Rapper Snoop Dogg is one of the most famous protégé of the legendary Dr. Dre. Thanks to him, Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar, was able to break onto the big stage and become iconic musicians, actor and showman. Their aliases, the musician, according to him, obliged to my mother, who in childhood was called the little Calvin Snoopy. When the rapper began writing his first tracks, he took an extended alias Snoop Doggy Dogg in honor of the cartoon about a little black and white dog. The musician noted that children’s nicknames quite often stick to people tightly and actually be their new names.
Father Snoop Dogg, who was a Vietnam veteran, was active in music, playing tambourine in Church group Fabulous Vanardo Brothers. However, the future monster scenes actually didn’t know his father, because he abandoned the family when Calvin was only three months old. His real name Snoop Dogg was in honor of his stepfather, but the boy actually raised by a grandfather who replaced his father and became the main instructor. As mentioned by Snoop Dogg in his numerous interviews later, the fact that his father left the family, he was not embarrassed. He believes that this had a positive impact on his attitude towards children and family — he was firmly convinced that to be a parent you need to prepare, because it’s hard work, and throwing his children can never be.
As a child, Calvin showed their musical talents by participating in the Church choir. In addition, the boy loved to play the piano and rap began to read while still a student in the sixth grade. Despite an active musical life, in his youth, Snoop Dogg dreamed of becoming a football Manager.

Released in 1993, “Doggystyle” was a phenomenal success, because even before the album was received more than 1.5 million pre-orders. Immediately after this followed a scandal — at the ceremony “MTV” rapper was arrested on suspicion of the murder of Phil Woldemariam. Later the charges were dropped, because the man shot a security guard Snoop Dog in self-defense.
Two years after his debut, Snoop became the founder of his own label “Doggy Style Records”, and in 1996 released their second Studio album, dedicated to the legendary hip-hop the Tupac Sakura. Since 1998, the rapper worked with the label “No Limit Records” and deliberately shortened alias to Snoop Dogg.
