Snoop Dogg Is a Sushi-Rolling Pro Because He's Rolled So Many Joints

Snoop Dogg Is a Sushi-Rolling Pro Because He's Rolled So Many Joints

It's all in the "palm action," says the rapper.

Snoop Dogg is gearing up for his next hot release... but it isn't a song or album. It's a cookbook! When the Doggfather drops From Crook to Cook on October 23, he'll share his secrets for gin and juice (for shizzle), baked mac and cheese, chicken and waffles. . . and sushi?

That's right. Apparently, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto gave Snoop his first taste of sushi and even taught the rapper and gospel singer how to make temaki (a sushi hand roll) while on stage at the 2017 BottleRock Festival in Napa. It's the same fest where Snoop, lifelong friend and collaborator Warren G, and Season 6 Bravo's Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio set the new Guinness World Record for the largest (pimp) cup of gin and juice this year. 

“Rolling blunts and rolling sushi are indeed similar," Snoop wrote in From Crook to Cook. "But you need more palm action to roll sushi as opposed to finger action to roll blunts."

“It was really fun,” Morimoto told New York Post. “He was really into rolling sushi. And, of course, he’d had a lot of practice rolling other things.”
