West Coast rap veteran Snoop Dogg is giving fans a reason to get high off reading by announcing plans to drop a new book titled Rolling Words.
According to reports, the book will be comprised of smokable lyrics from his hit records.
According to psfk, the book features lyrics of the Doggfather's classic songs like 'Gin & Juice,' 'Nuthin' Like a 'G' Thang,' 'Beautiful' and 'Drop It Like It's Hot,' among others, printed on rolling paper. The book cover was made out of hemp-like material with the spine doubling as a match-striking surface. In addition, the pages are perforated for easy tearing and sharing. (Pop Crush)
Snoop took the viral route in announcing his new book's release plans.
In a hilarious video introducing the Rolling Words booklet, Snoop is sitting at a table, smiling as ever, and showing off the item like a proud papa. "The book is made of, you know, hemp materials," he says. "The cover is twine, as you can see. Real thick material right there, to get it together." The agency says the Rolling Words book is currently available only for "elite distribution" but that a limited edition may also be released online. Those attending this year's Coachella festival can sample Snoop's brand of rolling papers, which will appear as removable tabs on posters around the venue. (Fast Cocreate)
Fans will get a chance to peep the book at this month's Coachella music festival.
Snoop Dogg plans to release Rolling Words: A Smokable Songbook, which will be printed entirely on hemp seed paper, Gawker reports. Naturally, non-toxic ink is used to print Snoop's "classic" lyrics and signature phrases. The book's spine is held together with a match-striking surface. Oh, and the pages are perforated. Rolling Words is intended to promote Snoop's Kingsize Slim rolling papers. Fuse.tv reports that Coachella attendees will be among the first to try the papers from copies distributed at the festival. "What's My Name," "Drop It Like It's Hot" and "Gin and Juice" are among the song lyrics offered in the book. (Rolling Stone)
While not a book, rapper MC Gliffics recently gave SOHH reasons readers should consider buying his rolling papers.
"The papers are medical grade, in other words the quality of these premium papers are next to none. The knowledgable smoker will appreciate this. After all they are "The High Class Rolling Papers." [The papers] aren't hard to impress people and gain attention with its impressive packaging. Aside from quality, these papers have a better design then any other brand of papers out today."
