(The Root) — Have you ever said to yourself, "Self, I really wish there was a way that I could make myself look cartoonishly like Snoop Doggy Dogg in pictures so I can share them with my social media networks"? No? Well, if you ever change your mind, you're in luck!
Snoop, now known as Snoop Lion since his adoption of Rastafarianism, recently launched the Snoopify Sticker Camera, a photo-sharing app for Android or iOS. The app lets users take pictures and add to them a variety of Snoop-themed stickers (such as skull caps, braids and doobies). Users can then share their Snoopified pictures on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The app and most of the available stickers are free, but some premium stickers must be purchased.
The release of this app isn't the first of its kind and surely won't be the last. Just last month, musical group Major Lazer released a similar app developed by the same company responsible for Snoop's. Both he and Major Lazer join the likes of Britney Spears, Tyra Banks and Lil Wayne as celebrities with their own self-branded appls. Some, like the folks at Gizmodo, say that they're rather bizarre, but we're willing to bet that somewhere, someone is sitting on his futon in his mother's basement, happy to be putting Snoop Lion braids and Lil Wayne face tattoos on his pictures to share with the world.
