Snoop Dogg is busy writing his debut novel which is expected to hit the shelves this autumn.
The rap giant is penning 'Love Donâ€™t Live Here No More' which chronicles a California manâ€™s life in the hip-hop world.
Itâ€™s the first in a series of â€˜street-litâ€™ books Snoop â€“ real name Calvin Broadus â€“ is planning on writing.
Kathleen Schmidt from publishers Atria Books told The Book Standard: â€œSnoop, by nature of what he does, is a storyteller.
â€œBooks 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.â€
