They took care of us, like older brothers. What gave you the idea for it? He wanted me to write something. I wanted to tell the story of him, Nate [Dogg] and Snoopie. I know if I did that I would have a classic. Anything else would be an album filler. I asked him a bunch of questions, and I wrote the rap as he was telling me. He makes no secret of his gang past, his many trips to the county lockup, or his post-fame early s stint as an actual pimp.
That he remains a beloved public figure in spite of all this is a testament to just how lovable this man really is. The old gang isn't too happy with him While most prominent members of the Crips have never contested Snoop's ties to their illustrious organization, that doesn't mean they're all too happy with him. Arounda scary gentleman by the name of Big Flossy began calling out Snoop on social media, and his grievances were many. A second-generation Rolling 20, Flossy took issue with Snoop neglecting to significantly give back to the Long Beach community — later clarifying that a promised injection of cash to build a youth center never materialized — and failing to use his platform to broker peace between the Rolling 20s and Insane Crips, mortal enemies who both look up to him.
Rumors even circulated around this same time that Snoop's "hood card" had been pulled — that he'd been kicked out of the neighborhood by order of the very set he used to claim.

Snoop took to YouTube to angrily deny thisas well as Flossy's accusations, pointing out the many things he's done to help disadvantaged youth and proclaiming himself "King of Long Beach. If any further proof of Snoop's credentials as a Crip are needed, the blue streak he curses in the video should suffice. He's got a lot of famous cousins Snoop is a talented rapper, oozes charisma, and obviously has an aversion to taking any crap whatsoever, so it's hardly surprising that he achieved a ridiculous level of fame.
Apparently, though, there is a genetic predisposition for paparazzi and adoring fans in Snoop's family, and not all of the talent is musical. She and Snoop have bonded over their shared love of pro wrestling, and she has said that huge chunks of her "Legit Boss" stage persona came about just from spending time around him.
His son is destined for fame, but not as a rapper Snoop has been involved in youth football for years and yearsgetting into coaching for his son Cordell's middle school team and now running a statewide league in California.
Some of his players have gone on to success in the NFLand Cordell himself seemed set for pro stardom after being recruited by the UCLA Bruins — that is, until he abruptly quit to pursue a career as a filmmaker.
After an outstanding high school career, the four-star wide receiver prospect waffled on whether he would play for a couple of seasons before permanently hanging up his jersey for film school in He explained that he had only ever seen football as a hobby and a way to become closer with Big Snoop and had made his decision after hearing his Dad say that he "loved Cordell the person, not Cordell the football player," which is just heartwarming as all get-out.
While pursuing his degree, the young Dogg went ahead and started his own production company, the appropriately named Film School Productionswhich will presumably rebrand itself as Makin' Movies Now Productions after graduation. He's married to his high school girlfriend In case it's not yet becoming obvious, Snoop is quite a family guy.
No, not that kindSnoop Dogg is good at rapping. As a world-famous rapper who, again, literally became an actual pimp at the height of his fame, one could be forgiven for assuming that he has — how can we put this delicately — had carnal relations with truckloads of buxom women. While this may or may not be accurate, there has been one constant female presence in Snoop's life — his wife Shante Broadus, whom he met when both were in high school.
Admittedly, it has been a bit of an up-and-down relationship. The pair became an on-again-off-again couple when Snoop was totally unknown and remained that way throughout his insane early '90s fame explosion.Snoop Dogg - Lay Low Ft Nate Dogg, Eastsidaz, Master P & Butch Cassidy [Official Music Video]
They finally married inbut Snoop filed for divorce inwhich may have been related to all of the pimping. However, the couple renewed their vows inand it's been reasonably smooth sailing since. Shante is the mother of all three of the little Doggs — Cordell has an older brother named Corde and a little sister named Cori — and if you think they're an adorable couple now, wait til you see the prom photos Snoop shared to his Instagram on their 19th anniversary.
Snoop has had this lovable badass thing down for a really long time. His own parents gave him that silly stage name Snoop's stage name has gone through a few permutations over time.
He famously, albeit briefly, changed it to Snoop Lion for a brief foray into reggae, and longtime fans remember that his moniker used to have an extra Doggy during the years that he seemed to have trouble remembering it himself. But for all the Doggs of Rap, which needs to be a supergroup right now, Snoop stood out for having a singularly silly stage name that only a mother could love, because she gave it to him.
To be fair, he certainly looks a lot more like a Snoop Dogg than a Calvin, and the similarity to Charlie Brown's pal was even more oddly pronounced in his youth. But since his Mom was obviously such a big fan of the funny papers, it's just a good thing he wasn't a chubby kid.
