Judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their departure at the end of last season and Randy Jackson is reported to be taking on a "mentoring role".
Snoop said in an interview this week: "I'll do American Idol."
Mariah Carey has already been announced as one of the new judges when the new series of the show begins in January. When told that Mariah is earning about 18 million dollars a year for a one-year contract with a renewal option, Snoop looked to his manager and jokingly yelled: "Get on it!"

Snoop, 40, announced earlier this week that he's using the name Snoop Lion for an upcoming reggae album. He now considers himself a Rastafarian after what he calls a life-changing trip to Jamaica, and he is releasing a documentary about his rebirth. Both the album and film are called Reincarnated.
