Snoop Dogg Biography
Review The Artist (18)
No other rapper has been able to carve such a distinct niche in hip hop's diverse and expansive history as Snoop Dogg. His flow is like a Southern breeze on a lazy Sunday afternoon - soothing in its feel, sturdy in its power. We've all witnessed the curly-headed, lyrical phenomenon from 21st Street in Long Beach evolve and fortify into a grown man, now just as concerned with his business as he is with his lyrics - his game as healthy and expanding as his straightened head of hair.
The Doggfather is now bringing his collection of classics to arenas across America as a headliner on Dr. Dre's "Up in Smoke 2000" tour. Snoop will join Tray Deee and Goldie Loc of his newly formed group Tha Eastsidaz, Eminem, Warren G, Xzibit, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Ice Cube, Mack 10, WC, and others on a tentative 39-city, seven-week tour to show audiences across the nation how the West coast rocks.
His set includes joints from his upcoming No Limit/Priority Records album, Tha Last Meal, due in stores this fall and featuring production from Dr. Dre, Battlecat, Meech Wells, Timbaland, Jellyroll, Fredwreck and Swizz Beats, and Snoop recently completed shooting his long-awaited New Line cinema produced horror-flick "Bones," set to hit theaters later this year. In perhaps his most rewarding accomplishment, Snoop has started his own label, ---------- Records, which offers its artists 100 percent of their publishing rights. "You won't see that in no record label that I've dealt with," says Snoop. "Me giving it to the artist is something special because I feel like if you write your songs and create that atmosphere, you should be compensated for it." ---------- artists include Tha Eastsidaz, Kokane, Butch Cassidy and a female rap trio, Doggy's Angels. The label also has a film division entitled Snoopadelic Films, another gratifying achievement considering Snoop's personal love of motion pictures. The company's
first release will be "The Eastsidaz," a straight-to-video film featuring himself, Tray Deee and Goldie Loc.
For fans interested in Snoop's long and bumpy path to the present day, Snoop detailed his life story in his autobiography, "Tha Doggfather." Written with Davin Scay,the project required a self-analysis that few people are willing to undertake. "I had to go back to my childhood and the things that made me upset, and made me who Iam," says Snoop. "I also had to expose the bad things about myself that caused me to have that bad reputation when I first came out. But it's all a part of life. I was willing to reveal it and share it with the public."
Between his numerous projects, Snoop manages to squeeze in a weekly radio show at The Beat in Los Angeles that has just picked up national syndication in 14 U.S. markets and counting. His air-shift sizzles with his favorite old-school r&b and hip hop joints, as well as world premiere releases of his own material.
Snoop Dogg has already accomplished what many rap artists will never achieve. The sheer resiliency of his 28-year hustle has made hip hop's own "King of All Media" currently available in record stores, movie theaters, book stores, syndicated radio, and recently in concert, C-walking across a stage near you. Snoop admits his newfound focus on matters other than rhyming was sparked by Master P taught me," says Snoop. "Now I'm taking what he taught me, putting it to use with my personal knowledge and just trying to be the best artist in the game."
Born Calvin Broadus, October 20, 1972, Long Beach, California

Redeem yourself | Reviewer: david | 2/9/10
Well if the devil has all the best tunes then how come he made Snoop deliver all this shit then? As far as selling his soul to the devil, sure there is a deal out there, but be warned the price is very very high, some would say too high. The reason all the rappers who sold out to the Devil don't mess with God is that the devil is scared shitless of God. The devil is only interested in using Snoop's music to get young people to hate each other and the World. Poppin,Drugs,Whores, its all getting nasty!!
When you sign the deal you kill the old you, and then the devil uses you as his own, you have no free will. So be warned!!

