Snoop is going make the initial call for entries through his Facebook account, Twitter and YouTube page.

If you have the skills and bust out the phattest rap, you’ll receive round trip airfare for two to Los Angeles along with two days and two nights hotel stay to meet with Snoop's management and learn more about his business. You’ll also get two tickets to a Snoop Dogg concert and a new laptop pimped out with Norton Internet Security 2011.

If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #SnoopNorton to find and mark tweets about the contest. The contest begins Sept. 1 and ends Sept. 30. Good luck, Yo!
