Film Earnings

Snoop Dogg has directed some adult films. He used pseudonyms like Snoop Scorcese and Michael J. Corleone.

He has also appeared in numerous TV shows and films, taking up fictional roles and acting as himself. Snoop launched his career on the screen when he made a cameo appearance on “Half Baked”(1998). He also co-starred with fellow marijuana enthusiasts Wiz Khalifa on the 2012 film “Mac & Devin go to High School”. In 2012, the movie earned about $6 million.

Income From Endorsements and Businesses

He has a number of endorsements, including, Chrysler 200, St. Ides, Boost Mobile and Orbit Gum. Snoop also signed a 3-year endorsement contract with Colt 45 in 2011. The deal saw him promote the brand’s fruit-flavored beer, Blast.

As the brand ambassador, Snoop DJed a number of Pabst (Colt 45 parent company) parties, played concerts sponsored by Pabst Brands, and made live appearances. Once, he was given a one-time upfront fee of $250,000. Every time he mentioned the brand on social media 10 times, he got $20,000.

However, Snoop’s partnership with Pabst turned sour in late 2015 after the company was sold to Blue Ribbon for $700 million. Snoop filed a lawsuit against Pabst stating that he was entitled to 10% of net sales Pabst made from the sale of the Blast malt beer which he promoted. The company claimed otherwise, leading to a year-long court battle. Both parties reached an out-of-court settlement in late 2016.

As an entrepreneur, Snoop has his own brand of hot dogs as well as investments in several companies like investment firm Casa Verde Capital.

His Interests and Investments in Marijuana

Snoop is a big proponent of marijuana. He has an investment in a weed-delivery start-up called “Eaze”. It has been dubbed the “Uber for Weed” as it has its own app from which you can make orders for your brand of weed.

In a bid to enlighten the masses on the benefits of marijuana, Snoop has launched a website merryjane.com which contains news, business guidance, and insights about marijuana, call it the Weed Wikipedia. The idea has already received an endorsement from celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Seth Rogen. The website will also provide a network of legal cannabis shops and customers.

Snoop is positive his business decision on marijuana would turn out well as he speculates that marijuana would be made legal in at least 20 states in the space of 2 years.

Though music has immensely contributed to Dogg’s net worth. Only time will tell how much his marijuana business will contribute to his wealth. Currently, his net worth stands at $143 million.

Meet Snoop Dogg’s Family

Snoop Dogg was born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. on October 20, 1971, in Long Beach, California, to Beverly Broadus (née Tate) (mother) and Vernell Varnado (father). His zodiac sign is Libra.

Not long after Snoop was born, his father, a mail carrier, Vietnam veteran and a singer, abandoned his young family, leading to his mother marrying again. That was how the “Tha Doggfather” hitmaker grew up without his biological father Vernell playing significant roles in his life as a young boy.

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. was named after his stepfather Calvin Cordozar Broadus Sr. by his mother after her second marriage in 1970. Until his death on November 9, 1985, Calvin Sr. and Snoop’s mother were married for just five years.

Also, Calvin got his nickname “Snoop” from his mother who jokingly claimed that the rapper bore a striking resemblance to ‘Snoopy’, a character from the Peanuts cartoon.

While Snoop’s biological father has since reunited with his family, his mother Beverly, a minister and a choir director, is now an evangelist who shared everything about her faith in her tell-all books titled Real Love (2012) and Real Love II: The Story of an Extraordinary Woman (2014).

Dogg has an elder brother (Jerry) and a younger brother (Bing Worthington Jr.). Calvin’s half-brothers came from his mother’s relationships with two different men. Like their rapper brother, they are well known and have been in the spotlight on various occasions. The eldest, Jerry Wesley Carter, is a product of Beverly’s love affair with Harold Carter (a sailor). He was born on September 16, 1969, and is two years older than Snoop. Jerry currently resides in Pomona, California.

The youngest, Bing Worthington Jr. came from Beverly’s relationship with Bing Crosby Worthington Sr. Bing arrived on May 4, 1979. Presently, he’s working on his new record label in Canada and was previously Snoop’s tour manager.

Calvin, as Dogg is fondly called at home, is said to be 23% Native American, 71% African and 6% European descent, as indicated by a DNA test read by George Lopez on Lopez Tonight.

Things You Should Know About His Wife and Kids

Simply put, Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus are specially made for each other. The high school sweethearts have stayed together for over twenty years and still counting.

Dogg and Shante (nee Taylor) got married at a lavish wedding held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California on June 14, 1997.

And though the lovebirds have been able to join few other bigwigs in the entertainment industry who have managed to celebrate decades in their wedding anniversary, they’ve also had their fair share of marital crisis.

Snoop Dogg's Family

Seven years after their high-class wedding ceremony, their love boat hit the rock when Snoop filed for divorce, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. Nevertheless, the respected rapper later called off the divorce, and instead, organized a surprise ceremony on January 12, 2008, where they renewed their wedding vows in front of 200 guests.

Shante, fondly called the Boss Lady, has three children (two sons and a daughter) for Snoop, who she had been with even before his fortune rose to $135 million. The names of their sons are Corde Broadus, Cordell Broadus and Cori Broadus.

Corde Calvin Broadus was born in 1994. Nicknamed ‘Spank’ by his father, Corde is a talented footballer who also loves smoking and doing drugs. He turned down a football scholarship by UCLA in favour of pursuing a music career like his father. Sometime in January 2015, he became a father after he and his long-time girlfriend, Jessica Kyzer, welcomed their first child – making his famous rapper father a grandfather.

Like his elder brother, Cordel born in 1997 has all it takes to become a football legend but he ditched football for acting, even after joining the UCLA Bruins.

Fondly called ‘Choc’ by his father, Snoop’s only daughter, Cori Broadus (born 1999) is already a music star. She launched her music career in 2011 and has also dropped several singles, including ‘Do My Thang’, which was one of her earliest singles. Cori, we can confirm, is doing well, after a major health set back in 2011 when she was diagnosed with Lupus.

Snoop also has a secret son (Julian Corrie Broadus) whom he fathered with his former high school sweetheart Laurie Holmond. Julian was born in 2007. He plans to follow in his father’s footstep by becoming a singer.

Snoop’s Friendship and Special Bond with Martha Stewart

To Stewart, friendship with famous rapper Snoop Dogg is one of the best things that has happened to her. Dogg and Martha share a special bond that dates as far back as 2008 when both starred on the latter’s show Martha.

Thereafter, the friends continued to keep up with each other until in 2016 when they appeared again together on an episode of “$100,000 Pyramid”.

Stewart has never shied away from admitting how special Dogg is. Sometime in 2014, she admitted in Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” (“AMA”) that she wished she was a better friend with the rapper.

Currently, famous marijuana aficionado Snoop and his long-standing friend, Martha are co-hosting the new VH1 cooking show Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party and there’s no sign they are separating any time in the near future, as the natural love and understanding between them have continued to grow year after year.

When he was a boy, the rapper's mother nicknamed him "Snoopy" after the Peanuts cartoon character. This was not only as a result of his love for the character but also because his mother thought he shared a resemblance with the Snoopy character.

Snoop's biggest hit was his debut album, Doggystyle, released in 1993. The album which debuted at number one on both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts sold nearly one million copies within the first week of its release and became certified quadruple platinum in 1994.

In August 1993, Snoop Dogg and his bodyguard were arrested for the murder of Philip Woldemariam, a member of a rival gang who was shot to death by Snoop's bodyguard while the rapper drove the car from which the gun was fired. Luckily for both men, they were eventually acquitted.
