The heavy marijuana user hires a full-time professional to roll his joints. The employee also has free rein “to help himself whenever he likes”.

Snoop Dogg first broke the news that he employed a “PBR” with a salary somewhere between $40,000 and $50,000 a year to shock DJ Howard Stern in 2019.

In the radio chat three years ago Snoop revealed that he hired his full-time “staff member” to the actor and comedian Seth Rogan, and Sirius XM radio host Howard Stern on Stern’s uncensored show.

Rogan told Stern, “(Snoop’s) PBR can just tell if someone needs a blunt.” 

Laughing, Snoop Dogg agreed, adding about his ‘hire’, “That mother******’s timing is impeccable.

“That’s his J-O-B, his occupation. On his resume it says, ‘What do you do? I’m a blunt roller, a professional P-B-R’.

“If you’re great at something I need, I’m hiring you. Mother******’s like Lurch from The Addams Family. ‘You rang?’.”

This week super-fan UberFacts repeated the 2019 interview’s content, tweeting: “Snoop Dogg employs a full-time personal blunt roller for between $40,000 and $50,000 a year!” 

But in line with the rates of inflation, the rapper has since upped his pay beyond his original remark. And the Drop It Like Its Hot hitmaker, immediately tweeted back: “Inflation. Their salary went up!!”

Last month, Snoop revealed that he turned down a $2 million offer to perform a DJ set at a party for basketball legend Michael Jordan. He told reporters, “I was doing some other s***, I had s*** to do.”

And back in February, he announced that he had bought Death Row Records – the label that first signed him back in the early 1990s.

He said, “It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members.”

In November 2021, he announced during a podcast, “I think all of Death Row should be in my hands.”

He added, “I should be running that s***. Death Row means more to me because I helped create that.

Death Row Records released his debut album over 30 years ago. It was originally founded by Dr Dre, Suge Knight, the D.O.C. and Dick Griffey in the early 1990s.

Snoop recorded and released Doggystyle and Tha Doggfather’under Death Row Records before leaving them in 1998.

He said in a statement, “I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value.

“It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members.

“This is an extremely meaningful moment for me. I would like to personally thank the teams at Blackstone, MNRK and especially David Kestnbaum, who worked collaboratively with me over several months to make this exciting homecoming a reality. I’m looking forward to building the next chapter of Death Row Records.”

The rapper recently released Bacc On Death Row, his nineteenth album.
