Molly Solomon, Executive Producer and President, NBC Olympics Production, noted in the release that Snoop Dogg clinched the role after becoming a fan-favorite during the Tokyo Olympics, when he and Kevin Hart commentated on the highlights for Peacock. "We don’t know what the heck is going to happen every day, but we know he will add his unique perspective to our re-imagined Olympic primetime show," she shared.

The "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper offered a taste of what's to come during the halftime of NBC's Sunday Night Football on New Year's Eve. In a brief clip of his "Snoop Year's Eve," Snoop spoke with athletes Suni Lee (gymnastics), A’ja Wilson (basketball), Jagger Eaton (skateboarding), and duo Kelly Cheng and Sara Hughes (beach volleyball) about their respective sports. 

He went on to pinky promise Cheng and Hughes that he'd be seeing them in Paris, adding an enthusiastic, "Oui, Oui!"

Snoop Dogg's Career

Though Snoop Dogg is largely known for his rap music, the Long Beach, California, native has established himself as an important figure in the wider entertainment world. He's appeared in various movies and TV shows, including Starsky & HutchBruno, and Trailer Park Boys. While those titles are geared towards adults, the rapper also started the series Doggyland, a YouTube show created with kids in mind.

On the business side of things, Snoop owns his own line of breakfast foods, an online pet store, a clothing store, and more. Notably, his entrepreneurial interests combined with his expertise in music when he acquired Death Row Records in February 2022. He said in a statement that the acquisition was an "extremely meaningful moment," as the label released his debut album Doggystyle in 1993, according to the Associated Press.

"I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value," he continued at the time.

Later in February of 2022, he released the album BODR (Bacc On Death Row).
