Snoop Dogg has said that he briefly operated as a pimp 10 years ago.

The rapper, who has often used the term "pimp" to describe himself, confirmed that he took on the role literally in 2003 while on tour and also claimed that he sold girls to famous athletes. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Snoop says that the "fascination" of the lifestyle lead him to the role and praised his wife for tolerating his behaviour during the period, adding: "My wife had to take a backseat to this shit and I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a nigga."

"I put an organisation together," the rapper says in the frank interview. "I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with 10 bitches on it. I could fire a bitch, fuck a bitch, get a new ho: it was my program. City to city, titty to titty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer." Discussing his famous clients without naming names, Snoop added: "If I'm in a city where where the Denver Broncos or the Nuggets play, I get a couple of their players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number. A lot of athletes bought pussy from me."

Admitting that he was fairer with the women he hired than he told people, Snoop continues: "I'd act like I'd take the money from the bitch, but I'd let her have it. It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp. As a kid I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and bitches to match."

Snoop recently revealed more of his enterprising spirit when he launched his own branded photo sharing app, Snoopify, which is available on Android and iOS.
