Snoop Dogg will star in a stage show based on his life. It’s called ‘Redemption of a Dogg’ and will also star Tamar Braxton.
It’s written, directed, and produced by award-winning playwright Je’Caryous Johnson, who’s plays have grossed more than $85 million. His film credits include ‘Friends and Lovers,’ ‘The Maintenance Man’ and ‘Whatever She Wants.’
The show also marks the 25th anniversary of the rapper’s debut album, Doggystyle. According to a press release, the play is described as an “urban theatre” experience that tells the story of “a multi-faceted character who is a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God.
“Redemption of a Dogg examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family.” It’s also reported that a string of Snoop’s biggest hits will also feature in the production.

“I’m excited to link up with my guy Je’Caryous Johnson on Redemption of a Dogg the stage play,” Snoop said in the release. “Please believe you’ve never seen urban theatre like this! With my flavor and his expertise, we’re gonna bring the people an unmissable show. I can’t wait for everyone out there to see it!”
