Fans of such festive classics as Eazy-E’s “Merry Muthaphuckking Xmas,” and Afroman’s “Deck My Balls” are in for a special treat this Christmas season. To raise money for his non-profit and spread some good old Yuletide cheer, Snoop Dogg is taking requests for classic Christmas stories on Reddit. The story, song, or poem that gets the most up-votes will be read or rapped by DJ Snoopadelic himself, resulting in a heartwarming take on a Christmas classic that will probably contain zero references to marijuana, sex workers, and/or moderately priced brands of cognac.

This isn’t the first time Snoop has gotten into the Christmas spirit: in 2007, he released a holiday album, Snoop Dogg Presents Christmas In Tha Dogg House, featuring his take on the Xmas classic “Twas The Night Before Christmas” (sample lyric“Yo Santa what’s up? Did you bring me some chronic?/And Tanqueray gin I can mix with my tonic?”).

This Christmas, however, the idea for Snoop Dogg to read Christmas stories originated with Redditor Sportsnut19, who posted the request in the cannabis-themed subreddit r/trees. “Aya int a bad idea neffew!! lemme kno wut stories u wnt!!” Snoop responded, before posting a thread with the following image earlier today:

In addition to taking requests for stories (Redditors’ real-life Christmas stories and classics like “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” seem to be the most popular, though my personal vote is for a bong-themed version of O. Henry’s “Gift of the Magi”), Snoop is also soliciting donations to his non-profit, the Snoop Youth Football League, which gives inner-city children ages 5-13 the opportunity to participate in youth football and cheer.

While those who donate $200 or more will receive a signed pack of rolling papers from Snoop himself, one lucky donor will win the opportunity to intern for Snoop for the day: “we’ll get lunch at Roscoes, play some video games, plan out world domination n decorate some trees,” Snoop writes in the job description. Though this is probably shorthand for “fetch lattes for my dealer” and “sign back copies of Starsky and Hutch posters,” it’s a small price to pay for spreading holiday cheer to those in need (and for the opportunity to put “Intern: Snoop Dogg, 2013” on your resume).
