NET WORTH: $135 MILLION
How Much Is Snoop Dogg Worth?
Calvin Cordozar “Snoop Dogg” Broadus, Jr., has an estimated net worth of $135 million. The laid-back rapper followed in the footsteps of such West Coast colleagues as Ice Cube and Ice-T, and added acting to his repertoire in the late ’90s. Raised in Long Beach and nicknamed Snoop due to his resemblance to Peanuts’ top canine. As the embodiment of ’90s gangsta rap, Snoop Dogg blurred the lines between reality and fiction. Introduced to the world through Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, Snoop quickly became the most famous star in rap, partially because of his drawled, laconic rhyming and partially because the violence that his lyrics implied seemed real, especially after he was arrested on charges of being a murder accomplice. The arrest certainly strengthened his myth, and it helped his debut album, 1993’s Doggystyle, become the first debut album to enter the charts at number one.
