50 Cent shared that he tried to get Snoop Dogg to stop smoking weed in his role on his BMF series.
“He did his thing. You can’t get him to stop smoking weed. I went to the trailer. I was like, ‘Can you chill? Can you chill?’ He was like, ‘Get outta here man! No, it’s legal 50! It’s legal!” he told Jimmy Kimmel.
50 told Billboard why he cast Snoop:
“With Snoop, I knew he would have a field day with the character. They initially cast me in that role, and I knew that I would be doing the marketing for Raising Kanan — and because of my voiceovers in that show, coming directly off of that as a minister,” he said.
“I was like, “Snoop would do a great job at this” — and I was able to reach out to him, and get them to commit to it because he was already a big fan of Power and a big supporter of me publicly. He was like, ‘Yo, this is like my favorite s–t.’ He would be saying that constantly. When I came around to the casting for the actual show, he was excited that I had the luxury of directing it.”
