The family that smokes together stays together? So it would seem in the house of Snoop Dogg, where the hip-hop legend not only tokes with his eldest son Corde (nicknamed “Spank”), he’s helping the 18-year-old launch a career as Spanky Danky, whose songs have such titles as “Rollin, Rollin, Rollin … Stoned,” “California Gs” and “Commemoration of Vaporization.”
“What better way to [learn] than from the master?” Snoop tells The Hollywood Reporter in a new cover story. He’s referring specifically to photos posted on Twitter showing son lighting father’s 2-foot-bong. Before Spank pressed send, Snoop didn’t flinch.
“My kids can do whatever the hell they want,” he explains of his parenting philosophy. “For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf—ers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me.”
Bet lots of youth wish they have a father like that.
