Snoop is Hardcore
July 17, 2007 — RAPPER Felicia “Snoop” Pearson, who plays a vicious drug dealer on HBO’s “The Wire,” once served time in the shooting death of a teenager and made ends meet in jail by selling homemade sex toys. In her upcoming autobiography, “Grace After Midnight,” Pearson writes, “It ain’t like setting up a Starbucks in the mall . . . I crafted them in four sizes. Made them as real-life as possible. I knew my workmanship had to be solid or I’d get complaints.” She was paid with cans of soup, packs of cookies, candy and, once, a joint.
