Jump To Snoop Dogg's Stats
Snoop Dogg may be getting a little long in the tooth in Rapper years, but none of the ‘yung thugs got’ anything on this smooth, cool operator. Along with being one of the richest in the biz, with a net worth of $143,733,750, this quadruple threat - rapper, singer, producer, actor - is arguably one of the best and can certainly teach the green horns a thing or two or three about free-style and slamming rhymes.
Snoop was cool long before Rap became cool. With his trademark gangsta style, replete with ‘pimp’ cup, bedazzled glasses and big jewelry, smooth long braided hair and hats, he gave fans and beyond the full effect.
Born October 20, 1971 to the name Cordozar Calvin Broadus in Long Beach, California, he ran the streets as a young gang member which ultimately took him down a path to jail. After his 1992 release, the winds of change blew his way in the form of Dr. Dre. The rest as they say is history. Cordozar was left behind and Snoop Doggy Dog was born later to evolve into the shorter moniker Snoop Dog.
First signed by Dr. Dre, Snoop delivered his debut album Doggystyle in 1993, propelling his unique brand of Rap into mainstream America. Released under Death Row records, his album did so well, it sold one million copies in the first week and was number one on R&B and Billboard charts, going Platinum one year later.
Apart from his rap success, Snoop, now age 40, has dabbled in movies, has a clothing line and is a top notch producer. Not bad for a tall skinny boy from the other side of the West Coast tracks.
