Early life Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.[7][8] was born in Long Beach, California,[8][9] the second of three sons.[10] He was named after his stepfather, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Sr. His mother is Beverly Broadus (née Tate).[11][12][13] His father, Vernell Varnado,[12] was a Vietnam veteran, singer, and mail carrier who was said to be frequently absent from his life.[14] As a boy, Broadus' parents nicknamed him "Snoopy" because of his appearance, but they usually addressed him as Calvin at home.[9][15] His mother and stepfather divorced in 1975. When he was very young, Broadus began singing and playing piano at the Golgotha Trinity Baptist Church. In sixth grade, he began rapping.[16][17] Broadus' father left the family when he was three months old. A DNA test read by George Lopez
George Lopez
on Lopez Tonight revealed Broadus to be of 71% African, 23% Native American, and 6% European descent.[18] As a teenager, Broadus frequently ran into trouble with the law. He was a member of the Rollin' 20 Crips
Crips
gang in the Eastside area of Long Beach,[19][20] although he stated in 1993 that he never joined a gang.[16] Shortly after graduating from high school, he was arrested for possession of cocaine, and for the following three years, was frequently in and out of prison (including Wayside Jail).[9] Snoop, along with his cousins Nate Dogg
Nate Dogg
and Lil' ½ Dead, and friend Warren G, recorded homemade tapes as a group called 213, named after the Long Beach area code at the time. One of his early solo freestyles over En Vogue's "Hold On" had made it to a mixtape which was heard by influential producer Dr. Dre, who called to invite him to an audition. Former N.W.A
N.W.A
associate The D.O.C. taught him how to structure his lyrics and separate the thematics into verses, hooks, and chorus.[21] Musical career 1992–97: Death Row, Doggystyle, and Tha Doggfather When he began recording, Broadus took the stage name Snoop Doggy Dogg. Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
began working with Snoop Dogg, first on the theme song of the 1992 film Deep Cover, and then on Dr. Dre's debut solo album The Chronic with the other members of his former starting group, Tha Dogg Pound. The huge success of Snoop Dogg's debut Doggystyle
Doggystyle
was partially because of this intense exposure.[9]

To fuel the ascendance of West Coast G-funk
G-funk
hip hop, the singles "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" and "Gin and Juice" reached of the top ten most-played songs in the United States, and the album stayed on the Billboard charts for several months.[9] Gangsta rap
Gangsta rap
became the center of arguments for censorship and labeling, with Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
often used as an example of violent and misogynistic musicians.[22] Unlike much of the harder-edged gangsta rap artists, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
seemed to show his softer side, said music journalist Chuck Philips. Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
music critic Touré asserted that Snoop had a relatively soft vocal delivery compared to other rappers: "Snoop's vocal style is part of what distinguishes him: where many rappers scream, figuratively and literally, he speaks softly."[16] Doggystyle, much like The Chronic, featured a host of rappers signed to or affiliated with the Death Row label including Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Nate Dogg, and others. A short film about Snoop Dogg's murder trial called Murder Was the Case, was released in 1994, along with an accompanying soundtrack. On July 6, 1995, Doggy Style Records, Inc., a record label founded by Snoop Dogg, was registered with the California
California
Secretary of State as business entity number C1923139.[23] After Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
was acquitted of murder charges on February 20, 1996, he and the mother of his son and their kennel of twenty pit bulls moved into a 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) home in the hills of Claremont, California
California
and by August 1996 Doggy Style Records, a subsidiary of Death Row
Death Row
Records, signed the Gap Band's Charlie Wilson as one of the record label's first artists.[24] He collaborated with fellow rap artist Tupac Shakur
Tupac Shakur
in the 1996 single 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted. This would turn out to be one of Shakur's last songs while alive; he was shot on September 7, 1996 in Las Vegas, dying 6 days later.

However, by the time Snoop Dogg's second album, Tha Doggfather, was released in November 1996, the price of living (or sometimes just imitating) the gangsta life had become very evident. Among the many notable hip hop industry deaths and convictions were the death of Snoop Dogg's friend and labelmate Tupac Shakur

and the racketeering indictment of Death Row

co-founder Suge Knight.[9] Dr. Dre

had left Death Row

earlier in 1996 because of a contract dispute, so Snoop Dogg co-produced Tha Doggfather

with Daz Dillinger

and DJ Pooh. This album featured a distinct change of style as compared to Doggystyle, and the leadoff single, "Snoop's Upside Ya Head", featured a collaboration with the aformentioned Charlie Wilson. While the album sold reasonably well, it was not as successful as its predecessor. However, Tha Doggfather
Tha Doggfather
had a somewhat softer approach to the G-funk style. The immediate aftermath of Dr. Dre's withdrawal from Death Row Records, realizing that he was subject to an iron-clad time-based contract (i.e., that Death Row

