Snoop Dogg has created his own enduring place in pop culture, starting with his embodiment of ’90s gangsta rap. His big break came thanks to N.W.A.’s Dr. Dre who was drawn to Snoop’s style. Dre had Snoop rap with him in 1992 on the theme song for the film “Deep Cover,” and then Dre’s debut album, The Chronic. Snoop’s 1993 release of Doggystyle was the first debut album to enter the charts at No. 1. His next album, 1996’s The Doggfather, began to change his public image moving away from gangsta roots and nodding towards the rock genre. The 2000s saw Snoop making the most of his vivid personality with an autobiography and appearances in several films. His 14th album, Coolaid, was released last year to positive reviews. As Snoop puts it: “Hip-hop is what makes the world go around.”
