Rap mogul Snoop Dogg is adding more breakfast food to his growing Broadus Foods empire.

Momma Snoop's Breakfast Foods, named after his late mother, will offer branded grits, maple syrup and a pancake mix.

CEO Snoop, 50, says the goal of Broadus Foods is to "inspire economic empowerment" in the Black community.

Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus Jr., announced his new breakfast line on social media last week. He said his maple syrup pancake mix fills the void left when Aunt Jemima was removed from store shelves.

But only Aunt Jemima's face was removed from syrup bottles and pancake mix by Quaker Oats. The products are still sold in stores.

"Top of the morning," Snoop said in an Instagram video captioned:

"There was a void for our culture when they took Aunt Jemima off the shelves. We're replacing it with Momma Snoop pancake mix, syrup, grits and oatmeal, adding diversity into the grocery stores industry and creating opportunities for minority-owned food products and brands."

In 2020, Snoop Dogg launched his own wine label called "19 Crimes Cali Red." The name pays homage to the notorious Bloods street gang. The wine bottles are sold in grocery stores, including Whole Foods and Sprouts supermarket here in Georgia.

The rapper/actor-turned-entrepreneur also teamed up with businessman Master P to sell a new breakfast cereal called Snoop Loopz, which resembles a mix of Kellogg's Froot Loops and marshmallows.

"MORE Corn, MORE Flavor & MORE Marshmallows that's what separated us from the REST. If you like Fruit Loops then you will LOVE SnoopLoopz!!" said Master P in an Instagram post last month.

The 52-year-old music producer has his own brand of breakfast food in stores.

"@snoopdogg we're taking over the grocery stores," Master P said. "The more we make the more we give."

Jaime's security started pushing eager fans back away from Jamie's vehicle. But one shirtless fan decided to push back and his face met the bodyguard's fist. The fan's name is Chris and he's a musician himself, according to BACKGRID. Chris told BACKGRID's photographer that he and his partner were trying to give Jaime one of their CD's when they were pushed back.

"We’re talking to Jamie Foxx, his b*tch ass security starts pushing us," Chris said. "I said 'Dude do not touch me.' Pushed him lightly back said don’t touch me. He comes up sucker punches me in the face."

Chris added: "The only reason I didn't rock him out is because I’m gonna be the one getting the battery charge."

Chris hinted that a lawsuit may be filed. "Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen," he said.

Snoop Dogg cultivated an image as a tough gangster on his records, but he fainted when he saw his pal Tupac Shakur on his deathbed.

Snoop said Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, helped him gather the strength to say goodbye to his friend and labelmate.

Tupac was shot multiple times by a rival gang banger in Las Vegas. He died from his injuries on September 13, 1996.

During a recent interview, Snoop said he received a series of text messages from former Death Row Records founder Suge Knight telling him he and Tupac had been shot.

Suge was grazed in the head during the shooting.

Snoop said he and rapper Warren G headed to Las Vegas and stopped by Suge's home. Snoop said Suge downplayed Tupac's injuries while exaggerating his own graze wound.

"When we drive to Vegas to see Pac, we got to Suge house first, so we haven't even seen Pac," Snoop said. "We just talking to Suge, and he got the head wrapped up and he telling us what happened and, you know, 'Pac gonna be alright, he going to pull through, he got shot nine times before, he going to be alright, [they] hit me in the head.'"

When Snoop and Warren G got to the hospital, Snoop was shocked to see Tupac on his deathbed in the ICU.

"He got tubes in him and it's like, when I walked in, I could just feel like he wasn't even there, and I fainted," he said. "Then, his [mother Afeni Shakur] got me up and walked me in the bathroom and had a conversation with me about being strong. She was like, 'My baby ain't never seen you weak. I don't want you to be weak in front of him. You go in the bathroom and fix yourself up and you go back in there and you talk to him and you tell him how you feel.'"

Snoop added, "She knew how much we loved each other. So, she gave us a moment for me to say some things to him, as far as how much I love him, but I knew that that was gonna be my last time speaking with him."

Snoop Dogg is losing his hair - and his friends won't let him forget it.

Snoop is suffering from male pattern baldness, a condition that causes hair loss in the top and front of the scalp.

Snoop is contemplating wearing male wigs and extensions to cover his receding hairline, like his famous friends.

Men can be evil to each other when they see their boys going bald. Ask LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal.

Some men will accept their fate and go bald, like Jordan and O'Neal.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

But others, like LeBron, lack the confidence to go bald. So they resort to wigs or hair plugs.

Rapper Joyner Lucas posted a video Wednesday morning that shows him clowning the rap legend's receding hairline.

"When you gonna cut your hair?" Lucas asked. "When you got, like, three dreads left like Stevie [Wonder]? Are you gonna keep it? When you gonna cut that b---h off? 'Cause you know your sh*t going back, n---a. I know you be in the mirror like, 'Damn,' everyday."

