Snoop Dogg is widely recognized as one of the most beloved and influential rap artists in the history of the popular genre. Along with the long list of impressive feats in his career, the 50-year-old rapper, songwriter, media personality, actor, and entrepreneur has officially acquired Death Row Records, the record label that initially launched his career.

Born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, the talented rapper received the nickname “Snoopy” as a child from his parents, who noticed his love for the Peanuts character. Snoop developed a love for singing and rapping as a child, and by sixth grade, Snoop began rapping. His hard work eventually paid off when he released a solo freestyle that caught the attention of renowned rapper Dr. Dre. With several successful albums and countless business acquisitions and media appearances, Snoop Dogg has solidified his legacy as one of the greatest rappers alive today.

It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members. This is an extremely meaningful moment for me.

With this recent acquisition, Snoop’s total net worth is understandably expected to go up. Snoop is expected to also acquire a portion of the label’s music rights. It’s safe to say that Snoop Dogg won’t be struggling in the bank any time soon.
