50 Cent pokes fun at Snoop Dogg’s smoking habits

The “Power” star made the joke while promoting his “Black Mafia Family” series.

50 Cent teased Snoop Dogg for his love of marijuana while promoting the latest episode of his new series, “Black Mafia Family.” On Sunday (Oct. 10), the executive producer of the STARZ show took to Twitter to hype fans up, but in typical 50 fashion, he found a way to tie in some trolling.

Next to an image of Pastor Swift, Snoop’s character in “BMF,” 50 wrote his own version of the Serenity Prayer. “Let us all pray,” he began. “God, grand me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can, and the WISDOM to know the difference. BECAUSE @snoopdogg is not gonna stop smoking weed. LOL BMF tonight! GreenLight Gang.”

50’s history with Snoop stems years back and includes the remix to “P.I.M.P,” so when he came across the character of Pastor Swift, he immediately thought of his friend and longtime collaborator.

“I knew he would have a field day with the character,” 50 told Billboard of the “Gin and Juice” emcee. “They initially cast me in that role, and I knew that I would be doing the marketing for ‘Raising Kanan’ – and because of my voiceovers in that show, coming directly off of that as a minister, I felt it may not connect the way I would like it to.”

He continued, “I was like, ‘Snoop would do a great job at this’– and I was able to reach out to him, and get them to commit to it because he was already a big fan of ‘Power’ and a big supporter of me publicly. He was like, ‘Yo, this is like my favorite shit.’ He would be saying that constantly.”

Landing the role, however, was not enough to get Snoop to put down his blunt. During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, 50 revealed that he attempted to get the West Coast star to stop smoking during filming. “You can’t get him to stop smoking weed. I went to the trailer. I was like, ‘Can you chill? Can you chill?’” 50 recalled. “He was like, ‘Get outta here man! No, it’s legal 50! It’s legal!”
