Snoop Dogg is a West Coast-based rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, media personality, entrepreneur, and actor. As of this writing, Snoop Dogg has a net worth of $150 million.

His music career began in 1992 when he was discovered by Dr. Dre. He went on to release a number of classic songs and albums under the Death Row Records label. 

Snoop Dogg is one of the wealthiest and most successful rappers to come out of the 1990s rap scene, and one of the few still recording today.

Cordozar Calvin Broadus was born on October 20, 1971, in Long Beach, California. His parents Vernall and Beverly split three months after Snoop was born. His father was largely absent from his life. His mother remarried.

His mom and stepfather nicknamed him Snoopy due to how much he loved the cartoon character from Peanuts. 

He was the second of his mother's three sons. When he was very young, Snoop began singing and playing piano at the Golgotha Trinity Baptist Church.

Snoop and his cousins Nate Dogg and Lil' 1/2 Dead and friend Warren G recorded homemade tapes.

 They called themselves 213 after the area code of Long Beach at that time. "Hold On," one of Snoop's early solo freestyle songs was on a mixtape that wound up in Dr. Dre's hands.
