Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., was born on October 20, 1971 in Long Beach, CA. He has also gone by the stage name Snoop Lion. Snoop married his high school sweetheart, Shante, in June 1997. The longtime couple has three children – Cordell, Corde, and Cori – and one grandson - Zion. The rapper rose to fame in the 1990s for his music with Dr. Dre. He released his own album titled “Doggystyle” in 1993. Snoop was arrested in connection to a drive-by shooting while recording this album, but was eventually cleared of the charges. Once the legalities were sorted out, Snoop hit the studio to record his follow-up album, “The Doggfather,” in 1996. Some of his most recognizable tracks include “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Peaches N Cream.” Snoop has accumulated many top honors including MTV VMAs, BET Awards, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, and more including several GRAMMY nominations. He has also dabbled in reality television, co-starring alongside Martha Stewart in the VH1 series “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.” Snoop has made no secret his love of indulging in cannabis. In April 2017, Snoop was named Celebrity Commissioner and Owner of Champions Basketball League. He also founded a non-profit youth football program called Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL).
