[ Cheers and applause ]

Conan: Do you mind if I —

Snoop: Go ahead.

Conan: That’s beautiful.

Snoop: Thank you, Conan. Thank you. How you doin’, buddy?

Conan: That is fantastic. Do you think I could pull off something like that? And be honest. Could I wear something like that? And would it work for me?

Snoop: Em?

Conan: I think you just answered my question.

[ Light laughter ]

Snoop: No it would work for you. You could pull it off. You could.

Conan: You think I could pull it off? I’d look okay?

Snoop: Sure, sure.

Conan: All right. I’m not that cool, but — you show up, you’re one of the few that shows up — you know, sometimes people show up with a posse. You showed up today with, like, 25 people.

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: That is impressive to me. Do they all have a function? Do they all have a different role? Does everyone — is everyone absolutely necessary in this posse?

Snoop: Yeah, basically. But, today I brought my family with me. I brought
my wife and my kids with me.

Conan: Oh, that’s nice too.

Snoop: Yeah. You know what I’m saying. For the holidays.

Conan: Oh, that’s really nice.

Snoop: They never seen snow. They’ve never seen what it looked like in New York —

Conan: Right, right.

Snoop: — This time of the year, so I wanted to bring them out here.

Conan: Oh, that’s very — I hope they’re not watching the show backstage.
It gets a little racy at times.

Snoop: No, they seen all that with the bear that was fondling himself.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: Wow.

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: I better have a talk with them. I’m really sorry. You should know better than to bring them here.

Snoop: It’s all right. I’m they daddy. They seen a lot of that.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: Happy christmas. Now —

[ Laughter ] Happy holidays. It’s all good. Hey, what’s up with the latest CD? Congratulations. You get two Grammy nominations for this. It’s gotta feel good. And I was looking through the liner notes. You thank your housekeeper. Your housekeeper is in the liner notes.

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: A lot of people thank their producers and stuff. I’ve never seen that before.

Snoop: Well, the maids — they keep the house clean. And they, you know,
do their thing. I gotta give them a shout out.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: That’s very nice.

[ Applause ] I think that’s a nice sentiment. Now I gotta probably put everybody. Like, you know, the person that paints my shutters and stuff at the end of credits of this show. Once you start that trend, it’s gonna spread. We’re all gonna do it.

Snoop: There ain’t nothin’ wrong with givin’ a little love.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: I like it when you say it. It sounds so cool. 4urt*u(r

great voice, you’re so laid back, you’re so calm. I’m not like that. I want to be more like you. I’m kind of jittery and all over the place.

Snoop: I got a class I teach. You can come, you know what I’m saying, be a part of the “snoop dogg cool class” and come get you sí=

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I would be your worse student.

Snoop: No, you’re all right.

Conan: I think after a day you’d be like, “o’brien, you gotta get out.” I’d be like, “what do I do now? Snoop?”

[ Mumbles ] You know.

[ Laughter ] That would be a great class to teach. Now what’s — you know, I’ve been thinking about — you’ve conquered so many worlds. You’re in movies. You of course conquered the world of rap. You’ve done it all. You’ve done a lot of television. You’re also a business man. I don’t think people realize how many products — you have snoop shoes. You can go buy Snoop shoes.

Snoop: Yeah. Doggie biscuits.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: You have clothes. Right? People can buy.

Snoop: Yeah, I sell clothing.

Conan: Phone. You can get a snoop dogg phone. Is that right?

Snoop: Yeah. By t-mobile. You’ve seen the new commercial.

Conan: Yeah.

Snoop: It’s blowing up right now.

Conan: Yeah.

Snoop: Go get you one.

Conan: You gonna hook me up with a phone?

Snoop: I’ll hook you up.

Conan: Does it — I mean, what does a snoop phone do that a regular phone doesn’t do?

Snoop: Talk to you.

Conan: Your phone actually talks to you?

Snoop: It hollers at you.

Conan: Really?

Snoop: Yeah.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: Your phone — just if I’m hanging out with the phone —

Snoop: It’ll call you.

Conan: — No one has to call me. The phone’ll just go, “conan, what’s

Snoop: “Hey, conan, pick up the phone. Somebody’s calling you.” But ain’t nobody calling you. They just, you know, want to play with you like that.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: What a terrific idea. So I can actually get a call and say, “I can’t talk to you right now. I’m talking to my phone.

Snoop: Exactly, exactly.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: That’s very cool. Now, you’re gonna come out with a barbecue. Oh, you had a — you marketed a car. You can actually buy a car.

Snoop: Yeah, “snoop deville.”

Conan: The “snoop deville”?

[ Laughter ] And now you’re coming out with a barbecue grill. Is that right?

Snoop: Yeah. “Snoop degrill.”

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I get the impression you just think of the name first.

Snoop: Yeah. And then I put the product with it. You know what I’m saying?

Conan: Right. I got to get into birth control. The “snoop depill.”

[ Laughter ] “Don’t worry. I’m on the ‘snoop depill.'” “All right then.” So what — are you worried about, ’cause george foreman — he’s got his grill. Is he — see, I don’t want george foreman to get mad at you.

Snoop: No, no. George is all right. He’s making $100 million off them
hamburger grills. I’m trying to bring some barbecue — you know ribs and wings and, you know, hot links and that type of thing.

Conan: Sure, yeah. So, you’re not getting into his business?

