Walks away with 70 grand...

Snoop Dogg has made a surprise appearance on the American TV show The Price Is Right.

Why not start the day with something fun?

Once banned from the UK, Snoop Dogg is gradually evolving into the genial elder statesman of hip hop. The rapper returned to his 'Doggystyle' set at Lovebox last summer, and is doing plenty of charity work in his native United States.

Coaxed onto television by the Price Is Right, Snoop Dogg recently filmed a bizarre bordering on genius guest appearance. Working with contestant Darlene, the rapper answered a series of questions to win some big money.

Capturing a series of prizes, the rapper and his partner eventually walked away with a total prize value of $75,585.

Will they match Snoop Dogg's effortless cool? Probably not...
