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.
