Snoop Dogg has signed up to serve as a special correspondent for NBC during the Olympic Games in Paris this summer.

The Drop It Like It's Hot rapper will chat with NBC Olympics host Mike Tirico and provide the U.S. network's audience with his unique take on the games in Paris. He will also explore the French city's iconic landmarks, attend Olympic events, and check in with competitors.

"I grew up watching the Olympics and am thrilled to see the incredible athletes bring their A-game to Paris. It's a celebration of skill, dedication, and the pursuit of greatness," said Snoop in a statement. "We're going to have some amazing competitions and, of course, I will be bringing that Snoop style to the mix. It's going to be the most epic Olympics ever, so stay tuned, and keep it locked.

"Let's elevate, celebrate, and make these games unforgettable, smoke the competition, and may the best shine like gold. Peace and Olympic LOVE, ya dig?"

Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, previously provided commentary on the Tokyo Games alongside Kevin Hart for NBC's streaming service Peacock in 2021.

"Snoop is already an Olympic gold medal commentator, generating tens of millions of views for his highlights commentary on Peacock of the dressage competition during the Tokyo Olympics," added Molly Solomon, Executive Producer and President, NBC Olympics Production. "That performance alone has earned Snoop a job as our Special Correspondent in Paris. We don't know what the heck is going to happen every day, but we know he will add his unique perspective to our re-imagined Olympic primetime show."

The Olympic Games take place between 26 July and 11 August.
