His contract also called on the rapper to consult with Colt 45?s marketing team at least once a year on how he could integrate Blast by Colt 45 into his concerts, interviews and social media posts.

Snoop Dogg received an upfront payment of $250,000 and an additional $20,000 for every 10th mention of the beer on social media, TV or during a concert.

Pabst wrote in a statement that it had not been contacted by Snoop Dogg or his representatives about the proceeds and cited the company?s new management. ?We are investigating the matter and would be happy to talk to Snoop or his representatives to try to get to the bottom of this,? the statement said.

The lawsuit states Pabst told the rapper that the sale didn?t trigger the clause entitling him to sale proceeds....
