A Dogg's Life

Already "America's Favorite Pimp" and hotter than ever thanks to "Drop It Like It's Hot," Snoop Dogg has America at his feet. What next? Thanks to a crystal ball he found at Planet K(arnak), and some wicked potent 'dro, "TCB" was able to gaze into the Doggfather's future. Holla!

2007: Snoop receives a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Soul Plane 2. He loses, but his remake of Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me" (feat. Pharrell) wins Best Original Song.

2008: "Fo'shizzle my nizzle," defined as "an informal interjection expressing absolute certitude," first appears in the Oxford English Dictionary. Snoop accepts honorary Doctor of Linguistics diploma from Harvard University.

2009: Snoop announces his retirement from music and embarks upon a Jay-Z-like "Farewell Tour." Also like Jay-Z, he never actually retires.

2011: Snoop succeeds Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor of California; moves seat of government to the LBC. After intensive lobbying by lieutenant governors Nate Dogg and Warren G, state assembly immediately legalizes marijuana "for purposes medicinal and recreational."

2015: After rewriting the USC record book, Snoop's son Corde, aka Lil' Snoop, is chosen by the Dallas Cowboys as the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. They still can't win the Super Bowl.

Snoop Dogg plays the Austin Music Hall tonight (Thursday) with Austin's Bavu Blakes, Houston's Slim Thug, and DJ Rapid Ric.
