Snoop Dogg was raised alongside his two brothers by their mother Beverly Broadus, while their father Vernall Varnado, a Vietnam veteran and a singer, left the family when Snoop Dogg was only three months old – this is why Snoop Dogg was named after Calvin Cordozar Broadus Sr. who was his stepfather, although his mother divorced Broadus Sr. in 1975.
Snoop Dogg started playing the piano and singing at a very early age, while he began rapping at the age of 12. During his teenage years he worked various jobs, including delivering newspapers to help his mother pay the bills and put food on the table, however, he was also a member of the gang Crips (although he denied this when talking to the police).
Upon matriculation in 1989, Snoop Dogg was arrested charged with cocaine possession, and the following three years saw him in and out of jail.
He launched his singing career when he, his two cousins and a friend, formed the group 213. When he started collaborating with Dr. Dre, he chose Snoop Doggy Dog as his stage name, and then in 1995 founded his own record label Doggy Style Records, Inc.

He is a huge fan of sports, and the teams he cheers for are the Los Angeles Dodgers (baseball), the Los Angeles Lakers (basketball), and the USC Trojans (football). Snoop Dogg is also a certified football coach, and once coached his son Cordell’s team.
Snoop Dogg smokes cannabis on a daily basis, and although he said he quit in 2002, he came back to it and today smokes around 80 blunts every day.
He claims that he worked as a pimp in 2003 and 2004, which would seem unlikely given his success in music.
