Snoop Dogg: Bored of hip-hop?

Rapper declares he wants to rock instead...

Snoop Dogg has announced he is bored with hip-hop and would rather concentrate on rocking out in 2008.

Speaking to MTV News, the rapper declared he was bored with the genre, and he’s already made a list of the big names he’d like to work with.

“I want to work with Madonna, Bono or Mick Jagger,” he demanded. “I’m on some rock shit, man! Snoop Dogg, man!”

He added: “Rappers don’t really move me too much. They can’t do what I did. I’m also trying to get down with something that’s outta the box and bigger than me.”
