Snoop Dogg Releases Book You Can Light Up and Smoke
The book is called Rolling Words: A Smokable Songbook. Amazingly, it's made out of hemp-related materials. The Dieline [via The Daily Swarm] reports that the cover, binding and lining are fashioned out of hemp seed paper. The spine, meanwhile, is a striking surface for matches. The pages contain the lyrics to some of Snoop's best songs, which have been written in non-toxic ink.
It gets crazier: the pages are detachable, meaning that you can tear them out and use them to roll your cigarette (or joint, as the case may be). So this book actually doubles as a pack of rolling papers.
It's unclear exactly how and when this book will be released, since it was created as a promotion for Snoop Dogg's own King Size Slim Rolling Papers by agency Pereira & O'Dell. But this is obviously way too cool not to see some sort of release, so there are talks of putting it out as a limited-edition online release. Somehow we can't imagine Chapters carrying copies, but you never know.
In related news, festivalgoers at this year's Coachella will be able to sample Snoop's rolling papers by tearing off detachable tabs from posters. It's an idea that would make the herb-grinding Wavves proud.
Also, Snoop is dropping the Stoners EP on 4/20, of course.
