Snoop Dogg Comes To Day Time TV, Working On Animated Series

Hip-Hop icon, reality TV-star and Hollywood actor, Snoop Dogg has added a new title to his resume, Soap Opera maestro. The 36-year-old rapper has been tapped to remix the theme song to ABC's "One Life to Live." According to the Associated Press, Snoop will make an extended cameo on the ABC soap, performing his hit single "Sensual Seduction" and second single, "Life of Da Party" featuring Too $hort, from his ninth studio album, Ego Trippin', at the Ultra Violet club in the town of Llanview.

"I've been a fan of 'One Life to Live' since I was a baby," said Snoop in a released statement."My momma always had it on the tube in the crib growing up. The opportunity to change up the theme song and give it some of my flavor will make the show the 'Life of The Party.'"

Snoop's soap opera acting debut will air May 8 and May 9, accompanied with his version of the show's theme song.

In related news, Comedy Central has scored the DO-Double-G for a new animated series. The untitled project will take a look at the hip-hop star's life as a 15-year-old coming up in Long Beach, CA in the '80s. Executive produced by the Doggfather and Tom Lynch, the cartoon is slated to air sometime in 2009.

"We've been looking to get into business with Snoop, who's always fantastic on our roasts," Lauren Corrao, Comedy Central's president of original programming and development told "He's one of those people who truly crosses over between music and comedy."

Snoop Dogg's Ego Trippin' was released this Tuesday. The set features production from Shawty Red, DJ Quik, Teddy Riley and The Neptunes, amongst others.
