Snoop Dogg feels like Popeye when he smokes

Snoop Dogg feels like Popeye when he smokes marijuana.

The hip hop star believes the illegal substance is an "attribute" to his work, and compared it to the cans of spinach which the animated character eats to become strong.

When asked whether smoking the drug is conducive to a productive career, he explained: "The weed doesn't take away; it's an attribute, an accolade. It's like Popeye. You know Popeye the Sailor Man? He'd squeeze that can and pop that spinach and go into work mode. That's what this is."

The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper continued to say his dream is to grow a gigantic version of the plant, which is why he invited a farmer, celebrated for growing the world's largest swede, backstage at one of his show's while promoting his last album.

He explained: "I got a research team that loves s**t like that.

"He can grow that sort of vegetation - I want to see if he can grow the biggest m*********ing weed plant in the world. Jack and the beanstalk, this m*********er. I want one that is growing up to space."

Despite his love of the substance, the 43-year-old star insisted he's like an "old man" when he is at home, and actually has a mundane lifestyle.

Speaking to The Observer newspaper about what he's like behind closed doors, he added: "Probably an old man. I watch the same s**t on TV. I like listening to old skool music. I like to relax. I like to just chill. I'm just like an old man, in a rocking chair, enjoying the s**t that I like to enjoy."
