Snoop Dogg is thinking of shortening his name for a second time, in a bid to keep up with changing trends in rap.

The artist formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dog now wants to shed all canine references from his moniker.

He says, "When I was young the Snoop Dogg thing was cool and a great way to attract chicks - but I may just shorten it to Snoop."
