Everybody Loves Snoop

Snoop Dogg’s come a long way. Once considered one of rap’s most controversial artists, the Dogfather has managed to become the rapper soccer moms know without sacrificing his edge.

Snoop seems to be exempt from hip-hop’s perpetually judgmental attitude. No one can party with Paris Hilton, cook with Martha Stewart, smoke a blunt with Willie Nelson, appear on soap opera One Life to Live, play with Muppets onSesame Street, turn around and make a gangsta record and get away with it. Only Snoop.

In conjunction with the release of Doggumentary, XXL takes a look at how broad Snoop’s appeal has become over the years. —Carl Chery

    Word bond, you gotta love a cat like Snoop. Does anyone even remember that the day Doggystyle dropped, dude had a murder charge staring him in the grill?

    Snoop Dog sucks!
    He showed up 4 hours late and did nothing when he came. I felt bad for the producers of the show…..they were trying so hard to hype up the crowd, but Snoop Dog was just lame. People paid money on your new album, Snoop….they paid money for a show….WTF!!

    It’s cool to see Snoop doing his thing but I would rather hear Snoop back on his G-Funk. The industry needs soul right now….Black Soul.

    Man people love Snoop because he doesn’t compromise anything about himself in anything he does. The most positive and genuine people always get love from everyone because theirs nothing to criticize about them that they don’t already acknowledge and joke about themselves. Snoop is a sage that will continue to be respected and admired for generations.
