No Limit Records

Snoop Dogg is a GANGSTA Is this writer smart don't forget to mention his stint with no limit records. That was a huge deal in his carrere beacuse it was his secound label and it was ran by master p who showed him a whole new style —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.19.181.227 (talk) 03:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

You are right, this writer has completely omitted a lot of important info and made an unbelievable amount of mistakes. Paid the cost to be the boss was released after 3 albums had already been released with No limit. The "Murder was the Case" film was NOT about Snoop Dogg's trial, it was about a song from the "Doggystyle"
The timelines are wrong and Snoop Dogg's early years(213, first arrests etc, Warren G bringing him to Dr Dre) are not even mentioned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.207.47.60 (talk) 08:31, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Help

Can someone help with the Controversy section, I already did the section about his feud with Luke, and now it just needs everybody else he has feuded with on there. Mcanmoocanu 20:50, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone know where I can find more information about Snoop's coaching certification and his youth football league? I think it would be good if this page provided more info to readers about that. I think it's really great that he's helping the community like this.--Omidshahbazi11 (talk) 05:29, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Legal Issues

The Legal issues section is several years out of date and implies we are on the edges of our seats waiting for information from 2007. Don't tell me to be bold, the page is protected. 69.111.84.180 (talk) 06:33, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

The link for Sweden is broken, the link is wrongly for both the word Sweden and the word after. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.251.195.72 (talk) 00:50, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Could also be added about his collaboration with Gorillaz and his appearances both with them and on his own at Glastonbury 2010, June 2010 in the UK. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Suzloua (talkcontribs) 17:26, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

98-04?

I just happened to be browsing looking for something and I noticed there's a big gap. It's like he didn't exists between 98 and 04 which is obviously incorrect. Is there a reason for this? --HELLØ ŦHERE 18:12, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

The reason is because Snoop didn't rap profesinaly in the 90's. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.82.187.246 (talk) 02:26, 16 February 2011 (UTC)



Snoop Dogg (Calvin Cordozar Broadus) was a corpsmember in the California Conservation Corps in 1998 to 1999. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashmomoney (talkcontribs) 18:03, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Nation of Islam?

How on earth is Snoop Dogg a member of the Nation of Islam when he's so open about his drug and alcohol use, as well as fornication? I'm not contesting that he is or that he claims to be, but anyone familiar with NoI practices will be scratching their noggins over this, and if anyone is aware of a notable source addressing the issue that would be great to include. Wormwoodpoppies (talk) 19:12, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

It's true, my noggin is bleeding after all the scratching I've done wondering about the relationship between Snoop Doggy Dogg's incessant fornication and Snoop Doggy Dogg's participation in the Nation of Islam. --71.205.219.29 (talk) 08:04, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Visa

There are at least two instances where Snoop Dog's visa in referred to in a manner that leads one to believe the writer isn't aware what a visa is. One instance talks about his visa card being rejected when it seems they are actually referring to his travel visa. In another instance it says he is granted visa instead of granted a visa. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.80.38.47 (talk) 14:38, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Age

Snoop's official birth date is 1971, he even said it himself in a documentary. So please stop putting 1972. mcanmoocanu we need a solid source like the documentary mentioned above to get rid of the madness

... even month of birth date seems to be doubtful:
intro and overview states 1972-10-20,
but section "Early Life" states 1971-11-20 ...

Associated_acts

The list of "associated acts" in the infobox currently includes:

More names appear every day. Is there any way of limiting the list to those acts who are most closely associated? Is there any objective criteria we can apply?   Will Beback  talk  01:16, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

From the Musician Infobox page:

Associated_acts

This field is for professional relationships with other musicians or bands that are significant and notable to this artist's career.

This field can include, for example, any of the following:

  • For individuals: groups of which he or she has been a member
  • Other acts with which this act has collaborated on multiple occasions, or on an album, or toured with as a single collaboration act playing together
  • Groups which have spun off from this group
  • A group from which this group has spun off

The following uses of this field should be avoided:

  • Association of groups with members' solo careers
  • Groups with only one member in common
  • Association of producers, managers, etc. (who are themselves acts) with other acts (unless the act essentially belongs to the producer, as in the case of a studio orchestra formed by and working exclusively with a producer)
  • One-time collaboration for a single, or on a single song
  • Groups that are merely similar

Do any of these acts qualify?   Will Beback  talk  03:55, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

High School

"Snoop Dogg attended Long Beach Pornography High School and transferred to Lindhberg High School and was later convicted for cocaine trafficking and served six months at the Wayside County Jail."

This statement is incorrect. Snoop lived near downtown, well outside of Lindbergh's catchment area. Furthermore, Lindbergh is a junior high school. Why would he transfer from a high school to a junior high school? That doesn't make sense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.9.147.32 (talk) 03:55, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Birth year

There seems to be conflicting sources over Snoop Dogg's birth year. I removed three references that didn't verify this claim, leaving two that state he was born in 1971. According to Allmusic, he was born in 1972. Has this been brought up before? — Σxplicit 18:40, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Snoop's Real Name

What is Snoop Dogg's real name? Is it Cordozar or is it Calvin? Somebody tell me. The King Gemini (talk) 20:20, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

98-04

The reason why is because he didn't start in the 90's! Good Gosh! How many times do I have to say this! He started in 2000! Just like Nate Dogg, and Dr.Dre! If you don't belive me your lying! I was born in the 90's so I know! If he was rapping in the 90's, he would've been old skool! P.S. Jay-Z didn't start in the 90's! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.82.164.170 (talk) 03:27, 4 September 2010 (UTC) freak wat this dude jus said about snoop rappin in the 2000's SNOOP STARTED RAPPIN IN THE 90'S!!!!

No he didn't! Snoop started in 2000!

Basketball

How is it that this article mentions his interest in football and hockey but not basketball? He's well-known for loving basketball, and for being a really good player, but the word 'basketball' doesn't even appear on this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.241.77.220 (talk) 15:22, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Doggy Style Records

{{editsemiprotected}} Plese add the following to the article in the sections indicated:

  • 2.4 Tha Doggfather (1996-1997)
    • After Snoop Dogg was acquitted of murder charges on February 20, 1996, he and the mother of his son and their kennel of 20 pit bulls moved into a 5,000-square-foot home in the hills of Claremont, California and by August 1996 Doggy Style Records, a subsidiary of Death Row Records, signed The Gap Band's Charlie Wilson as one of the record label's first artists.[2]

WTF Prod.

There are too many errors in this wiki's article, i know the real Snoop Doggy Dog had ever seen what we said on his carreer, so, when we see for exemple too, that finding, on Youtube, the clip over,over-knowned in France, which called by my memories "Snoop Doggy Dog" (not sure) with mans who have been changing in Dobermans and some other dogs, it's IMPOSSIBLE...we can ask ourselves some questions about this guy and all the American rap Production, isn'it? ~_O