Snoop laughed at Lucas's taunts, but inside he was probably crying like all men do when they are confronted with the loss of their youth.

Snoop admitted he was aware that he was going bald. He said he spoke to his wife about "going bald for a minute."

"I was saying this to my wife the other day, I might have to go baldheaded in a minute an wear wigs and sh*t. F--- it. Now everybody else wearing muthaf------ wigs," he said, referring to Jay Z, Lil Durk, Tyga, and other rappers who have resorted to male wigs and extensions to cover their baldness.

The solution to reversing hair loss for most men and women is by balancing their hormones. But some men would rather lose their hair than take female hormones.

Snoop Dogg criticized a well-known hip-hop photographer for suing rap icon Nas over a photograph the Illmatic rapper posted on social media.

Snoop posted a video asking how a photographer can sue Nas for a photo he's in. The B&W photo above, taken by old skool photog Al Pereira, shows Nas posing with Tupac at a NYC nightclub in 1993.

According to The Source, Pereira sued Nas for copyright violation for posting the photo on his social media page in 2020.

Nas is the latest celebrity to be sued for posting their own photos on their social media pages.

Actress Sofia Vergara was ordered to Pay $750 after a photographer sued her for posting a photo he took of her on her Instagram page. Vergara defaulted because she never responded to the lawsuit.

In 2017, Pereira sued Kylie and Kendall Jenner for posting photos he took of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. after they attempted to use the photos as part of a clothing line.

A former dancer has accused rapper Snoop Dogg of sexually assaulting her in a recording studio restroom in 2013. The allegation comes ahead of Snoop Dogg's headlining gig at the Super Bowl at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. on Saturday.

The woman, who is identified as Jane Doe in court documents obtained by PEOPLE, filed a lawsuit against Snoop, born Calvin Broadus Jr. and his long-term friend and hip hop personality Bishop Don Juan (real name Donald Campbell).

Sheri Determan/WENN.com

In the lawsuit filed in California on Thursday, Jane Doe – who is described as a professional dancer, host, model and actress – alleges that she was assaulted by Snoop and Don Juan in 2013.

Jane Doe alleges she and a friend went to one of the rapper's performances at Club Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, California. They went to the VIP area during the event, and "ran into" Don Juan, according to the complaint.

Don Juan, 71, allegedly invited Jane Doe to Snoop's studio, where he allegedly told her, "I can take you home or I can take you back to my place with me." The complaint alleges the woman asked to be taken home, according to PEOPLE.

The filing claims the woman fell asleep in the car and when she awoke the car was pulling up to Don Juan's home. She claims she was "exhausted" and fell back to sleep.

She then alleges she woke up to Don Juan forcing her to perform oral sex on him. Afterwards, Don Juan drove the woman to a recording studio where Snoop was taping the television series "Snoop Dogg's Double G News Network."

FayesVision/WENN.com

Jane Doe claims she felt ill and went to the restroom where she alleges Snoop entered and forced her to perform oral sex on him. She complied, allegedly, because she "was panicked and terrified" and feared for her life.

"Plaintiff found herself thinking about her job security if she displeased Defendant Snoop Dogg," according to the lawsuit.

Snoop, 50, has denied the allegations, writing on Instagram: "gold digger season is here".

On Thursday Snoop released a track that features him free-styling over the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" theme.

Snoop recently purchased the rights to Death Row Records, the notorious independent record label that helped launch his rap career under the management of incarcerated Death Row Records founder Suge Knight.

Rapper Snoop Dogg is mourning the loss of his beloved mother, Beverly Tate, who died Sunday of an undisclosed illness.

Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus Jr., paid tribute to his mother on social media on Sunday, Oct. 24.

"Thank u god for giving me an angel for a mother," he wrote in the caption of a photo of himself with his mom.

TMZ reports that Snoop's father Vernell Varnado has also confirmed the sad news.

In May, Snoop asked for prayers for his mother, who he said was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

In another post in May, he wrote: "Mama thank u for having me could of gave me up but u raised a family."

In a video on social media, Snoop said, "Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you."

"She didn't say I was wrong," Snoop said of his mother. "She just said, 'You know I raised you better than that. You're a representation of us. Every woman that ever crossed your life, you're a representation of that' – so I got it," Snoop recalled during his appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk."

Snoop Dogg announced he has hired his wife, Shante Broadus, as his new manager.

"Shante has been guiding my career behind the scenes from day one," said Snoop, who is best known for his 1993 debut album, Doggystyle.

"She has always been my final gut check with all my decisions, and I wouldn't be where I am today without her. I am grateful to have her as my official manager, helping to build the Snoop Dogg empire together."

Snoop married Shante Taylor on June 12, 1997. They share three children -- sons Corde, 26, and Cordell, 24, and daughter Cori, 21.

