Finding the next big talent seems to be all the rage with shows like "The X Factor," "Platinum Hit," and of course "American Idol."

Snoop Dogg is the latest star hoping to jump on the bandwagon. The rapper reportedly been pitching TV networks on an American Idol-type show to find the next hip hop star, the New York Post reported Monday.

Snoop's dream panel of hip-hop experts to judge such a show would include an old-school legend and Jay-Z, the Post said. But Jay-Z's representative denied that the star had any involvement, it added.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa has shown interest though, the paper reported.

"I'm looking for a deal from a network to find America's hottest ';hood artists'," the Post cited Snoop Dogg as saying recently.

Do you think a hip hop talent show would be a hit?
