Author of THA DOGGFATHER hits New York



Snoop is much less controversial than he was when I sold his autobiography written with Davin Seay THA DOGGFATHER:  The Times, Trials, And Hardcore Truths Of Snoop Dogg to William Morrow back in 1997 (Publishers Weekly: "Like the verses Snoop raps, his book comes fast and full of insight;" Kirkus: "an amusing, contemplative memoir"), and The New Yorker's Sasha Frere-Jones describes what I've always liked about his music nicely in his mention of his upcoming shows at the Brooklyn Bowl on April 19th and Irving Plaza on the 20th, writing: "few rappers have an instrument that matches Snoop’s: an easy baritone with a high ceiling that dominates any beat it faces but never tightens. Snoop’s sense of how words land is unerring, and he moves with a physical confidence that betrays a lifetime of knowing—and expecting—that he is being watched."
