As hip-hop moves into its fourth decade, the stars of its golden age are now grown with families of their own. Snoop Dogg, aka Snoop Lion, aka Calvin Broadus, is no exception. ESPN recently announced a five-episode documentary series starring the rapper and his 17-year-old son, Cordell, reports Hip-Hop Wired.

Being on ESPN, you can probably deduce that Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream is not about music, but sports — specifically Cordell’s recruitment to play football by top college programs including Notre Dame, LSU, Baylor and Snoop’s fave, USC.
ESPN’s press release on the show reads in part:
Over 10 years ago, Snoop started the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) because of his passion for coaching kids. The League has provided thousands of young boys and girls a positive environment to learn skills for life – championing kids to be better citizens on and off the field. Cordell began his football career under his father’s guidance as a player in the SFYL.
With exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Snoop and Cordell as he prepares for the next level, the half-hour show will take viewers into the Broadus home for family dinners, on Snoop’s tour bus as he breaks down game film and on the sidelines for each game of Cordell’s senior season.
“People will see a very different side of Snoop. They’ll see a man navigating the line between father and friend,” executive producer Rory Karpf is quoted as saying. “They’ll see someone whose interest in his son’s life reflects what he himself never had. Above all, they’ll see a father extraordinarily proud of his son.”
