Snoop Dogg is probably as famous for his smoking habits as he is for his music. The 50-year-old rapper also smoked weed before kicking off his performance at Super Bowl LVI's halftime show. He was spotted smoking weed just before entering the stage with Dr Dre, Eminem, Mary J Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Anderson Paak.

While Snoop was getting ready to hit the stage alongside Dr Dre to kick off the performance with the rapper's 2001 single ‘The Next Episode,’ presenter Rafa El Alcalde shared a behind-the-scenes video of Snoop warming up. He appeared to be mainly hidden from view within one of the onstage house structures, but a camera recorded him flaring up before taking the stage. Taking the little puff didn't seem to affect The Doggfather's performance in the least, as he stepped onstage to coolly rap with his fellow rap legends. While Dr Dre was delivering his song from ‘California Love,’ Snoop even busted out into a few dance moves as well.

While there was some criticism of Snoop's usage of marijuana on such a significant occasion, a majority of fans rallied around him, declaring that he had a "free pass" to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. One person wrote, “Snoop has a free pass to smoke weed anywhere in the world. Literally anywhere.” Another wrote, “I’m pretty sure that Snoop Dogg smokes weed right before every single activity that he performs—including smoking weed.” “To no one’s surprise, the booth captures feed of Snoop Dogg smoking weed on the stage set just before his Super Bowl halftime show performance,” yet another person added. 












One joked, “I don’t think there’s a picture of snoop NOT smoking weed.” another one remarked, “Scientists swear weed makes you unproductive but Snoop Dogg got like 43 jobs.” Throughout the concert, Snoop wore a bright blue sweatsuit with a yellow pattern in Los Angeles Rams colors. While cheering on her husband during the big game, his wife Shante Broadus wore identical attire as well. Aside from the rapper's smoking, Eminem's Super Bowl performance was absolutely incredible, with surprise appearances by 50 Cent rapping his classic ‘In Da Club’ and Anderson Paak, who showed up unexpectedly to play drums during Eminem's incredible performance of his signature hit ‘Lose Yourself.’
