Snoop has a dirty mouth

    I'm sitting here watching Grey's thanks to Moddy, and an Orbit commercial comes on. Lo and behold -- none other than Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Dogg is on screen pimping some Wrigley's gum.

    And all I could think, while sipping a beer, is What the fuck is happening? Did I miss a fucking meeting?

    Fifteen years ago this man was a Crip in Long Beach, and now he's whoring gum in a national advertising campaign?

    Then I remembered, it all started with Andre Young. About six or seven years ago, Dr. Dre started doing some commercials for Coors Light. No biggie, I thought. It's alcohol. I suppose Phillies doesn't need to advertise for Blunts, so alcohol is the next best thing.

    When I was in eighth grade, these were two of the baddest motherfuckers on the Planet Earth, now they're sell-outs. Eric Wright must be rolling over in his grave.

    OK, time to set the record straight:

    I went to junior high with "Snoopy." Really. We had many classes together in 3 years.

    His real first name is Cordozar. Cordozar Broadus.

    I don't know where the hell this Calvin came from. I'd love for there to be a story on that.

    Orbizzle is the shizzle.

    Doesn't seem so hard when you break it down.

    Don't be so sure. Eazy-E was a proud Republican. There's a photo somewhere of him with the first President Bush.

    As bad ass as they try to be, in the end, they're all Republican whores.

    "Break it down to the very last compound,
    see how it sound,
    a little unrational,
    a lot of MC's like to use the word dramatical.
    Fresh for '88, you suckas!"

    Funny disclaimer at the bottom of Snoop's Orbit ad:

    "Chewing Orbit will not get you into Heaven," or something like that.

    Yes he does. I am not a huge fan of Jadakiss but some of my favorite rap songs are the ones where he tears 50 to shreds.

    Snoop was a bad mother fucker for a while. But he's all happy to do his schtick for Madison Avenue. As much as the shitty commercials bug me, I kind of have more of a problem with the porno movies he directed, but that's me.
    There was a pretty good AP story that surface right around the time the NFL season started last year, about how he was sponsoring a Pop Warner football team in Compton and how it became a big to-do over there. Like he started his own league because the folks who ran the league were giving him a hard time....
