Following the news that rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg has left Geffen/Interscope Records, home to the rapper for the past ten years, the rapper has now teamed with MTV for a global deal. The deal includes a weekly variety talk show filmed at Los Angeles nightclub Kress, “Dogg After Dark” which premieres Tuesday, February 17, at 8PM CST/9 p.m. ET.
