The Dogg is in the House. Following the Grammy nomination for his reggae album Reincarnated, Snoop and his family were invited to the White House for the 36th Annual Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month.

“They done let me up in here, dawg, and I got my wife and my daughter,” said Snoop in the iPhone-filmed footage. “We at the White House doing it big. Now what?”