practically owned anything he produced for a number of years), Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
refused to produce any more tracks for Suge Knight, other than the insulting "Fuck Death Row", until his contract expired.[19] In an interview with Neil Strauss
Neil Strauss
in 1998, Snoop Dogg stated that though he had been given lavish gifts by his former label they had withheld royalty payments to the artist.[25] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic said that after Tha Doggfather, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
began "moving away from his gangsta roots toward a calmer lyrical aesthetic":[9] for instance, Snoop participated in the 1997 Lollapalooza
Lollapalooza
concert tour, which featured mainly alternative rock music. Troy J. Augusto of Variety noticed that Snoop's set at Lollapalooza
Lollapalooza
attracted "much dancing, and, strangely, even a small mosh pit" in the audience.[26] 1998–2006: Signing with No Limit and continued success

He hadn't written nothing down. He just came in and started busting. The song was "Tha Shiznit"—that was all freestyle. He started busting and when we got to the break, Dre cut the machine off, did the chorus and told Snoop to come back in. He did that throughout the record. That's when Snoop was in the zone then." Peter Shapiro says that Snoop debuted on "Deep Cover" with a "shockingly original flow – which sounded like a Slick Rick born in South Carolina
South Carolina
instead of South London"[72] and adds that he "showed where his style came from by covering Slick Rick's 'La Di Da Di'".[69] Referring to Snoop's flow, Kool Moe Dee calls him "one of the smoothest, funkiest flow-ers in the game".[68] How to Rap

holiday, where he praised minister Louis Farrakhan. Snoop stated he was a member of the Nation, but declined to give the date on which he joined. He also donated $1,000 to the organization.[103][104][105] Claiming to be "born again" in 2012, the gangster rapper converted to the Rastafari
Rastafari
movement,[106][107][108][109] switched the focus of his music to reggae[110] and changed his name to "Snoop Lion" following a trip to Jamaica. He released a reggae album Reincarnated, stating "I have always said I was Bob Marley
Bob Marley
reincarnated", referring to the Jamaican reggae legend who died in 1981.[111] In January 2013, he received criticism from members of the Rastafarian community in Jamaica, including reggae artist Bunny Wailer, for an alleged failure to meet his commitments to the culture.[112] Snoop later dismissed the claims, stating his beliefs were personal and not up for outside judgment.[113] Wailer is credited for giving Snoop the name "Lion".[113] Charity Dogg partners with city officials and annually gives away turkeys to the less fortunate in Inglewood, California

(including "He a white nigga", "That muthafucka's name is Mitt", and "He a ho").[116] In an interview with The Huffington Post, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
came out in support of same-sex marriage, saying that "people can do what they want."[117] In his keynote address at the 2015 South by Southwest
South by Southwest
music festival, he blamed Los Angeles' explosion of gang violence in the 1980s on the economic policies of Ronald Reagan, and insinuated that his administration shipped guns and drugs into the area.[118] He endorsed then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton
in May 2016 saying "I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male's train of thought ... [and] just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Ms. Clinton."[119] Business ventures and investments Broadus has been an active entrepreneur and investor. In 2009, he was appointed creative chairman of Priority Records.[120] In April 2015, Broadus became a minority investor in his first investment venture Eaze, a California-based weed delivery startup that promises to deliver medical marijuana to persons doorstep in less than 10 minutes.[121][122][123] In October 2015, Broadus launched his new digital media business, Merry Jane, that focuses on news about marijuana. "Merry Jane is cannabis 2.0", he said in a promotional video for the media source. "A crossroads of pot culture, business, politics, health."[124] In November 2015, Broadus announced his new brand of cannabis products Leafs By Snoop. The line of branded products includes marijuana flowers, concentrates and edibles. " Leafs By Snoop is truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and proud to be a pioneer", Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
said. "LBS is blazing a trail for the industry." In such a way, Broadus became the first major celebrity to brand and market a line of legal marijuana products.[125] Broadus and his brand manager Nick Adler released an app, Snoopify that lets users plaster stickers of Snoop's face, joints or a walrus hat on photos. Adler built the app in May after discovering stickers in Japan. The app currently generates $30,000 in weekly sales.[126] On March 30, 2016, Broadus was reported to purchase the famed soul food restaurant chain Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

out of bankruptcy.[127] Legal incidents

Mug shot (1993)

