Snoop Lion Admits He Was an Actual Pimp

What!?

Snoop Lion reveals that once was an ACTUAL PIMP and that he shared his women with athletes and entertainers on the road.

"I put an organization together," theReincarnated rapper tellsRolling Stone's contributing editor Jonah Weiner in the new issue ofRolling Stone. "I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten b*tches on it. I could fire a bitch, f--k 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."

The rapper said his clientele consisted of a number of high-profile athletes.

Snoop Lion also went on to say that his decision to get involved prostitution came from a "fascination," not a desire to make money.

"I'd act like I'd take the money from the b*tch, but I'd let her have it," he said of how he ran his organization. "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. I said, 'F--k it -- I'm finna do it."

The "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" rapper said his clientele consisted of a number of high-profile athletes (whom he declined to name), who would "come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever [woman] you like comes with a number."

Snoop Lion has been married to high school sweetheart Shante Broadus since 1997, and the couple have three children together: CoriCorde, and Cordell, aged between 12 and 18. His wife "had to take a backseat" to his business, the rapper admitted, and noted, "I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a n---a, but she stayed in my corner. So when I decided to let it go, she was still there."
