Snoop Dogg wants to launch rap’s answer to ‘American Idol’
New York: Rapper Snoop Dogg has revealed that he wants to launch a rap show that is exactly like ‘American Idol’.
According to sources, 39-year-old Snoop is touting that the show could be as popular as Fox’s ‘American Idol’, but TV execs are not convinced, and only E! and MTV have shown interest.
He’s also working on wrangling a celebrity panel of hip-hop icons to judge and mentor young acts as they compete.
“He wants to bring in an old-school legend, and he wants to get Jay-Z,” the New York Post quoted an insider as saying.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa has shown interest and will likely be involved.
“Snoop has wild ideas about who he can get to judge, but most are probably unlikely, including Jay,” a source said.
