According to USA Today, Tha Doggfather will “explore iconic Parisian landmarks, attend Olympic competitions, and get a chance to talk with all the Olympics athletes.”

It will not be the first time that Snoop has given his insight regarding the global sporting event. In 2021, he and Kevin Hart teamed up with Peacock for a show called Olympic Highlights, in which the pair provided commentary while watching key moments from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

In anticipation of his turn as a reporter for the Olympics, Snoop sat down with various athletes set to compete in the 2024 games, including gymnast Suni Lee, Kelly Cheng, and Sarah Hughes of Beach Volleyball.

The segment, which aired on TODAY with Carson Daly, saw the Death Row Records owner quizzing Lee about a move she pulled off during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, as well as accepting an invitation to celebrate with Cheng, Hughes and the rest of the U.S. beach volleyball team if they win they gold.
