Snoop Dogg is an American rapper, songwriter, media personality, actor, and entrepreneur. His success story is about fighting the odds and following dreams. He owns ‘Snoop Youth Football League,’ integrated in 2005. Snoop is ready to quit his smoking habit to become a lifetime football achievement.
On October 20th, 1971, Snoop Dogg was born in Long Beach, California. When he was three months old, his father left the family, only leaving him with his stepfather.
He is one of two boys born to mom’s three children total. His mother divorced her husband when Snoop Dogg was 11 years old. No other kids were around for him anymore, which gave the young boy a rough childhood. But it also allowed him to be more independent than most other kids.
Snoop Dogg was very young when he began singing and playing piano at his local church. When he entered sixth grade, he started rapping. As a child, Snoop did some jobs to help with the family finances- selling candy, delivering newspapers, and bagging groceries. He is described as an active student in school who also sang in the choir and played football.
All of this while still excelling academically! One natural consequence of these many activities is that Mrs. Broadus had to ensure her son didn’t get involved with certain unlawful activities during his teenage years. Even though she fully supported him pursuing any interest which would take him down the path of success.
As a teenager, Broadus often ran into trouble with the law. He was a member of the Rollin’ 20s Crips gang in Long Beach’s Eastside neighborhood, although he denied it in 1993 by saying he never joined a gang.
Shortly after graduating from Polytechnic High School at Long Beach Polytechnic High School in 1989. Broadus was arrested for possession of cocaine and three years frequently incarcerated, including Wayside Jail.
Snoop Dogg and his two cousins, Nate Dogg and Lil Half Dead, and friend Warren G Snoop recorded homemade tapes. They called their group 213. One of Snoop’s early solo freestyles over “Hold On” by En Vogue landed on a mixtape. Dr. Dre (producer) called him to audition, impressed by the sample. The D.O.C. taught him to structure his lyrics and separate the themes into verses, hooks, and choruses.
He holds the record for the most Grammy nominations with no wins. Snoop was first nominated in 1994 in Best Rap Performance by a duo or group. And since then, he has been nominated a total of 17 times. Snoop has been very open about his criticism of the Grammys and has recently refused to attend the awards ceremony.
Snoop’s favorite song on his debut album is about his mother. His first album, Doggystyle, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and it took the record as being the fastest-selling hip hop album ever. But his favorite on the album was a gospel-inspired tribute to his mother called “Gangstas life.”
Snoop is a co-owner of Reddit; it’s a website that offers web content ratings, discussion forums, and news aggregation. It was founded in 2005. Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian received fifty million dollars in funding from a few investors. Including Snoop and Jared Leto, who own stakes in the company.
