Rapper-turned-reggae star Snoop Lion has revealed he really was a pimp a decade ago when he hit the road for the Playboy Tour.
The Gin and Juice hitmaker admits he put his marriage at risk to play a hooker boss for high-profile athletes and fellow stars back in 2003.
He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "I put an organisation together... I had a bus follow me with 10 b**ches on it. I could fire a b**ch, f**k a b**ch, get a new ho. It was my programme. City to city, t**ty to t**ty, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer.
"If I'm in a city where the Denver Broncos or the (Denver) Nuggets play, I get a couple of they (sic) players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number. A lot of athletes bought p**sy from me."
And Snoop admits his ladies became rich - because he gave them all the cash they earned.
He adds, "I'd act like I'd take the money from the b**ch, but I'd let her have it. It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp... As a kid, I dreamed of being a pimp; I dreamed of having cars and clothes and b**ches to match."
The rapper says his wild tour really tested his wife Shante Broadus' resolve - because she "had to take a backseat to this s**t".
He admits, "I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a n**ga (sic), but she stayed in my corner. So when I decided to let it go, she was still there."
