Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. (born October 20, 1971) is an American rapper, composer, media personality, actor, and entrepreneur best known as Snoop Dogg (formerly Snoop Doggy Dogg and briefly Snoop Lion). His career began in 1992, when he appeared on Dr. Dre’s debut solo song, “Deep Cover,” and later on The Chronic, Dre’s debut solo album. Since then, Broadus has sold over 23 million records in the United States and 35 million albums globally.
Snoop Dogg has just assumed control of a well-known musical firm. But how much is he worth now that he’s made such a large purchase?
The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” hitmaker has purchased Death Row Records, the label that launched his illustrious career 30 years ago.
The 49-year-old bought MNRK Music Group outright.
The contract’s details were not made public at the time of writing, but it brought him back to his roots.
Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, Dick Griffey, and the DOC created Death Row Records, which immediately became one of the industry’s top labels.
The organization was responsible for launching a number of culturally significant performers, including Tupac Shakur, the late rapper, and pop culture icon, along with Snoop.
Snoop Dogg now controls the company. The company had been struggling financially for some years before declaring bankruptcy in 2006 and being purchased at auction by WIDEawake Entertainment three years later. Before passing into Snoop Dogg’s hands, Death Row Records passed through several hands. Despite the fact that Snoop departed Death Row under a cloud and went on to sign with No Limit Records, Capitol, and Def Jam after leaving the label, the hip-hop icon is claimed to be pleased to be back where it all began.
In a statement he issued, he said: “It feels nice to be the owner of a label that I was a founding member of at the start of my career. This is a significant event in my life.”
“I’d want to thank the teams at Blackstone, MNRK, and especially David Kestnbaum, who collaborated with me over several months to make this joyful homecoming a reality,” he continued
Snoop Dogg has a net worth of $20 million as of 2022.
Not only is the 49-year-old professional rapper a rapper, but he’s also an actor.
According to Wealthy Gorilla, Snoop Dogg, whose true name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., has a net worth of $150 million.
