Wash, The : About The Cast

SNOOP DOGG - Dee Loc/Executive Producer
Dee Loc is an inner-city slacker who works a side hustle selling contraband and hooking up with the ladies while still on the clock at his low-stress job at THE WASH.

Snoop Dogg's silky raps came to epitomize the '90s gangsta rap scene when Dr. Dre introduced him to the world in "The Chronic" in 1992. The album about life balanced on the edge of peril and pleasure took the record industry by storm and rode the top of the record charts. He reprised his laconic lyrics and produced "Doggystyle" in 1993 which became the first debut album to enter the charts at No. 1. His second album "The Doggfather" proved to be equally popular in 1996. Two years later, his "Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told," debuted at No. 1 and sold over half a million copies its first week. Snoop dominated the charts with his last album "The Last Meal" which hit number one on Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop listing.
A rapper turned actor, Snoop can soon be seen in BONES, Antoine Fuqua's TRAINING DAY, opposite Denzel Washington and was in John Singleton's BABY BOY before that. Snoop will contribute to the soundtrack of THE WASH, which will be released by Dr. Dre's Aftermath and Snoop's Doggie Style labels.

DR. DRE - Sean/Executive Producer
Sean is Dee Loc's roommate and boss at THE WASH. Sean's seriousness on the job is beginning to drive a wedge between the two friends.

Dr. Dre has been credited with pioneering gangsta rap and a self-styled sound called G-Funk which has made him the impresario of hip-hop. He got his break in the music industry with the vaunted trio NWA. He broke away from the group in 1992 to found Death Row Records with Suge Knight, and the label quickly became the dominant force in hip-hop in the mid-'90s thanks to his solo debut "The Chronic" which won two Grammys and was the biggest selling album in 1993. Dre's label launched the careers of Warren G. and Snoop Dogg, grossing $75 million in 1994.

For nearly four years, Dr. Dre's sound reigned at the top of the charts. But he ended his partnership with Death Row just before the whole empire collapsed in late 1996. He formed a new record label, Aftermath, and released "Dr. Dre Presents The Aftermath" later in the year. In 1999, Dre released his second solo album "2001" which quickly shot to the top of the charts and earned him a 2000 Grammy nomination.

Although Dr. Dre has produced soundtracks for such movies as NATURAL BORN KILLERS and DEEP COVER, he makes his acting debut in Antoine Fuqua's TRAINING DAY. He will also executive produce the film's soundtrack for release on his Aftermath label. He's also the executive producer on THE WASH and will contribute to the soundtrack.
