Snoop Dogg helps stranded motorist Content Exchange

Snoop Dogg came to the rescue of a stranded driver on Sunday (02.18.18)

The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' hitmaker aided Katrina Graham when her car broke down on the freeway in Riverside, California, when she was driving back from church.

Katrina told TMZ that, as she waited for her brother to come to help her out, she heard a knock on the window and when she turned to look, saw Snoop looking concernedly at her.

He offered to give the stranded motorist's car a push because he thought she was in an unsafe spot, and parked his own car off the exit before running back to help her out of the way of moving traffic.

The 46-year-old rapper then found the time to pose for a picture with Katrina, before heading back to his own car and driving off to the NBA All-Star Game.

Snoop is a big basketball fan, and last year he was made celebrity commissioner and part-owner of the Champions Basketball League.

He confirmed in an official statement last April: "Champions Basketball League is a sports innovation for fans. Champions provides exclusive and affordable access to world class basketball for fans.

"I'm looking forward to collaborating with the organisation on unique ways to entertain fans and work with the league to secure celebrity partners in each of the major markets where Champions Basketball League will play this summer. And fans are even able to own their own team, can't wait to see what ya'll do with that."

The Champions Basketball League will see former NBA players return to the court to take part in a five-on-five summer league.

In the statement, Carl George, CEO of Champions Basketball League praised Snoop for his success and admits he is looking forward to 'The Doggfather' bringing his "depth" to the League. He added: "Snoop Dogg is at the forefront of pop culture and loved by millions across the globe, and has sold nearly 40 million records worldwide. For decades he has been an innovator with award winning albums, multiple films, lifestyle products, philanthropic efforts, TV shows and digital ventures - and we are thrilled that he will bring this depth to the League as we launch this summer."