"tha truth" | Reviewer: lashonda harp | 12/10/09
hello snoop!This is the way i feel about satan,alot of people say they will die for what they believe in.Bullshyt satan is the only one who stood up to GOD and going to die for what he believe in.It might seem's evil but we all make decsion's in life that can cost us a ticket to hell so why are we so different from satan.If i die and go to hell it won't be no lost to see heaven because i can't wake up praising any one all day long,i'm just being real i'm also not scared to say i have evil in me to and i ain't mad about it.be for real alot of people say the devil is the one doing evil let's think for one minute the devil can't do nothing unless GOD let him(JOB)read it,the devil asked GOD can he touch JOB in so many way's.GOD let him if satan so evil why GOD let him live for so long is this a game and we losing i use to be so blind about what is real and what people want u to believe.In the old testament after noah GOD made a promise not to destroy the world again,but in the new testament the people that was prophet in it say it would and it would be firer it shock's me how people want this world to end and ain't ready to die just go to heaven and kiss bird's and sing song everyday thanking GOD day after day and then if they don't want to no more go to hell.well i don't hate satan no more then i hate GOD i never heared satan side of the story at all so how can i judge him when i don't know who is doing what when it comes down to it.fair is fair and if i have to burn for what i believe in then blaze me like a joint get high off knowlegde and lead by being a leader,and we know what that mean when u stand up to what you believe in death we just read about satan why is one men is so strong we was taught to hate him and love GOD and what ever him and GOD went threw have nothing to do with me.If i want to say i rather walk on the darkside so people say then so be it,the only reason people so scared to talk like this because GOD said fear me!so we do because i was never scared of satan i was scared od what GOD would let him do to me.If i didn't praise him,but now i'm not scared of neither i feel sorry for how long this good and evil thing between them two now it's everybody problem they fighting for soul's how sayed i tell u what GOD can have my good side the devil can have my bad side after that then what?we are blind about who is behind all this evil.GOD seen all of this before there was a satan and he still created and him and satan playing a game so deep Jesus don't even know what he really died for.what do you really gain after all these century of chasing soul's just to burn them to prove he can stop this at anytime!somebody love this game of good and evil the real quetion is who.who have all power who!who created evil in the first place who!who first named this evil who!who birth evil not satan he found out about it from who!the devil did not create nothing he is not the creater of evil.once he found out about the evil tree GOD got upset because he had some evil thought's for a men to let ur soul burn forever what thought is that.who thought about that and how long was that a plan before adam and eve ever ate off that tree GOD put it there and knew what was gonna happen people think for urself for once who crated this who!and why!Did satan find out a little to much about GOD and now he was the one who created evil(no)this was created from the one and only GOD we just in the middle of one of the biggest unknown who until it ain't funny they need to make up and move on and respect other's belief.no one know's the truth but GOD and SATAN and it's sayed how people try so hard to prove who is right for him to be so evil GOD let him live so long until when he do die what really is the lesson when we die we just dead until judgement day to answer (why we evil) something GOD created and he know we gonna fail.i research a lot of thing's when it comes to GOD and the devil we like insect's take chances on life roll a coin and prey it goes god way if not he got a brother who will accept u tha way u are.(a sinner)with with a soul that'
s in trouble because i find no fault in satan after all who created him who!Being real is to take ur punishment like a warrior because we at war with GOD and SATAN and they will kill anyone who get's in there way even (JESUS)GOD is gonna raise the dead just to punish people who already had it hard just to burn them forever because when they was here they didn't serve him and the rest of us can go to heaven with no problem and soon as u have one thought of ur own boom it's over and what gonna happen when there is no one to fight on earth no more another war in heaven a new devil is made to be frame for all this evil.who is at fought here why people can't see this u know why because they scared to question what really happen in heaven remember what grandma said it's to good to be true.How funny will it be to be judge by a person who created all this and to be judge for what he created and knew that people wasn't gonna serve him only and he still created it all,who is really evil who?
dont be too naive | Reviewer: Grimzillah | 9/12/09
If you really want his biography go on www.wikipedia.org... and before you believe all this shit about selling his soul to the devil you should know that people who do gangster rap, talk about killin each other and i think that if you can talk about killing someone then you can talk about preety much anything you want... so can you judge them from what they say???... a lot of rappers are accused of selling their soul to the devil but the irony is that if they really have sold their soul to the devil and they got the power to say anything they want... how come I have never heard them speak ill about god? how come i have never heard a single bad thing about god??? dont be so naive and so prejudice to them for what they do.
