Short bio: 

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. (born October 20, 1971 or October 20, 1972), best known by his stage name Snoop Dogg, is a rapper and actor from Long Beach, California. His music career began in 1992, when he was discovered by Dr. Dre of N.W.A and as a result was prominently featured throughout Dr. Dre's solo debut album, The Chronic (1992). He has since sold over 35 million albums worldwide.

Snoop's debut album, Doggystyle, was released in 1993 under Death Row Records, debuting at number one on both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs 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 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, 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 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 & Gangsta): The Masterpiece, Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, and Ego Trippin'. Malice 'n Wonderland (2009) and Doggumentary (2011), were released on Priority. Snoop Dogg has starred in motion pictures and hosted several television shows including, Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, Snoop Dogg's Father Hood and Dogg After Dark. He also coaches a youth football league and high school football team. In September 2009, Snoop was hired by EMI as the chairman of a reactivated Priority Records.

In 2012, after a trip to Jamaica, Snoop announced a conversion to the Rastafari movement and a new alias, Snoop Lion. Under the new moniker, he released a reggae album, Reincarnated, and a documentary film of the same name, of his Jamaican experience, in early 2013. His thirteenth solo studio album, Bush, was released in May 2015.

When I used to think of cool people I would love to smoke weed with I thought it Snoop Dogg...

I used to think he was awesome... I remember when he was in Old School the movie... I'm always so happy to see him in Hollywood... I was happy to see him be a great father on his reality show....

Look we get it you don't like Trump. You wanted to vote for Hillary Clinton who said she wasn't going to legalize weed to Goldman Sachs.

I think you're a traitor to the little guy who made you you... I think you lost touch... And I sure hope you're not involved with any of this pizza stuff...

You think it's cool to shoot Donald Trump... I don't think it's cool to shoot Obama and I didn't vote for him the second time...

I tell you to shoot yourself in the foot... But you already did with all this establishment Trump hate...

I'm not a Rapper or music producer and I'm not trying to be one. I'm a fan of music. I've had several different versions of FL Studio just to play around with beats. For whatever reason, I've made a beat and don't want to share it with anyone but you. I visually hear your voice with this track and I want to give it to you. Not looking for any in return. Just want to hear you rap over this track. That's all. Thank you.

Snoop I just saw your Tostitos commercial. Bro, you keep it real and getting paper from national ads. Hope the post to Gail king about Kobe doesn’t slow down your momentum getting big deals like that, for telling the truth. You are paving the way for others looking for a break into mainstream from similar background. Thank you for helping your people Coast to Coast world wide. You give us hope. Thank you brotha, don’t stop.

I have been a fan for decades! One of the best days was when you came to Dallas several years ago and performed at a pavilion very close to my house. I could hear you from my balcony. It was the tits! I survived severe depression and a shit marriage. No matter how blue I got, your music always made me smile. Keep on keeping on! Much love, peace, and good wishes to you, Snoop!! ❤️✨❤️

I heard you on the Late Night With Jimmy when they asked you what you would have been if not a rapper and you said: “A Pastor”. Everyone laughed but I sat straight up in the bed because God told me and I knew that you were not kidding. Please don’t laugh this away. I am a 74 year old pastor and seminary professor who would like to talk with you for about 10 minutes. I don’t know if this message will even get to you but I am praying that it will. I can be reached at (804) 307-1904.

I have never used urban dictionary more than when I listen to your songs. DO it Fluid? Delsym? Alcohol? I, like, have to know what the guy is tripping on.
