Before Calvin Courdosa Roudus would change his name to Snoop Dog and briefly to Snoop Lion and then Snoop Zilla, neither of which ever really caught on.
Before Snoop Dog Would Collaborate with everyone from Swizz Beats, Kanye West, John Legend, Wiz Khalifa, to Willie Nelson and Katy Perry.
Before Snoop Dog Picked up an AVN Award for Top Selling Porno of the Year for his work as producer on Doggystyle.
Before he appeared in films like Half Baked, Training Day, Starsky & Hutch and Old School.
Snoop got his first taste of the lime light as a choir boy and got his first job bagging groceries. He fell in love with music and became a high school legend but it wasn’t till the a relative of famed NWA member Dr. Dre hooked the two up and Snoop became Dr. Dre’s right hand man.
Debuting on Dr. Dre’s 1992 multiplatinum The Chronic performing on more than half of the album, Snoop followed with the release of Doggystyle, which set a new record as the then-biggest selling rap album but all this success almost disappeared as quickly as it arrived with him facing 25 years to life in prison on murder charges.
My name is Michael McCrudden, documenting the life of Snoop Dog prior to fame, here for you on Before They Were Famous.
