Meet Snoop Dogg's Children
"It's the one and only D-O double G Big Snoop Dogg" The chart-topping hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg is most famous for his easy-going character and hit songs. Many are unaware, however, of his private life as a husband, father, and grandfather. Here, we give you a detailed description of his children, grandchildren, and current and past relationships.
BEHIND SNOOP DOGG'S STAGE NAME
Before the rapper coined his stage name Snoop Dogg, he was born as Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. on the sunny side of California. The Long Beach native is currently only 48 years old and had an early start to his career at only 19 years old. He did not start as a struggling artist, he made fame the moment he debuted.
THE GOOD DOCTOR WITH AN EYE FOR TALENT, DR. DRE
Snoop can thank Dr. Dre for launching his career, just like with the case with Eminem. The good doctor picked Snoop to feature in his debut song, "Deep Cover" and later in his solo album, The Chronic. This was the catalyst that made him one of the most recognized rappers in the United States. Thank you Dr. Dre!
SNOOP DOGG'S IMPRESSIVE CAREER
The rapper's top hits include “Young, Wild And Free”, featuring Wiz Khalifa and Bruno Mars, his feature in Dr. Dre's “The Next Episode”, and “Drop It Like It’s Hot”, featuring the "Happy" singer, Pharrell Williams. His songs became such a hit that he won three Billboard Music Awards in 1994.
A HIP HOP ARTIST WITH HIS OWN FLAVOR
According to Billboard, he has three No.1 Hits, and 11 Top 10 Hits up his sleeves. He is respected amongst other artists for having "an ultra-smooth, laidback delivery" and "flavor-filled melodic rhyming". Kool Moe Dee refers to Snoop's use of vocabulary, saying he "keeps it real simple...he simplifies it and he's effective in his simplicity".
A MEDIA PERSONALITY LOVED BY MILLENIALS
Snoop is not only loved for his music, but for his humorous and laid-back character on screen. He produced his own sketch-comedy show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle and his own reality show called Snoop Dogg's Father Hood back in the 2000s. The American viewer, specifically those belonging to the younger demographics, immediately fell in love with his energy.
Dogg made internet sensation by teaming up with Jimmy Kimmel Live and starting their own nature series, Plizzanet Earth with Snoop Dogg. He is shown narrating short clips of intense moments in nature, such as the special all-reptile edition, "Iguana vs. Snakes". A Youtube comment with 9.6 thousand likes said, "I wish Snoop Dogg was the narrator on Discovery Channel."
CALVIN JUNIOR AND LAURIE HOLMOND
Now, aside from his media personality and career hits, Calvin Junior is also known for his past and current relationships. He has four children, one of whom is not from his current spouse Shante, but from Laurie Holmond. In fact, their kid is the youngest amongst Snoop's children, meaning there might have been some drama between the current married couple.
RAPPER AND HIS CURRENT WIFEY SHANTE BROADUS OF 23 YEARS
Shante is Snoop's high school sweetheart. They married in 1997 and have been together for a whopping 23 years. There was, however, a scuffle back in 2004 that almost led to a divorce. He shared with MTV, "I was trying to get a divorce, but I went back home and I fell back in love with my wife and kids.
ADMITTING FAULT AND MAKING EFFORTS TO 'GET BACK RIGHT'
Snoop further shared, "I don’t want to get a divorce. So if you hear about a divorce, it’ll be my wife divorcing me; it won’t be me divorcing her. And I made a mistake, so I’m trying to get back right." He does not share details regarding the mistake, but we are just glad they have found love again.
FATHER OF FOUR CHILDREN
Besides his love for his one and only Shante, Snoop's children were part of his decision to rip the divorce papers. He also seems to have an affinity for naming his three children with his initial, the letter "C". Here we give you all the details about his four children, some of which are not what you might have expected.
THE FIRST "C", CORDÉ BROADUS
Snoop's firstborn joined Dogg clan in 1994. Yes, he was born three years before the rapper and high school sweetheart tied the knot in 1997. He is also a father himself with two beautiful children. The 26-year-old is married to Soroya Love who's one year his senior and the mother of their baby girl Eleven.
