Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., known by his stage names Snoop Doggy Dogg, Snoop Dogg, and later Snoop Lion, is an American rapper, singer-songwriter, and actor.

Snoop has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

His music career began in 1992 when he was discovered by Dr.

Dre.

He collaborated on Dre's solo debut The Chronic, and on the theme song to the feature film Deep Cover.

Snoop's debut album, Doggystyle, was released in 1993 under Death Row Records, debuting at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts.

Selling almost a million copies in the first week of its release, Doggystyle became certified 4× platinum in 1994 and spawned several hit singles, including "What's My Name" and "Gin & Juice".

In 1994, Snoop released a soundtrack on Death Row Records for the short film Murder Was The Case, starring himself.

His second album Tha Doggfather, also debuted at No. 1 on both charts with "Snoop's Upside Ya Head" as the lead single.

The album was certified double platinum in 1997.

After leaving Death Row, Snoop signed with No Limit Records, where he recorded his next three albums.
