In the early 1990s, Calvin Broadus, better known by assorted aliases such as Snoop Dogg, Snoopzilla and Snoop Lion, was considered one of the most controversial/borderline dangerous rappers on the planet. Two decades later, the well-known lover of marijuana, firearms and “gin and juice” has completed the transition from gangsta rapper to White House socialite.

During a party in early December hosted by the Obama Administration at the White House to honor the 2013 Kennedy Center Honorees, Snoop-a-loop found time to chat it up with Secretary of State John Kerry.

Shoddy audio makes it difficult to determine whether they discussed the endless bloodletting in Syria, geopolitics in former Soviet states or their favorite dance floors in D.C., but the pair certainly ended the exchange with an amicable fist bump initiated by Kerry.

I hope Obama puts Snoop in charge of the NSA spying program.

Nice to know the White House has room on its guest list for a second-rate rapper...pretty demeaning to the locale just to have him there.

The current administration, with Snoop Dogg ( I thought he was Snoop Lion now ) has nothing on George Herbert Walker Bush.


That man was straight out of Compton!


Guess who's scheduled to lunch with the President of the United States today?

Compton's most notorious rap entrepreneur, Eric Wright--better known as Eazy-E, founder of the controversial rap group N.W.A.

@mrbomb13, President Reagan and Nancy had Rev. Jim Jones at the White House. That classed the place up. No word on why Kool-Aid wasn't served.

@mrbomb13 "second-rate rapper"? You never struck me as an expert on the subject.
