*Snoop Dogg has been pitching TV networks on an “American Idol”-style program that would search for the next hip hop star, the New York Post reports.
“I’m looking for a deal from a network to find America’s hottest ‘hood artists’,” the paper quoted Snoop Dogg as saying.
Oxygen, Bravo and NBC aren’t interested, but E! and MTV are reportedly showing some interest, according to the paper.
Snoop says his dream panel of judges would include an old-school legend and Jay-Z, the Post reported. Jay-Z’s reps denied that the mogul had any involvement.
So far, rapper Wiz Khalifa has shown interest in the idea, the paper reported.
