Many of you may know Snoop Dogg for his rap career, but the rapper from Long Beach, CA is also an avid gamer. Having shown a huge love for the Madden NFL franchise, Snoop also did well at the Battlefield 1 celebrity event last year. Now he plans on taking his love of gaming to the next level. Snoop Dogg, along with his media platform “Merry Jane,” has launched the Gangsta Gaming League.
This new league will involve eight of Snoop Dogg’s closest friends – Red Woods, Red Grant, JC, Tripo Loc, Lala, Shelton, Waniac, and Young Sagg – playing in a bracket-style tournament against each other in Madden 19. They will all be competing for a prize pool of $11,000 and a title of “Topp Dogg.” The winner has a chance of increasing their payout at the end by beating “the Boss Dog” himself.
Snoop Dogg promises that this league will “turn the gaming world upside down,” and with that in mind, he will be handling the commentary alongside internet personality DanRue. If that sounds entertaining, you can watch an archive of the league’s first live stream here.

Viewers will be able to participate in the action from all over the world, with events streaming on Snoop Dogg’s Twitch channel, Mixer channel, and Merry Jane’s Facebook page. You will be able to interact with Snoop himself in the stream chat, which is sure to be an amusing time and definitely different from your normal day-to-day esports viewing. Make sure to tune in and check out the GGL if you are a fan of Snoop himself or even just Madden.
