Snoop Dogg says he's looking to invest in Atlantic City real estate


ATLANTIC CITY — Rapper, actor, game show host and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg is looking to invest in real estate in the resort, he told Mayor Marty Small Sr.

“I’m coming to the city, I’m coming to the state,” the “Drop It like It’s Hot” performer said during a recent video call with Small.

“Hold on, hold on, hold on,” Small interrupted during the video of the conversation posted on his Facebook page.

“We’re looking to try to invest in some real estate, do some big things out there with you,” said the man born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. “And I just wanted to get acquainted with you, let you know, hear it from me face to face, that we will be coming to a city near you.”

The city’s property value has been declining for a decade, from $20 billion in 2010 to $2.5 billion last year, state data show. Officials have held at least five auctions of municipal-owned lots; a July auction netted the city nearly $1.7 million.

Snoop said he wanted to connect Small with Inglewood, California, Mayor James T. Butts Jr., to start a coalition of Black mayors, and plans to come to the state when recreational marijuana is legalized. He wished Small “success on your new term, because I know you’re going to get it again,” he said.

Small thanked Cesar Piña, a real estate developer, for making the connection, according to the post.
