Snoop Dogg is collecting business ventures like they’re infinity stones.
According to HipHopDX, the legendary entertainer has officially launched his own ice cream brand, Dr. Bombay, which is a spin-off from the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT avatar created by Snoop after he got frustrated having to mix different brands of ice cream whenever he had the munchies.

During an interview surrounding the news of his latest endeavor, Snoop Dogg credited both Master P and Martha Stewart for not only paving the way when it comes to business but encouraging him to create a lane of his own.
Snoop Dogg's Mentors
“I’ll give two people credit for where I’m at right now,” the West Coast emcee said. “Master P showed me the business, taught me how to brand, market, and do all the things that I’m doing right now. But Martha Stewart showed me how to take it to another level.”
He continued: “She was always explaining to me about being in different department stores, having a cookbook, expanding my business, doing different things to diversify my portfolio and veritably integrate all of my businesses. So she showed me how to excel at what I’m doing.”
What’s more, Snoop Dogg compared his experience with Master P and Stewart to furthering his education and heading out into the real world for direct experience.
“Master P put me through college, but I believe that Martha gave me that hands-on experience to be able to do the things with her that were considered too big for a rapper.”
As previously reported by AfroTech, Master P has also equally expressed his admiration for Snoop Dogg’s business mindset.
“I just love everything that Snoop stands for, and he’s constantly growing as a man. I’m constantly growing as a man,” the No Limit Soldiers founder said during a 2022 interview with AfroTech. “But just being able to have somebody that you call your brother or your friend that has the same integrity that you have as far as giving back — I love that. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, but what I love about Snoop Dogg, more than anything else, is what he’s doing on that football field with the kids and giving back through the league he’s created. That’s so important because it’s changing and saving lives.”
