“The organic relationship between FaZe and Snoop has been building for years now, so we are thrilled to officially welcome FaZe Snoop to the family. As the original internet kid and first-generation gamer, Snoop has always understood the cultural connection between music, lifestyle and gaming,” said Kai Henry, Chief Strategy Officer of FaZe Clan. “Today, Snoop is a prominent voice in the emerging Web3 community and we have exciting plans to create together in the metaverse, driving new engagement opportunities for both of our fanbases.”

It will be interesting to see what this will ultimately result in but given Snoop Dogg’s unparalleled popularity within both the mainstream entertainment circles as well as gaming, there is a lot of potential. Snoop also added that this prospect was ultimately presented to him by his son, Cordell Broadus.

“It only makes sense to partner with FaZe Clan as both a team member and on the Board of Directors,” said Snoop Dogg, Entertainment Icon. “The youth identifies with their brand and that’s something my son Cordell knew, which is why he brought us together.”
