Whether it’s due to his music or some of the other aspects of Snoop Dogg’s life, you won’t go too long without hearing his name mentioned somewhere on the wide media spectrum. Recently, Snoop may be trying to change the public’s perception of him through talk show appearances, endorsements, and most prominently through his new reality show, Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood, which premiered on the E! cable channel last December.
Despite this, his notoriety continues to precede him, which only seemingly serves to increase his popularity with his loyal fans, many of which have followed his career since his contributions on Dr. Dre’s legendary The Chronic (Death Row, 1992). The truth is that Snoop is very talented and possesses a unique aura about him that many interpret as charisma.
While his musical career has not been all gin and juice, he’s been able to etch his name in the pantheon of rap legends, and he is always looking to extend his influence into other venues of entertainment.
Snoop will make no bones about it, though; it’s tough being him. “There’s so much that’s expected from me—whether it’s good or bad or just as a role model or as a musician or whatever I do—I’m expected to be the best at it at all times,” Snoop explained.
