Snoop Dogg is busy writing his debut novel which is expected to hit the shelves this autumn.

The rap giant is penning 'Love Don’t Live Here No More' which chronicles a California man’s life in the hip-hop world.

It’s the first in a series of ‘street-lit’ books Snoop – real name Calvin Broadus – is planning on writing.

Kathleen Schmidt from publishers Atria Books told The Book Standard: “Snoop, by nature of what he does, is a storyteller.

“Books speak more to a female audience than does his music, so these novels give him an opportunity to show, particularly his female fans, another side.”

Issue Four of the Gigwise Print magazine is on pre-order now! Order here.
