Snoop's debut on the Soap Opera will debut on May 8th and 9th along with his version of the show's theme song.
Second, Comedy Central has announced that Snoop Dogg will soon have his own animated series on the television station. The untitled project will be centered around the Dogg Father as a 15-year-old's life in Long Beach, CA. Snoop Dogg will executive produce the show along side Tom Lynch and it will air sometime in 2009. "We've been looking to get into business with Snoop, who's always
fantastic on our roasts," Lauren Corrao (Comedy Central's president of
original programming and development) said, "He's one of
those people who truly crosses over between music and comedy."
