Biography

Long Beach, California, United States (1992 – present)

Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr. (born October 20, 1971 in Long Beach, California, United States), better known by his stage name Snoop Dogg, is a Grammy award nominated rapper, producer and actor. Snoop is best known as a famous MC in the West Coast hip hop scene, and for being one of producer Dr. Dre’s most notable protégés. He made his rap debut in 1992 on Dre’s debut album The Chronic, and then released his debut album, Doggystyle, to much critical and public acclaim. His mother nicknamed him “Snoopy” as a child, and he took the stage name Snoop Doggy Dogg when he began recording. He changed his name to Snoop Dogg in 1996 when he left his original record label, Death Row Records, and signed with No Limit Records.

He has been affiliated with the Crips, a U.S. street gang. Several of his cousins, including RBX, Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, and Warren G are also hip hop artists and often collaborate with Snoop. In 2000, Snoop (as “Michael J. Corleone”) directed Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle, a pornographic film produced by Hustler. This film, combining hip-hop with X-rated material, was a huge success and won “Top Selling Release of the Year” at the 2002 AVN Awards. Driven by this success, Snoop directed Snoop Dogg’s Hustlaz: Diary of a Pimp in 2002 (this time using the nickname “Snoop Scorsese”).

As a rapper, he is perhaps best known for his “lazy drawl” — a slurred, distinctively calm, laid-back, and rhythmically-complex lyrical delivery. His lyrics have often been criticized for their glorification of misogyny, violence and gangsterism; however, he is often credited for accurately portraying street slang and attitudes.

    Ни рыба, ни мясо. Шубки, очечи, цепочки и прочая "гламурная" хуйня. Если не Dre, так и бы сидел на днище. И до сих пор не понятно, почему во многих списках лучших rap альбомов проскакивает Doggystyle? Наверное, всё благодаря тому же Dre.

    У него такое доброе лицо - умиляешься прям. С музыкой дело обстоит как-то не очень. Первый альбом слушать можно, хотя мне не всё понравилось в нём, а дальше только отдельными композициями.

    ...yet he's managed some very listenable albums since Doggystyle nonetheless - Tha Last Meal and Paid Tha Cost in particular are excellent, No Limit Top Dogg is overlong but contains some of the best g-funk of the late '90s and pretty much all of his '00s efforts are solid.
