CALVIN CORDOZAR BROADUS, JR. (born October 20, 1971), known professionally as SNOOP DOGG (sometimes shortened to SNOOP and formerly called SNOOP DOGGY DOGG and SNOOP LION), is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California . His music career began in 1992 when he was discovered by Dr. Dre of N.W.A
N.W.A
, and as a result Snoop was featured on Dre's solo debut, " Deep Cover ", And after that on Dr. Dre's solo debut album, The Chronic . He has since sold over twenty-three million albums in the United States and thirty-five million albums worldwide.

Snoop's debut album, Doggystyle , produced by Dr. Dre and released in 1993 through Death Row Records
Death Row Records
, debuting at number one on both the Billboard 200
Billboard 200
and Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Selling almost a million copies in the first week of its release, Doggystyle became certified 4× platinum in 1994 and spawned several hit singles , including "What\'s My Name? " and " Gin & Juice ". In 1994 Snoop released a soundtrack on Death Row Records
Death Row Records
for the short film Murder Was The Case , starring himself. His second album Tha Doggfather (1996), also debuted at number one on both charts with "Snoop\'s Upside Ya Head ", as the lead single. The album was certified double platinum in 1997.

After leaving Death Row Records, Snoop signed with No Limit Records , where he recorded his next three albums. Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told (1998), No Limit Top Dogg (1999), and Tha Last Meal (2000). Snoop then signed with Priority /Capitol / EMI
EMI
Records in 2002, where he released Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss . He then signed with Geffen Records in 2004 for his next three albums R&G (Rhythm "> Snoop Dogg has worked extensively with Tha Dogg Pound

To fuel the ascendance of West Coast 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. 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. Unlike much of the harder-edged gangsta rap artists, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
seemed to show his softer side, said music journalist Chuck Philips . In fact, the artist's favorite track on his 1993 album was a gospel-inspired tribute to his mother called Gangsta Life. "It's about how my mama raised me and my brothers on her own and how we got caught up on the streets...In the song I give my mama her respect and yet I try to show just what the wages are for kids not paying attention. I ain't no gospel rap musician, man, but I got faith in what I believe in," the artist told 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." 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 Secretary of State as business entity number C1923139.

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 and by August 1996 Doggy Style Records, a subsidiary of Death Row Records
Death Row Records
, signed The Gap Band 's Charlie Wilson as one of the record label's first artists. He collaborated with fellow rap artist 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 . Snoop Dogg

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 . 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 Gap Band frontman Charlie Wilson. While the album sold reasonably well, it was not as successful as its predecessor. However, 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. In an interview with Neil Strauss in 1998, Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
stated that though he had been given lavish gifts by his former label they had withheld royalty payments to the artist.

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": 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.

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.
