Snoop Dogg took it to heart when he was asked to "Come on down!"
The rapper appeared on The Price is Right on Monday (Jan. 2), as the show kicked off a week of celebs appearing for charity. Snoop was playing for his youth football league and he banked $72,000 for the cause. Nice work, Snoop!
"The Snoop Youth Football League is something that we created over seven years ago and it was put together to try to help the inner city kids with all the gang violence and drugs and negativity," the weed lover said. "We wanted to put something in the community that would be positive, they could do that could be here 20 years from now. A football league is very productive and its positive and it keeps a lot of kids out of trouble and it shows them how to organize and work together."
Snoop also has a long, deep love for the game show once hosted by Bob Barker. He used to watch it when he missed school as a kid. Didn't we all? He said, "The feeling was still here. It's like it never left."
