1. Reincarnated (2013)

Most music fans have heard about Snoop’s conversion from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion.

2. Something From Nothing (2012)

This 2012 documentary is all about the origins of hip-hop out of impoverished city life. What started in the parks in New York City has taken over the globe and it remains a dominant cultural force.

3. Starsky & Hutch (2004)

This 2004 comedy is a remake of the old buddy cop television show. Except this time, it stars Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Snoop Dogg as the informant Huggy Bear Brown. It’s one of Snoop’s first co-starring roles in a major movie. And, of course, he knocked the silly role out of the park. Fans check out the trailer for the comedy remake film below.
