Snoop Dogg’s Career
The man of many names. Snoop Dogg. Snoop Doggy Dogg. Snoop Lion. Snoopzilla. Cordozar Calvin Broadus. He is widely known as one of the best and most influential rappers from the West Coast. His lyricism has widely been influenced by his numerous run-ins with the law, and his career really took off when he teamed up with legendary producer Dr. Dre. But what kind of numbers is the rapper doing now?
The Career of Snoop Dogg
Snoop was born on 20th October 1971 in Long Beach, California, to his parents Vernall and Beverly, who split three months after he was born. As they split, Snoop’s early life took place which his father was massively absent from. His Mum eventually remarried, and his new stepdad gave him the nickname Snoopy, after which an icon was truly born.
As previously stated, Snoop Dogg started his career in the 1990s when he rose to fame as one of the most prolific voices in the rap scene. His unique vocal tone, combined with cold-cutting and unapologetic lyricism, caught the attention of Dr. Dre. Dre got him featured on the single “Deep Cover” and then also on his landmark album “The Chronic” which brought the world the formidable single “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang”. Snoop went on to release his debut album, “Doggystyle”, in 1993, which was the first debut record to enter the Billboard 200 chart at number one.
As his career has progressed, Snoop has continued to make music but has also become a huge face in the realm of TV and entertainment. He has starred in multiple different games, TV series, and comedy nights (including the roast of Donald Trump).
One of the most recent TV appearances he made was as a delivery driver in a new Just Eat ad. It’s assumed this was for entertainment purposes as it’s unlikely that someone like Snoop Doggy Dogg would have taken to the load board page of Shiply to look for work, but his career has taken such a quirky turn; who knows?
