  5. Snoop started rapping at the age of 11! He recorded homemade tapes with his friends, including the late Nate Dogg. One of his tapes caught the attention of producer Dr. Dre. The discovery led to him being featured in Dre’s solo album, “The Chronic” and launched Snoop Dogg’s career.
  6. One of his great friends is David Beckham. Clearly a fan of the soccer playing legend, Snoop makes sure to run all of his tracks through David Beckham before releasing them. He says that David just seems to know what will be a hit and what won’t.snoop-dogg-david-beckham
