(TheRedWire.com) – Snoop Dogg, the renowned rapper, is set to bring his distinctive flair to the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris as he joins NBC for a series of special reports. The artist, known for his hit “Gin and Juice,” will be on the ground in Paris during the Olympic games starting in July, as announced by NBC on Sunday.
At 52 years old, Snoop Dogg, born Calvin Broadus, is set to provide coverage that spotlights the happenings in and around Paris. His role will include touring the city’s famous landmarks, attending various Olympic competitions and events, and interacting with athletes, their friends, and families. This was outlined in a recent press release.
Snoop Dogg expressed his excitement, mentioning his childhood memories of watching the Olympics and looking forward to witnessing top athletes compete in Paris. He promised to inject his unique “Snoop style” into the coverage, infusing it with his characteristic charm and energy.
This isn’t Snoop Dogg’s first foray into unconventional media roles. Previously, he gained attention for his commentary during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where he provided analysis for an equestrian event on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. This unique contribution led NBC to recruit him for the Paris Olympics.
Molly Solomon, executive producer and president of NBC Olympics production, anticipates that Snoop Dogg will add a fresh and unpredictable element to their Olympic programming, acknowledging the rapper’s ability to offer a one-of-a-kind perspective.
Snoop Dogg’s involvement in varied projects isn’t new. In 2016, he co-hosted a VH1 cooking show with Martha Stewart titled “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” showcasing his versatility beyond music.
The 2024 Paris Olympics are set to commence on July 26, with Snoop Dogg ready to be a part of this global sporting spectacle.
