Has Snoop Dogg Sold Out?

Pepsi Max’s latest TV spot features dueling beverage companies in a battle for display-aisle supremacy. The commercial features a cameo from Snoop Dogg, who proudly states he’s “up to his knees in zero calories.” This spot begs the question: Has Snoop Dogg sold out?

Snoop has been a man of many endorsements over the triumphant span of his career, but at what point does enough become enough? That point is not quite as far where Snoop is concerned, and he definitely saw a handsome payoff for the endorsement. At what point do you water down your brand as an artist with kitschy endorsements? Snoop has promoted many products, from Adidas Sneakers to the Tom Tom GPS system, and it seems that throughout his career, he’s been given a pass. It would have been tough to imagine the West Coast gangsta rap artist pushing zero calorie sodas during his NWA days. Take a look at the commercial and decide for yourself.

  • 1. NWA consisted of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, Arabian Prince, Ice Cube, and MC Ren. No where in there is snoop. And he’s still with DPG.

    2. Snoop still hangs with the same people he used to. He still hangs with real people. I know people who’ve hung with him. A friend of mine in college from v13 has kicked it with him, kurupt etc.

    3. He was the main person, if not the only person who brought up the point that west coast stations need to play more west coast artists aside from his, game, kurupt etc ish. Even off the radar he supports west coast artists.

    4. Is he supposed to be keeping it real by doing henney & lac commercials? Or a ben davis & dickie ad? Maybe be the spokes person for churches chicken? I’m just sayin.

    Like nick cannon said white people write some big checks.

    He’s a smart OG. Even if he does back souljah boy lol.
