To be completely honest, a Snoop Dogg movie doesn't seem farfetched given how much the legendary rapper has been able to accomplish throughout his career in the entertainment industry. Although we may not see Snoop's life story depicted in multiple films, at least one of the major moments in his life could be covered in a biopic. On Monday, he spoke with the Associated Press about whether or not there is an actor out there that can really encapsulate the Doggfather's persona on the big screen.

"There's so many dope actors that have graced the screen and there's so many dope actors that have yet to grace the screen, Snoop tells the AP. " I don't know who could play me. It would have to be someone who could win me over."

He further goes on to say that an actor like Jamie Foxx who has a great range of comedy and drama acting credits—and was able to portray Ray Charles— could be a good fit.

"When I think of someone playing you, I think of how Jamie Foxx played Ray," he said. "That was like spot on. So I would have to find me a Jamie Foxx or someone that could actually become Snoop Dogg on screen and give me all of that element. And I don't know if that person is out there or has yet to be discovered. But when I get to that point, I'ma find him."

It is quite evident that Snoop is on the lookout for someone who can portray his likeness, even if it is somebody who isn't that prominent in Hollywood. When it comes to seeing when the biopic could come to fruition, that is still up in the air. In 2018, Snoop did tease working with Lee Daniels and Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler to develop his idea for a movie, further exploring the potential to flesh out his life in a miniseries. Should this happen, it could prove to be a very interesting show for fans.

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
