Snoop Dogg and Nelly Heading to ‘90210’
The revamped version of the iconic Aaron Spelling teen drama ‘90210‘ is about to get its taste of hip-hop in two upcoming episodes. Producers have tapped Los Angeles-native and diplomat Snoop Dogg as well as multi-platinum recording artist Nelly for cameos during the show’s upcoming season.
Details about each rapper’s storyline are still scarce, but rumor has it that Tristan Wilds’ character, Dixon, should be running into Snoop at a car wash somewhere in the area and attempting to impress him. Cori Broadus, Snoop’s daughter, will also apparently act on the show and share a scene with AnnaLynne McCord, who plays the role of Naomi.
As for Nelly, it’s been tipped that the rapper will play himself while both Wilds and Michael Steger’s character David will be involved for a video shoot on the performer’s song ‘She’s So Fly.’
Both episodes are expected to air in February, yet no concrete dates have been set as of yet. Both rappers have unique histories with acting. Snoop has starred in numerous reality programs while also serving-up cameos on everything from ‘Entourage’ and ‘Weeds’ to ‘The L Word.’ Nelly has logged time on ‘CSI: New York’ and held down a leading role in ‘The Longest Yard.’
