Snoop Dogg is apparently planning to launch his own line of hot dogs — called “Snoop Doggs.”

This past December, Snoop’s attorneys applied to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a federal trademark registration on the term “Snoop Doggs,” stating that he plans to use it to sell hot dogs, various types of sausage and other products, according to Billboard.

Attorneys for the 50-year-old rapper — who swore during a 2016 appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he would “never eating a mother f****** hot dog!” — made the filing as a so-called intent-to-use application. That means Snoop hasn’t launched a brand yet, but has a serious intent to do so and wants to lock down the name ahead of time.

Of course, if history is any indication, this whole “Snoop Doggs” idea may not amount to anything. his 2011 “Snoop Scoops” ice cream brand idea never came to fruition.
