We've written plenty about the likes of Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Diddy being hip-hop stars who are also savvy marketers. But don't underestimate the marketing prowess of the Doggfather.
Last Friday on "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien," Snoop Dogg talked about plans to venture into virtually every sector. Fast food? He's got frankfurters called "Snoop Doggs." Cars? There's the Cadillac "Snoop Deville." Kitchen appliances? The barbecue Snoop de Grille. He's even working on a supermarket concept dubbed "Snoopermarkets," and, of course, he has a Snoop-branded iPhone app.
And he's not done. Asked what's next, he used the opportunity to pitch a co-branded deal with Campbell Soup Co. for "Chicken Noodle Snoop" ... "Holla at me, Campbell!"
