Surprising to absolutely no one, famed rapper Snoop Dogg has a full-time employee just for rolling joints.
Granted, marijuana is legally in most parts of America, so this isn’t exactly groundbreaking. It’s also Snoop Dogg, why WOULDN’T he have a professional blunt roller?
The news broke in a recent episode of Howard Stern’s radio show, where Snoop and fellow weed-smoker Seth Rogen were discussing the topic.
Snoop Dogg revealed that the employee makes a whopping $40,000-$50,000, which equates to $58,557-$73,197 AUD. For context, the minimum wage in Australia is approximately $38,000, so this lucky employee is getting paid pretty comfortably.
Honestly, the lucky staffer is living the dream. Snoop elaborated on the employment situation, stating that the employee gets free marijuana for himself, as well as other perks like free clothes that Snoop receives. Obviously, I’m not condoning smoking weed in Australia because it’s still a crime, but if you live in America, the blunt-rolling game sounds pretty damn lucrative.
The rapper also complimented his employee on his exceptional blunt-rolling skills. Snoop said the employee gives him precisely rolled blunts whenever he needs one, which I’d assume is quite often.
“That motherfucker is like Lurch from the Addams Family. ‘You rang?’” Snoop said. “That motherfucker’s timing is impeccable.”
Howard Stern, who likely doesn’t employee his own full-time blunt roller, questioned Snoop on the employment.
“That’s his J-O-B — his occupation,” Snoop said. “On his resume, it says, ‘what do you do? I’m a blunt roller. P-B-R, professional blunt roller.”
Snoop has previously claimed he smokes up to 81 joints per day in a 2012 Reddit AMA interview, so it’s probably worth his while to pay someone to roll them on his behalf.
“If you’re great at something I need, I’m hiring you,” the artist said.
