The hip hop artiste Snoop Dogg is looking to further his empire with the release of hot dogs.
The California native has filed a federal trademark for his own brand of frankfurters called Snoop Doggs.
Reports are that he plans to sell hot dogs and other types of sausages.
The rapper, born Calvin Broadus, already has a marijuana company called Leafs By Snoop, a liquor line called Indoggo Gin, and his own cookbook.
He also appears on cooking television segments with close friend Martha Stewart.
