Rapper Snoop Dogg is asking $1.995 million for his eight-bedroom mansion, which was once featured on the MTV show Cribs.

And the ‘hood? The quiet community of Claremont, 30 miles east of Los Angeles.

“It’s virtually brand new,” said Geoff Hamill, the Prudential real estate broker handling the sale. “It’s on a cul-de-sac. It’s in a family area in a college town.”

The nearly one-acre Mediterranean estate, in the exclusive Blaisdell Ranch area of Claremeont, has a pool, basketball court, home theater and recording studio. The rare tip-off that Snoop owned the home was a sign in the entry: “Wipe Your Bloody Feet.”

Snoop, 35, currently on probation on a weapons and drug conviction, bought the home, which has 5.5 baths, in 1994 when it was 3,700 square feet, but expanded it to 6,500 square feet over the years.

Among its other amenities are marble floors in the entry, a gourmet kitchen, high ceilings and dual master suites.

The estate can be viewed on a virtual tour.
