Snoop Dogg's "musical" film inspired by his preceding album R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta) The Masterpiece, Boss 'n up debuted on 6 December 2005. It came out in DVD format. It was the first release of the newly founded Snoopadelic Films, run by Snoop Dogg.

Snoop stars as a grocery clerk named Cordé Christopher, a young and magnetic man, subject to keen female interest. He becomes a protégé of Orange Juice, an experienced pimp, after being informed of the better and richer life he can lead if he becomes a pimp. OJ cultivates Cordé's 'talent' and shares street knowledge with him, including the Rules of the "Pimping" Game. To some degree OJ treats Corde like a son. After achieving success Cordé has to choose between the love of his life, Chardonnay Allen, and his successful career as a pimp.

The casting includes other musicians like Atlanta rapper Lil Jon plays the role of Sheriff, a strip club owner who becomes a partner in Corde's business, Dominique, Corde's attractive attorney who frees him from prison, and comedian Scruncho is Hucky G, Corde's own pimping protégé.
