"Love goes unappreciated a lot of times, but you still gotta keep giving it."
– Snoop Dogg
Born Calvin Broadus on October 20, 1971, in Long Beach, California, Snoop Dogg got his nickname from his mother because she thought he looked like the character in the Peanuts cartoon. His first album, Doggystyle (1993), climbed its way to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s hip-hop and Top 200 charts. Happy Birthday #SnoopDogg !! #UncleSnoop #LongBeach #WestCoastRappers
