Rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg, with his lazy drawl and gangster persona, became one of the most commercially successful artists in all of rap. Alongside artists like N.W.A., Tupac, and Ice-T, Snoop epitomizes West Coast hip-hop. Debuting in 1992 as a collaborator on Dr. Dre's 1992 multiplatinum The Chronic, Snoop followed soon after with the release of Doggystyle, which set a new record as the then-biggest selling rap album. Doggystyle entered the Billboard chart at #1 the first week of its release (the first debut album ever to do so). It featured to what have become some of Snoop Dogg’s classic songs, "What's My Name?" (#8 pop, #8 R&B, 1993) and "Gin & Juice" (#8 pop, #13 R&B, 1994). In 1996, with Dr. Dre no longer at the controls, Snoop dropped the chart-topping Tha Doggfather (#1 pop, #1 R&B).SNOOP FACT 101: Nicknamed Snoop by his mother because of his appearance, Calvin Broadus (born October 20, 1972) was raised in Long Beach, CA, where he frequently ran into trouble with the law. He found escape from a life of crime through music. Snoop began recording homemade tapes with his friend Warren G, stepbrother of N.W.A.'s Dr. Dre. When Warren G gave a tape to Dre, he was considerably impressed with Snoop's style and began collaborating with the rapper.
