Rap superstar Snoop Dogg is offering up his services to take over as boss of internet search engine Yahoo! following the sudden departure of its chief executive on Tuesday (06Sep11).
The Drop It Like It's Hot hitmaker is convinced he'd be a great successor for Carol Bartz, who was ousted from the position after failing to turn around the firm's fortunes.
