Snoop Dogg Has Launched 'Doggyland,' the Hip Hop-Inspired YouTube Channel That Teaches Social-Emotional Learning

The Grammy nominated artist is committed to creating positive and supportive spaces for all kids.

You may know Snoop Dogg as a Grammy nominated rapper/artist, or Martha Stewart's bestie but our babies will know him as Bow Wizzle. The OG West Coast rapper is coming to YouTube and YouTube kids in a brand new animated series that will have your whole family singing and dancing around the house.

The rapper officially released Doggyland - Kids Songs & Nursery Rhymes, on both streaming platforms. "Presenting 2 u my new kids show @doggyland_kids Where they can sing, dance n learn. Out now on Youtube & YouTube Kids!" he shared via Twitter along with a video introducing the show and its main characters.

"I've always wanted to create a kid-friendly series that lets kids be kids and is truly representative of the Culture with everything from the music to the characters," he said in a press release about the series. "When I started to build my team, it was only right to partner with Claude, who created the iconic series, Hip Hop Harry, which built the blueprint to diverse kids programming, and October London, a talented singer and writer."

Be still my 90s kid heart! Doggyland, which is geared towards children ranging from toddlers to 8 years old, focuses on teaching social, emotional, and cognitive skills. The family-friendly show encourages kids and parents to come together to learn new skills, as well as spread joy and love to one another. Bow Wizzle (voiced by Snoop Dogg) leads the cast of colorful and vibrant characters which, according to the Doggyland website, were thoughtfully designed that way aiming to promote diversity and inclusion in a way that kids would be able to grasp.

So while parents will be led down the long halls of nostalgia while watching (and singing along to) Doggyland with our kids, our babies will be learning everything from manners, to being kind to friends and being a team player. If you could imagine Cocomelon meets hip hop, this is it!

"As a father, grandfather and longtime youth football coach, it's always been important to me to build positive and educational environments for all children," the rapper said about the new series. "We wanted to bring our show to YouTube and YouTube Kids which provides free access to everyone, so all the kids can enjoy it."

And while well known for his career in music, Snoop has a history of being involved in helping the youth. In 2005 he founded Snoop Youth Football League to give inner city children a chance to participate in youth football and cheer. Subsequently he created The Snoop Special Stars which serves as the special needs division of the program.

Doggyland currently has four episodes streaming on both platforms with new episodes set to release every Tuesday. The accompanying album Doggyland - Kids Songs & Nursery Rhymes is available on all streaming platforms.
