Snoop Dogg Is Ready For Some Football In His New Web Series, ‘Turf’d Up’

7 January 2016 3:44 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Snoop Dogg isn’t just a rapper, actor, YouTube content creator, and Reddit expert--he’s also a big sports fan. In his newest web series, “Coach Snoop” hangs out with a selection of athletically-inclined friends and discusses football.

The series is called Turf’d Up, and it can be found on Snoop’s WestFestTV YouTube channel. In the first episode, Snoop explains why he loves the gridiron so much. “Football in particular is special,” he says, “because it teaches kids things in ways that no other sport really does, like the fact that no one player is bigger than the team.” He then welcomes his first guest, Terrell Owens, and proceeds to sit down with the former NFL wide receiver for a candid discussion about sports and pop culture.

Turf’d Up isn’t just an entertaining venture for sports fans; it also functions as promotional material for the Snoop Youth Football League charity. »
