Snoop Dogg, the Godfather of Rap, is instantly recognized when you hear the name. But how did he acquire his unusual name? His parents, believing he looked like Snoopy the beagle – a character in the comic strip Peanuts - had called him “Snoopy” when he was young. The moniker evolved to Snoop Dogg over time and became his worldwide identifier; however, he later changed it to Snoop Lion. Snoop Dogg’s real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., and he was born on October 20, 1971, in Long Beach, California. As a teenager, Broadus dealt drugs with his cousin Nate Dogg (RIP) and friend Warren G (Dr. Dre’s half-brother). With an IQ of 147, Snoop Dogg is considered one of the most intelligent gangster rap artists on the planet. The average IQ level throughout the world is said to be between 85 and 115, according to TheThings.com. Snoop Dogg is also a talented football player and was even offered a full athletic scholarship to play at the University of Nebraska, but he turned it down to pursue his music career. Broadus was first introduced to the music industry by his friend and producer, Dr. Dre. Snoop Dogg featured on Dre’s debut solo album, The Chronic (1992. His first album, Doggystyle (1993), reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard's hip-hop and Top 200 charts based on the singles "What's My Name" and "Gin and Juice." The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, making Snoop Dogg the second artist (after Dre) to have his album debut at the top of the charts. He has gone on to enjoy massive success in his career, selling over 35 million albums worldwide. He’s also an accomplished actor, appearing in movies such as Starsky & Hutch (2004), Training Day (2001), and Old School (2003). Don’t miss out on this world tour, and track your favorite artists!
