Maybe you can teach an old Dogg new tricks after all.
Reportedly, rap icon and serial entrepreneur Snoop Dogg — who already sells cannabis, gin, cookbooks and other products — is planning to launch his own brand of hot dogs, weiners, sausages and frankfurters. The name? Snoop Doggs, of course. What could be more obvious that that? Well, that’s a good question — and we are more than happy to accept the ridiculous challenge in today’s episode of Sonic Reducers. Come along as Eric Alper and I weigh in on Snoop’s move, run down the list of other music stars who could cash in on their handles — come on down to Robert Plant’s Garden Center to stock up on Jesus And Mary Chains and Deadmau5 Traps, folks — and speculate on just how many of them have actually been approached with these cockamamie ideas. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
