Snoop Dogg has cleaned up his image from gangster rapper to multi-format entertainer, but he's looking to the past in a new series he's developing for HBO.

Snoop announced Friday - when he was giving the keynote address at South by Southwest - that he's working with Allen Hughes on the show about 1980s Los Angeles.

Snoop, a former gangster rapper, was born in Long Beach, California. Hughes' credits include "Dead Presidents," "Menace II Society" and "The Book of Eli."

"HBO is the number one network in the world as far as developing and having these types of shows come to life," he said. "This is a dream come true to be able to tell a story that's going to be told the right way on the right network."

In a wide-ranging interview Friday with his manager Ted Chung in Austin, Texas, 43-year-old Snoop discussed topics from getting high with Willie Nelson to meeting Dr. Dre.
