Multi-platinum artist, actor and entertainment icon Snoop Dogg is at the forefront of popular culture with award-winning albums and songs, multiple films, lifestyle products, philanthropic efforts, and digital ventures, including his YouTube original series “GGN News.” Snoop Dogg has sold over 35 million albums worldwide and received multiple GRAMMY® nominations. Since 1993, he has released thirteen albums and collaborated with artists across all genres of music. Snoop defines hip-hop history. He’s set records with his seminal album Doggystyle, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 800,000 copies in the first week.
This past spring, Snoop released his 13th studio album, BUSH, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart, marking this as Snoop’s sixth chart topping hit. Entirely produced by Pharrell Williams, BUSH is a creative experience and cultural exploration that transports listeners through a journey of sight and sound. BUSH is Snoop’s first album on Columbia Records and features collaborations with Gwen Stefani, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross and T.I.
Snoop’s non-profit work in the community is commendable, as he established the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) in 2005 to give children between the ages of five and 13 the opportunity to participate in youth football and cheer. SYFL teaches them the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, discipline, and academics. Today, SYFL boasts 30 teams, more than 1,200 players and over 75 cheerleaders.
Most recently, Snoop has positioned himself as a savvy and forward-thinking leading in the tech space. In late 2015, Snoop launched MERRY JANE, a media platform which sits at the crossroads of pop culture, business, politics, health, and the new generation of normalized, sophisticated cannabis culture for all. He also recently unveiled his very own cannabis product line, “Leafs by Snoop,” which are currently available in dispensaries throughout Colorado.
