Snoop Dogg and Family Visit the White House

Snoop Dogg and family

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.

A tuxedo-clad Snoop, along with his wife Shante Broadus and daughter Cori B., met President Obama off-camera and shared a laugh and a fist bump with Secretary of State John Kerry.

“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?”

It was a full circle moment for Snoop. In his Reincarnated film, he says, “I’m never able to perform in situations where I’d love to because I don’t have those kinds of songs. My songs are too hard. I know Obama wants me to come to the White House, but what can I perform?”

Not only did he visit the White House, he also performed a live tribute to Herbie Hancock during the Kennedy Center Honors, which will air tonight on CBS.
