Snoop Dogg and Smeet Can Make You a Virtual Gangsta

By Juliana Kenny January 20, 2012

I finally realized what has been missing from my life these past 25 years, why everything has seemed to be absent of something, every glass half-full. It’s because there was no social networking platform for rap fans involving virtual mansions belonging to Snoop Dogg.

But now, thanks to Smeet, this giant hole in my life has been filled. Snoop Dogg and Smeet combined forces to create a virtual hip hop world replete with a 3D mansion where fans can discuss music, view his live shows, interact with each other about rap-related news items, and hopefully, one day, virtually walk two women down a red carpet with studded leashes around their necks.

My personal fascination with what makes money these days aside, Snoop Dogg has had a prominent presence in the rap and media world for many years. Born Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. (no wonder he changed it!) Snoop now takes his social media presence to the world built on Smeet’s interactive gaming-geared social networking platform. Sebastian Funke, CEO and founder of Smeet, noted, “After taking one look at Smeet, and seeing how we integrate live music events, Snoop Dogg was hooked. He had been searching for a way to connect online with his audience and provide live content for a while, and he found the perfect platform in Smeet. We’re thrilled that Snoop Dogg decided to join Smeet.” It’s good to hear Snoop is hooked on something other than Crunk Juice, too.

What if rap isn’t your thing? (Consider yourself an estranged member of society, but whatever.) You have the next best alternative: the virtual world of Paris Hilton.

Funke added, “As more celebrities, like Snoop and Paris Hilton, enter our platform, the amount of VIPs who enter Smeet will only increase. Fans should keep an eye out for their favorite stars to make an appearance in Smeet.”

One can only hope.
