To stay afloat in this day and age, it helps if you can find yourself an employer who has sold over 37 million records worldwide – a higher-up that’s more than able to shield their employees against the current cost of living crisis. And it seems like the only thing higher than the current annual inflation rate is, well, Snoop Dogg. For someone who is perenially high to the point of needing a full-time blunt roller on the payroll, Snoop Dogg is surprisingly aware of this issue and has even offered to boost his blunt roller’s salary in response to better align with the Consumer Price Index.
Back in 2019, Snoop Dogg revealed that the full-time position of being his blunt roller came with a base annual salary of approximately US$50,000 (~AU$70,000) during an episode of The Howard Stern Show. He added that the anonymous employee in question is also offered an unlimited supply of marijuana and free food and clothes in exchange for their services, as they accompany Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, AKA Tha Dogg Father, at all times of the day.
“If you’re great at something I need, I’m hiring you.”
“That motherfucker’s timing is impeccable.
In this same interview, Seth Rogen corroborated this assessment of Snoop Dogg’s blunt roller, going as far as to say they know “how to gauge the look on someone’s face when it seems like they want a blunt and if they do, he gives you one.” High praise from these two individuals. And yes, the pun is very much intended.
While many might be confused as to what Snoop Dogg’s weed guy must put on his taxes, the rap legend doubled down on the legitimacy of the position. “That’s his J-O-B—his occupation… On his resume, it says, ‘what do you do? I’m a blunt roller. PBR: Professional Blunt Roller.” You can watch the full interview below.
Now, while Snoop hasn’t exactly confirmed what his blunt roller is now earning, simply considering the current inflation rate in the US indicates a hefty raise. The current US inflation rate, for the 12 months ending in April 2022, is 8.26%. While that is slightly down compared to previous months, it still represents a 40-year high amongst the immediate cost of living crisis. Fortunately for the subject of this situation, The Dogg Father takes care of his friends.
