Jamie Foxx enlisted Snoop Dogg to talk to his daughter's boyfriend to 'shake him up'

Anyone dating Jamie Foxx's daughters will have to get by Snoop Dogg first.

The 53-year-old Oscar winner stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his book Act Like You Got Some Sense (out Oct. 19) and shared a story of enlisting Snoop to impress some sense upon his daughter's boyfriend.

"What happened was my daughter, who didn't know that I had already run a background check on her boyfriend, he comes to the crib and Snoop happens to be there," Foxx recalled. "And I said, 'Snoop! There he is, right there. Shake him up!' Snoop walked over to my daughter's boyfriend and just said, 'Hey, what's up? What's up, cuz? Hey, look here. You know, we her uncles, so act accordingly, homie.'"

The best part of the story was the way Foxx impersonated the iconic West Coast rapper.

"But the underlying meaning of it was I wanted the young man to understand that she's got people that really love her, so that if something does go wrong, Snoop is coming," he added.

While the multi-hyphenate entertainer didn't clarify which of his two daughters he was referring to, it's probably safe to assume it was 27-year-old Corinne Foxx rather than 13-year-old Annalise Bishop.
Corinne and Jamie have a close relationship, as she served as an executive producer on her father's Netflix sitcom Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me!
