Tonight VH1 continues its week-long paean to hip-hop with a series of rap-related programs (see the schedule here). Tonight we’re most excited about Rags to Riches: Snoop Dogg, in which the Doggfather, one of this year’s Hip-Hop Honors honorees, explains how he went from East Long Beach, California, to owning a fleet of luxury cars. Fans of Porsches and fans of Tia Carrera can unite over Snoop’s clever wordplay. (You know, there’s the Porsche Carrera, and then there’s the Wayne’s World/Curb Your Enthusiasm star. OK, sure, it’s a bad pun, but a) Snoop’s wealthy enough to make it, which means it’s just weird enough to be interesting, and b) it is true that the Porsche Carrera and Tia Carrera share a name.) As the man says, his rides don’t need to be pimped because he already is a pimp. And that, friends, is the truth. Watch it tonight at 11 p.m. (EST) on VH1.