Shortly after graduating from high school, Broadus was arrested for possession of cocaine and for the following three years was frequently in and out of prison.[9] In 1990, he was convicted of felony possession of drugs and possession for sale.[128] While recording Doggystyle

in August 1993, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
was arrested in connection with the death of Philip Woldemariam, a member of a rival gang who was shot and killed by Snoop's bodyguard, McKinley Lee; Snoop was charged with murder along with Lee as he was driving the vehicle from which the shooting took place. Snoop and Lee were defended by Johnnie Cochran.[129] Both Snoop and Lee were acquitted; Lee was acquitted on grounds of self-defense, but Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
remained entangled in the legal battles around the case for three years.[130] In July 1993, Snoop was stopped for a traffic violation and a firearm was found by police while conducting a search of his car. In February 1997, he pleaded guilty to possession of a handgun and was ordered to record three public service announcements, pay a $1,000 fine, and serve three years' probation.[131][132][133] Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, and The Game were sued for assaulting a fan on stage at a May 2005 concert at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington. The accuser, Richard Monroe Jr., claimed he was beaten by the artists' entourage while mounting the stage, allegedly after an "open invite".[134] The lawsuit, which sought $22 million in damages, was dismissed in 2009.[135] In September 2006, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
was detained at John Wayne Airport

in Orange County, California
California
by airport security, after airport screeners found a collapsible police baton in Snoop's carry-on bag. Donald Etra, Snoop's lawyer, told deputies the baton was a prop for a musical sketch. Snoop was sentenced to three years' probation and 160 hours of community service for the incident starting in September 2007.[136] Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
was arrested again October 2006 at Bob Hope Airport
Bob Hope Airport
in Burbank after being stopped for a traffic infraction; he was arrested for possession of a firearm and for suspicion of transporting an unspecified amount of marijuana, according to a police statement. The following month, after taping an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he was arrested again for possession of marijuana, cocaine and a firearm. Two members of Snoop's entourage, according to the Burbank police statement, were admitted members of the Rollin 20's Crips
Crips
gang, and were arrested on separate charges.[137] In April 2007, he was sentenced to a three-year suspended sentence, five years' probation, and was required to perform 800 hours of community service after pleading no contest to two felony charges of drug and gun possession by a convicted felon. He was also prohibited from hiring anyone with a criminal record or gang affiliation as a security guard or a driver.[128] In April 26, 2006, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
and members of his entourage were arrested after being turned away from British Airways' first class lounge at Heathrow Airport. Snoop and his party were denied entry to the lounge due to some members flying in economy class. After being escorted outside, the group vandalized a duty-free shop with whiskey bottles. Seven police officers were injured in the midst of the disturbance. After a night in jail, Snoop and the other men were released on bail the next day, but he was unable to perform a scheduled concert in Johannesburg.[138] On May 15, the Home Office decided that Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
would be denied entry to the United Kingdom for the foreseeable future, and his British visa was denied the following year.[139][140][141] As of March 2010, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
has been allowed back into the UK.[142] The group involved in the incident have been banned by British Airways
British Airways
for "the foreseeable future."[143] In April 2007, the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship banned him from entering the country on character grounds, citing his prior criminal convictions. He had been scheduled to appear at the MTV Australia Video Music Awards on April 29, 2007.[144] Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship lifted the ban in September 2008 and had granted him visa to tour Australia. DIAC said: "In making this decision, the department weighed his criminal convictions against his previous behaviour while in Australia, recent conduct – including charity work – and any likely risk to the Australian community ... We took into account all relevant factors and, on balance, the department decided to grant the visa."[145] He was banned from entering Norway for two years in July 2012 after entering the country the month before in possession of 8 grams of marijuana and an undeclared kr 227,000 in cash, or about US$27,000 as of September 2015.[146][147][148] Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
has also been arrested and fined for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Los Angeles in 1998,[149] in Cleveland
Cleveland
in 2001,[150] and Sierra Blanca, Texas
Sierra Blanca, Texas
in 2010.[151] Snoop Dogg, after performing for a concert in Uppsala, Sweden on July 25, 2015, was pulled over and detained by Swedish police for allegedly using illegal drugs, violating a Swedish law enacted in 1988, which criminalized the recreational use of such substances – therefore even being under the influence of any illegal/controlled substance a crime in itself even without possession. During the detention, he was taken to the police station to perform a drug test and was released afterwards. The rapid test was positive for traces of narcotics, and he was potentially subject to fines depending on the results of more detailed analysis, which were expected to be completed within several weeks.[152] The rapper uploaded several videos on the social networking site, Instagram, criticising the police for alleged racial profiling. He declared in the videos, "Nigga as got me in the back of police car right now in Sweden, cuz", and "Pulled a nigga over for nothing, taking us to the station where I’ve got to go pee in a cup for nothin'. I ain’t done nothin'. All I did was came to the country and did a concert, and now I've got to go to the police station. For nothin.'!" He announced to his Swedish fanbase that he would no longer go on tour in Sweden anymore due to the incident. Police spokesman, Daniel Nilsson, responded to the accusations by saying, "We don't work like that in Sweden."[153][154][155] In the Death Row Records
