Snoop Dogg/Lion on Being a Real Pimp: It Was “Never About the Money”

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Snoop Lion (aka the Artist Formerly Known as Snoop Dogg) was an actual pimp — not just for show!

Snoop actually managed a crew of prostitutes on a Playboy tour, he says. “
I had a bus follow me with ten bitches on it,” he recalls, adding that he could “f**k” and “fire” the “bitches,” and it was his “program.”

It was never about the money, Snoop said, but about his childhood dream of being a pimp.

Don’t worry — Snoop said he’d make a big show about taking the money, but he’d give it right back. To the “bitches.” Um, good job, Snoop, we guess.

"My wife had to take a backseat to this s**t," he says. However, "she stayed in my corner," he says, and "when I decided to let it go, she was still there." Snoop and his wife have remained married since 1997, and she appears to be a much more understanding partner than we would’ve been.

Do you think better or worse of Snoop knowing that he was an actual pimp?
