Snoop Dogg is hosting a web series about the history of ice hockey

Engrave that cup with a D O double G

Snoop Dogg is teaming up with the North American National Hockey League to host a new YouTube series about the history of the sport.

Yesterday saw the release of the first tutorial, in which the rapper discusses the history of the Stanley Cup, with playoffs for the title starting tonight.

He discusses the several superstitions around the cup, including the idea that it can only be touched by its winners.

“There’s only one way to hoist it – you’ve got to win it,” says Snoop. Watch below:

He adds: “The champs don’t just get to photobomb the cup. They get their names with it.

“If the engraver is listening, it spells D-O-G-G, capital letters.”

Snoop has rebranded himself as “The Professor’s Professor, Dogg Cherry” for the series, in homage to the Canadian ice hockey commentator Don Cherry.

Earlier this week, Snoop Dogg compared Donald Trump to the devil during an interview promoting his new gospel album, ‘Bible of Love’.

Asked to describe what the devil is like, he replied: “The President.”

He then reflected on his desire to release something positive amid global difficulties.

“The world that we live in now, with all the negativity and violence, I just wanted to make something that represented peace, love and happiness,” he said.

“I always referred to my saviour Jesus Christ on most of the records that I spoke on; I always had moments that I would reflect on that and let people know that I was a born again Christian. So it was just time for me to actually put my money where my mouth was.”
