Snoop Dogg has a turbulent history with gangs. The rapper was charged with first-degree murder for the shooting of Philip Woldermariam in 1993. The murder trial came to a close in 1996.

In December 2021, STARZ entered into an agreement with 50 Cent to adapt the murder trial into a miniseries. However, it seems that the miniseries won’t be seeing the light of the day now that it is no longer in production.

50 Cent took to Twitter to blast the network for dropping the ball with the miniseries. The rap mogul said he hoped Snoop gets to tell his story somehow.

@SnoopDogg Murder was the case is no longer in production at STARZ. I give them the alley-oop, they drop the damn ball. Anyway i hope snoop tell his story. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi


A short film about Snoop Dogg’s murder trial, “Murder Was the Case,” was released in 1994, along with an accompanying soundtrack. Snoop distanced himself from “gangsta” lifestyle following his acquittal.
