Snoop Dogg thinks David Beckham would make a good music producer.

The 42-year-old rapper - whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. - often asks the former soccer star, 39, to listen to his tracks before they're released as he believes he has really good judgement on tunes.

The 'Drop it Like it's Hot' hitmaker told The Sun newspaper: ''David has a natural ability when it comes to music. I run all my new stuff past him. It's not just because he is my boy - it's because I respect his opinion when it comes to music, especially hip-hop.

''Not many people know it, but he is a good DJ. He has an ear for it.''

However, it doesn't seem like David will be making the jump into the music business any time soon as he is currently wrapped up in other projects, including launching his own whisky brand earlier this week.

The hunk - who teamed up with his business partner Simon Fuller and alcoholic beverage company Diageo to create the single grain scotch - celebrated the global launch at a star-studded bash at Gilmerton house on the outskirts of Edinburgh in Scotland last weekend.

The whisky - entitled Haig Club - was served to guests, including his wife Victoria, their pals Gordon and Tana Ramsay, Professor Jimmy Choo, Tracy Phillips, Raffy and Jo Manoukian, Ruth Kennedy and Rose Uniacke.

Speaking at the launch, David said: ''This whisky is designed to be different, from the unique craftsmanship of the bottle, to the distinctive flavour.

''Crafted at Scotland's oldest grain distillery, Haig Club has rich tradition and amazing heritage that myself and Diageo are proud to be taking forward.''
