West Coast veteran Snoop Dogg recently talked about the success of N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton and if his own tell-all movie is coming out soon.
According to Snoop, his career is still flourishing and does not see a biopic in the near future.
“No, I’m still creating the Snoop story. It’s still happening as we speak,” Snoop said when asked about a biopic on his life. “I don’t feel like I’m ready for that. I feel like I got more to do. When I’m able to settle down and look at it and say, ‘Okay, I want to document my life and my career and what not, then I will do it but right now I’m loving the fact N.W.A. did their thing, just letting their movie breathe and letting people get their story and success, that’s what it’s all about.” (Bossip)
Recently, Snoop’s former No Limit Records boss Master P talked about putting together his own biopic flick.
“The great thing about this movie, N.W.A. is an amazing movie and I feel like at the same time, my story, I came right after them. If you go in the history books, I came right after them and taught the world how to make money. N.W.A. was probably some of the best artists in the game at the time and those same guys from Jerry Heller to Bryan Turner to Jimmy Iovine, I dealt with all of them but in a different way. I showed the game – and I told them, ‘I’m going to open the door so artists can make money and be business men after they [enter it].” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Buzz over a Master P biopic going into the works surfaced earlier this summer.
Written by Percy Miller, Parde Bridget and Wayne Conley brings alive the real story of young Percy Miller “Master P” and how he became one of the most influential names to Hip Hop. Master P broke major music barriers in the late 90’s with a 80/20 distribution deal that changed the industry of the hip hop world. Master P and his No Limit Record Company INDEPENDENTLY sold 75 million albums world wide in a time when hip-hop was dominantly run by the West and East coast. Master P gave a voice to Southern Hip Hop and exploded the culture, the soul, and the heart of what southern hip-hop is. (King of the South Movie)
