So, what is Snoop Dogg’s net worth? Fans want to know and we’ve got some answers. Snoop was born Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr. in Long Beach, California, in 1971. Like Lil Wayne and P. Diddy, Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr. changed his name. We all know him as Snoop Dogg.
However, his nickname was given to him before he even broke into the music scene, and even before he started smoking grass!
His mother thought he looked like Snoopy from the Peanuts cartoon when he was younger, and that’s how the nickname got its legs. Interestingly, his childhood was a lot like Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Drake. He played the piano when he was younger and performed in his church choir.
He started rapping in middle school, and after high school, he was arrested multiple times for drug possession. He was also connected to the Rollin’ 20 Crips Gang. In search of a way out of his troubled life, Snoop started focusing more and more on music.
He recorded demos with his cousin Nate Dogg and friend Warren G as 213. One of the tracks got the attention of Dr. Dre, and he invited Snoop Doggy Dogg out for an audition. Snoop Dogg’s net worth was slowly growing.
After working with Dre on his ‘The Chronic’ album in 1992, Snoop started working on his own album. His debut studio album, Doggystyle, was released in 1993 by Death Row Records and Interscope Records.
The album debuted in the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and sold over 800,000 copies in its first week. A major success for a relatively new artist. It broke record after record and was often included in lists examining the top 100 rap albums of all time. The album sold over 11 million copies worldwide propelling Snoop Dogg’s net worth tenfold.
Three years later, Snoop released his second studio album, Tha Doggfather, and while it once again topped the charts, it didn’t have the same commercial success as his debut album. It sold over 400,000 copies in its first week, which is great, but 50% less than Doggystyle.
His numbers dropped from there, and his sixth studio album debuted in the number 12 spot, selling just a little over 100,000 copies in its first week.
Throughout the years, Snoop has released a total of 16 studio albums, and while the majority of them haven’t been as successful as his first three, he’s still one of the most popular rap artists in the world. He’s created a name for himself that’s bigger than the music, making several cameos in film and landing one endorsement deal after the other.
In November 2015, he joined the (legal) cannabis business by launching Leafs by Snoop. He was the first mainstream celebrity to make a brand out of cannabis products.
As of 2019, Snoop’s net worth is a reported $135 million, which makes him one of the richest rappers in the world. He is now in the same club as Jay Z, Kanye West, and
