The ‘Doggfather’ Credits His White House Invitation to Michelle Obama

The New York Times Magazine talked to Snoop Dogg this week, and ended the interview by asking the rapper about his 2013 trip to the White House — a momentous occasion that becomes all the more extraordinary every time a new detail is revealed. In 2014, Snoop Dogg made the unproven claim that he smoked weed in one of the executive mansion’s bathrooms. (“Look, when I do the No. 2, I  usually, you know, have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right.”) This week, he wondered why it “took so [expletive] long” for the White House to invite him in the first place. He has a theory, though, about why he was finally told to come over. “I think his wife was like, ‘It’s time to get the Dogg­father in here.’”
