Since the release of Straight Outta Compton, many other artists have been inspired to share their stories on the big screen with their own movies. Snoop Dogg, however, is not one of them. The west coast vet recently said that he's not ready for his own biopic, but he made sure to throw in a few praises for the N.W.A. film.
In recent weeks, there have been reports of a Daz Dillinger headed biopic titled Dogg Pound 4 Life, which would highlight Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur's rise to fame. Although Dillinger has spoken openly about the film, even sharing photos of a potential cast on his Instagram, Snoop recently revealed that the idea of a biopic is not one he would entertain at this point in this career. He was depicted briefly in the blockbuster film Straight Outta Compton, which he loved.
“Nah, I’m still creating the Snoop story,” he said. “It’s still happening as we speak…I don’t feel like I’m ready for that. I feel like I got more to do. And when I’m able to settle down and look at it and then say ‘Okay, I wanna document my life and my career and whatnot then I will do it.’ But right now, I’m loving the fact that N.W.A did they thing. I grew up a fan of theirs. And just letting they movie breathe. Letting the people enjoy their story and their success. That’s what it’s all about.”
Just last month, Dr. Dre's son announced that he was cast to play his father in the presumed sequel to Compton. It was also revealed that 50 Cent may have a hand in the production of the film after Universal Studios decided to pass on the idea.
While it appears fans may have to hold out on a film about Snoop Dogg, actor Marcc Rose, who played Tupac in Compton, shared that he's been working with John Singleton on a movie about that late rapper.
Eazy-E's daughter, Erin "E.B." Wright, is also slated to release a documentary about her late father. The film, A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies, will be made available to the public sometime next year.
