Snoop Dogg is working with television veteran Ron Reo on a traditional family sitcom for Warner Bros. TV. The rapper will play the patriarch of a family in the show, which may be loosely based on his real life, which was portrayed in the E! reality show Snoop Dogg's Father Hood. Snoop previously worked with Reo in a story arc on the Fox sitcom Brothers.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
