Rapper-turned-reggae star Snoop Lion is hoping to team up with Eddie Murphy for a series of movie and TV-related projects after staging a high-powered meeting with the Shrek star.

The Drop It Like It's Hot hitmaker reveals he recently got together with the reclusive movie star and chatted to him about a series of ideas he would like to develop with Murphy.

Snoop tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I'm gonna holler at him, see if I can get some paper (money) to do some of these movies. I got a lot of ideas and I'm tired of paying for them myself. He ain't making fresh, dynamic s**t. He only do a movie once a year for the white world.

"I'm talking about real n**ga s**t that'll keep him connected. Real boss s**t."
