Rapper SNOOP DOGG is turning his life into a seven-volume book series.

The GIN & JUICE star, who was arrested overnight on suspicion of illegal drug and gun possession at a California airport, has teamed up with writer DAVID TALBERT to pen his memoirs.

The first book in the series, LOVE DON'T LIVE HERE NO MORE: BOOK ONE OF DOGGY TALES, is out now and Snoop hopes to release another six installments of insights into his life.

He says, "The first book is about a mother and a son's relationship and his struggle to become a hip-hop artist, while dealing with his mother and her boyfriends.

"He's at an age where he has to move out and feels like his mother's boyfriend at the same time, your mother's lover. It's like, 'Get this grown-ass n**ga out the house and let him do his own thing.'

"It's got a free CD in there in the back of the book and I made a song to cover the whole book. We got about six more volumes to go." (KL&RXM/WN/MEH)
