"It's not a juggle, it's just what I do," says Snoop Dogg about his amazing ability to multi-task. As of late, the rap legend has become the paragon of balance—as strange as that sounds. Right now, he's working on his next album Malice In Wonderland, he's hosting his very own variety show on MTV, Dogg After Dark, he's planning upcoming movie projects and he's got Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood on E! However, he still finds time to promote the young guns, using Dogg After Dark as a platform for new artists.
The Doggfather opened up his iTunes playlist and gave ARTISTdirect.com an exclusive look inside at what he's bumpin' right now. Of course, Snoop keeps it classy.
He laughs, "When people ask me what's in the iPod, I can never say anything new because there's never anything new! [Laughs] I'm more old school, you know what I'm saying? I'm about what happened yesterday because I am today."
Spoken like the true innovator he is!
Check out Snoop Dogg's playlist below and don't miss Dogg After Dark every Tuesday on MTV at 9pm PT/ET.
Snoop Dogg's Playlist:
1. Willie Hutch
2. Curtis Mayfield
"Willie Hutch, Curtis Mayfield—I'm listening to records of that nature right now."
3. Al Green
"I'm old school when it comes to R&B."
4. Marvin Gaye
5. George Benson
6. Soulja Boy
7. Kid Cudi
"I had Kid Cudi on the show, and I'm definitely using Dogg After Dark as a venue to break new performers."
"They're a new group from Long Beach, and they came in and did their song 'I'm in Miami Bitch.' I'm really into breaking that new talent and giving that shot to an artist who hasn't been on MTV before and hasn't been in a big environment as far as exposing what they do. I believe one of these acts on Dogg After Dark could be the next great talent."