Snoop: No, I ain’t dealing with hamburgers. I’m dealing with ribs, wings and drummettes and things like that.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: Right. Does the grill talk to you every now and then when you get lonely?

[ Light laughter ]

Snoop: It might holler.

Conan: It might holler out to you. Yeah. “Let’s flip that over.” “Okay, grill.” You’re also — you’re gonna come out with bicycles?

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: Now, I —

Snoop: Do you want a name for that too?

Conan: Well, I —

[ Laughter ] Yeah, you gotta think about one. But, you know, I just think that — there’s a lot of things. I like you. And I buy a lot of your products. I don’t know like — what’s your bicycle like?

Snoop: It’s a three-wheel bike. It’s like a tricycle.

Conan: It’s a tricycle.

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: Is it for adults too?

Snoop: Yeah, it’s for adults. For those who forgotten how to ride a bike.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: I like that. Instead of training wheels, just go all the way back to the tricycle and put a little bell on it.

Snoop: Exactly, exactly.

Conan: You know, that’s the thing. If it’s your bike, it’ll be cool. Even if it’s a tricycle.

Snoop: Yeah. See, but that’s what it is. It’s like I’m just trying to give America a piece of Snoop Dogg. They always want some.

[ Light laughter ] So I’m trying to give them some.

Conan: That’s very nice. That’s good — the spirit of giving. I’m sure you make no money off these things. Now —

[ Laughter ] You have a line of candy coming out. But it’s — this is — it’s not —

Snoop: I gave you some and you tried it. It’s called chronic candy.

Conan: Yeah. You sent this candy over. It’s called chronic candy.

Snoop: Yeah.

Conan: And —

Snoop: Actually, I had some before I came out here.

[ Laughter ]

[ Cheers and applause ] Me and one of your staff members — I forgot his name, but we were all right.

Conan: Really? We gotta find out who that is. I bet their in the band.

[ Laughter ] I thought kendra’s performance was a little too good. But,
here’s my question — okay, kendra, you’re all righttÑ:C the chronic candy — it’s an interesting idea. It tastes — it’s supposed to taste like pot, right?

Snoop: No, it tastes like chronic.

[ Light laughter ]

Conan: Yes.

Snoop: I don’t know what pot is.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: There’s no lawyer here. You’re all right.

Snoop: All right.

Conan: There might be. All right. Well, whatever. It tastes like chronic. Ha, ha, we’re safe now.

[ Laughter ] But it doesn’t get you high. It’s perfectly safe and fun for anybody. And I thought that’s kind of a strange idea, ’cause people aren’t usually going to the chronic for the taste, the great taste.

Snoop: Yeah, but, see, what do you do when you’re on chronic? You want
sweet things, you want munchies.

Conan: Right.

Snoop: So now we pacify you by giving you chonic candy.

Conan: Right. So you’re getting the great taste of chronic.

Snoop: The less filling.

Conan: The less filling.

[ Laughter ] And you’re fine. It doesn’t get you high, so you can get right on the giant tricycle and go down the highway and you’re fine.

[ Laughter ]

Snoop: Roll on.

Conan: Right. You have literally, and I’m not exaggerating here, you have changed the way people in this country speak. You’ve got the “pher-shizzle.” I mean everybody — my mother now is saying “pher-shizzle.”

Snoop: You said it right.

Conan: What?

Snoop: You said it right.

Conan: Yeah.

Snoop: A lot of people don’t get it right. I’m proud of you, man.

Conan: Thank you very much.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Snoop: You said your moms was saying it now too?

Conan: My mom’s saying it now. Everybody’s saying it. It’s in the lingo. And also, “the oxford english dictionary,” this is true, this is not a joke. You can — “crack hoe” is in “the oxford english dictionary” now. So is “thugged out.” You are changing the way this country speaks. But you are using a word now that I don’t know what it means. I don’t understand it. You’re saying — is it “crack-a-lackin'”?

Snoop: Yeah, “crack-a-lackin’.” It’s actually the same word for what’s
crackin’, but it’s just a little bit of added preservatives that we put on the back of it.

[ Laughter ]

Conan: “Crack-a-lackin'” — what does it mean?

Snoop: It means everything is off the hook. It’s going down. It’s live.

Conan: I’m not — that doesn’t do it for me. I still don’t know what you’re talking about.

[ Laughter ]

Snoop: Hold, on, hold on, hold on.

Conan: Yeah, yeah.

Snoop: Everything’s swell.

[ Laughter and applause ]

Conan: Help me out.

Snoop: Got you, conan.

Conan: You should be translating at the U.N.

[ Laughter ] You know what, you’re one of the best people in the business
to talk to. It’s always a thrill when you come on the show. And I just want tosk you one question. You’re doing so much. You’re getting into acting now. Where do you see yourself in five years? You see yourself — what would you like to accomplish that you haven’t accomplished?

Snoop: I want to go to the — what’s the name of that awards’ show? The Oscars. I want to go to the Oscars, but I want to be invited. I don’t want to be just sitting in the crowd. I want to be invited.

Conan: You want to be nominated for an oscar?

Snoop: Exactly.

Conan: So you want to be a major motion picture star?

Snoop: Exactly.

Conan: If anyone can do it, I think you can do it.

Snoop: I want to be the black tom cruise.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Conan: That sounds swell to me. I tell you.

[ Light laughter ] “R & g,” — I think you can do it. “R & g, rhythm and gangster, the masterpiece” is in stores now. Happy holidays. Always a pleasure.