TWO CHILDREN FROM TWO RELATIONSHIPS
Cordé has two children, but both have different mothers. Snoop Dogg's firstborn became a father before meeting his wife when his ex Jessica Kyzer gave birth to Zion in 2015. That means Snoop became a grandfather when he was just 45 years old! Also, who wouldn't want to have the West Coast rapper as their grandfather?
THE SECOND "C", CORDELL IS ALSO A DAD
The artist's second son who is only 23-years-old has also followed his brother's footsteps. Cordell welcomed his daughter Lulu in 2019 with his partner, Phia Barragan. The social media influencer featured in one of Cordell's music video back in 2017, with even her father-in-law chipping in with some smooth bars.
A DAD, BUSINESSMAN, AND MODEL
Lulu's dad seems to have a tight schedule running a streetwear shop, record label, and even modeling for big fashion brands. He was recently seen walking the runway for Tommy Hilfiger. According to WWD, Cordell Broadus left behind his career as a football player to become the creative and entrepreneur he is today.
THE LAST "C" AND DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL, CORI
The Broadus family's youngest and only daughter Cori was born on June 22, 1999. Cori "Choc" Broadus grew up as daddy's little girl but she also had her own gig going at an early age. In fact, she started earlier than her father. Her first official single release dates back in 2012 when she was only 13 years old.
"C" FOR CHOC AND "C" FOR CURVY
The 20-year-old has recently expanded her tastes to fashion as well. Cori B recently snapped and posted a picture wearing the popular clothing brand, Fashion Nova Curve. The world is excited to see more from this young potential woman. The sky's the limit!
JULIAN CORRIE BROADUS
Remember Snoop has three children with Shante. His last and youngest son in and out of the family, however, is Julian Corrie Broadus. This young fellow likes to keep things out of the spotlight. He does not have any social media whatsoever and is adamant about protecting his privacy.
Julian was born in 1998, a year before Cori his half-sister. While all of the rapper's three children featured in Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, Julian seems to have made the call not to appear along with his half-siblings. At the end of the day, however, Julian is still a beloved son of the iconic rap star.
ALL ABOUT SNOOP DOGG'S GRANDCHILDREN
Zion, Eleven, and Lulu have currently stolen the hearts of their grandparents Shante and Calvin. Zion who is already five years of age seems to be a sweet big brother to Eleven despite being half-siblings. The world can't wait to see how Cordé and Cordell's daughters grow up as cousins!
There was a tragic loss for Snoop Dogg's first son, Cordé. After welcoming Zion into the world and then marrying his current wife Soroya Love, the wedded couple welcomed a son a year after their daughter was born. They named him Kai Love and were able to spend ten days with him in the hospital before Kai passed away.
Kai passed away peacefully on September 25th, 2019 due to a heart defect. The baby boy's grandmother Shante honored the life of her fifth grandchild by singing The Dells' "The Love We Had Stays on My Mind." The grandfather and rapper turned to his faith and chose "to trust God", according to his Instagram post.
WHAT IS SNOOP UP TO NOW?
The iconic rapper has recently been working on a new project, a clothing line, to be exact. (Spoiler: the clothes definitely scream, "This is something Snoop would wear"). In addition, the businessman and artist is soon to release a new collaboration with Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, known professionally as YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
The “Young, Wild And Free” rapper recently landed a radio show on Apple Music along with Ciara and Young M.A. He recently released "I Wanna Go Outside" during the lockdown in May and "Nipsey Blue" released this August 2020. He has an upcoming event in the first week of September at the Borgata Event Center in New Jersey.
Aside from being one of the most recognized and iconic rappers in modern music history, Snoop Dogg has shown to be an exceptional and devoted husband and father. Raising four children in and out of his current marriage is no hard feat. Snoop Dogg seems to have done an exceptional job, as all four have bright and happy lives ahead.
