Snoop Dogg may provide coverage of 2024 Paris Olympics

West Coast legend Snoop Dogg has signed up as one of the celebrities keen to provide commentary for this year’s 2024 Paris Olympics. It has now been partially confirmed that he will be covering the sporting event.

On December 31st, during the halftime of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers game, it was announced that the Doggystyle emcee is likely to be the individual providing coverage on mainstream sporting channels.  

According to multiple outlets, the Doggfather will be giving primetime insight into what’s happening at the events in Paris. His coverage will be live from Paris, and viewers will see the legend speak to the athletes, interview their families, and explore iconic Parisian landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower.

The Olympics coverage will commence on July 26th and will air on NBC and Peacock. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the lyricist revealed his passion for the most prestigious sporting event in the world.

Speaking to the magazine, Snoop (real name Calvin Broadus) stated, “I grew up watching the Olympics and am thrilled to see the incredible athletes bring their A-game to Paris. It’s a celebration of skill, dedication and the pursuit of greatness.”

He continued, “We’re going to have some amazing competitions and, of course, I will be bringing that Snoop style to the mix. It’s going to be the most epic Olympics ever, so stay tuned, and keep it locked. Let’s elevate, celebrate and make these games unforgettable, smoke the competition, and may the best shine like gold. Peace and Olympic LOVE, ya dig?”

This is a follow-up to Broadus’ coverage of the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, where the rap icon went viral for his quips and funny commentary alongside comedian Kevin Hart on Peacock.
