"I've been a fan of 'One Life To Live' since I was a baby," said Snoop in a statement. "My momma always had it on the tube in the crib growing up. The opportunity to change up the theme song and give it some of my flavor will make the show the 'Life of The Party.'"
Snoop will appear on the soap on May 8th and May 9th, where his remix will also be first broadcast.