Snoop and Shante's marriage has endured the test of time, despite rampant rumors of cheating and outside babies. The couple nearly divorced in 2004 after she learned of his outside child, a son named Julian Corrie Broadus, who was born in 1998.

Shante's appointment as her husband's new manager comes ahead of her first book, "Paid the Cost to be the Boss Lady."

Shante issued a statement about her new gig.

"The industry at large is seeing a major shift in more representation of Black women in key executive roles. I am excited to enter this official position, helping to further expand Snoop’s wide-ranging empire. I have been by Snoop's side for over two decades, so together with the rest of the team, our goal is to strengthen Snoop’s legacy as a brand with the loyalty and trust of our guidance that has made Snoop who he is today."

Snoop Dogg's daughter, Cori Broadus, said her struggle with colorism and bullying led to a suicide attempt at age 13.

Cori, 21, said she suffered from depression and nearly took her own life after being called "fat and ugly" since she was a child.

"I grew up with two light skinned brothers... and I was the only chocolate one. I was overweight, I got lupus at six," she said.

"People used to always talk about me, 'You're fat, you're ugly, you're dark, you're this, you're that.' And I used to cry. At 13, I was ready to die. Just so sad, crying to my mom like, 'I'm so ugly, why did you have me? Why do I look like this? Why don't I look like my brothers?' It was just so many why, why, why's."

Cori said having wealthy parents and material things didn't lessen the pain she felt from being bullied about her body image disturbance issues.

"Just because you have money and just because you're able to do certain things that other people can't do, that doesn't mean you don't have a heart, a mind, a soul. I go through it just like everybody else. It don't matter cause my dad is rich, I drive a Toyota Corolla and I am content."

Mental health experts say most people who have suicidal thoughts do not go on to attempt suicide. But suicidal ideations are a risk factor for suicide.

Expressing suicidal thoughts publicly means they may already be in the planning stage, and intervention is necessary.

Snoop Dogg's daughter, Cori Broadus, opened up about having suicidal thoughts in a post on Instagram over the weekend.

Cori, 21, shared a series of photos that show her having a romantic seaside picnic with a friend.

In the post caption, Cori explained that she nearly took her own life in the last few weeks. She said her family and social media followers gave her "a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things..."

"The last few weeks my mental has not been so great at one point I tried to end my life but you & my family really give me a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things & you gotta just keep pushing through the bullshit. THANK YOU... #mentalhealthawareness."

Although Cori changed her mind about ending her life, she is not out of the woods yet.

President Donald Trump has reportedly pardoned Death Row Records co-founder Michael "Harry-O" Harris, Vladtv.com reported.

Harris is among 100 pardons and commutations set to be announced by the Trump administration before the president leaves office at 12:01 p.m. on January 20.

Harris, who was convicted in 1988 of attempted murder and narcotics distribution, has served 32 years in state and federal time for attempted murder and for his role in operating an 11-state drug trafficking ring. He will be set free immediately.

Rapper Snoop Dogg, who openly criticized Trump during his 4 years in office, worked quietly with prison reform advocates in the White House to release his friend.

"The president knows about it. I've spoken with Ivanka [Trump] and I've spoken with Jared [Kushner], and I've been told that President Trump is aware of the case and has been reviewing it," said Alice Johnson, whose life sentence for a drug conviction was commuted by Trump.

"Snoop brought this case to me, and I brought Alice Johnson on board to help it with me, and she brought it to the West Wing," said activist Weldon Angelos. "In the past, the president has given her the ability to select cases. And she doesn't get [clemency for] all of them. But with Mr. Harris, she is not taking no for an answer."

Isaac Hayes III (left) says rap legend Snoop Dogg is having second thoughts about Joe Biden.

In an interview with Rolling Out's "A.M. Wake-Up Call," Hayes discussed the abandonment of the Democratic Party by some of hip-hop's elite.

Hayes was disappointed that rap legend Ice Cube is apparently supporting President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

"I was disappointed that Ice Cube would have a conversation with the Trump campaign. I'm not opposed to anyone trying to bring about change. The thing that concerns me is the timing and who you are talking to. The result was that the Trump campaign used Ice Cube to reach out to Black men. It's not the move at the right time."

When asked what message he had for Ice Cube, Hayes said:

"My message to Ice Cube would have been that Trump is different. He's radioactive. He'll tank your business. You can't align yourself with this man when he won't denounce White supremacy. He says racist things. He stokes division between the Black community and the police. I would have told Cube that this isn’t the guy to have a conversation with. [With] everything that Trump has in his plan he can make a change now. He's dangling change like a carrot to Black people for votes. We have to remove this guy from the office and start fresh."

Hayes said he spoke with Snoop Dogg, who expressed his concern about Biden's plans for Black America.

"Snoop Dogg and I spoke, and he expressed why there is a concern with the Biden campaign," Hayes said. "I had to push back and let him understand that we're trying to get this racist demigod out of office. I know people who have stood in line for 11 hours to vote."
