Snoop Lion Net Worth $120 Million

Snoop Lion is the middle child of Vernell Varnado, who was a Vietnam veteran and musician, and Beverly Tate, but as his father left the family, he was named after his stepfather, Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Sr. He earned his nickname “Snoop” from his appearance when he was a child. He started to sing and play the piano at the Golgotha Trinity Baptist Church, and when he was in sixth grade, he transferred to rap music. In his teens, Snoop Lion was very problematic and had a number of legal issues, as he was a member of the gang Rollin’ 20 Crips in the East side of Long Beach. Right after he matriculated from the Long Beach Polytechnic High School in 1989, he was arrested for cocaine possession, and was in-and-out of jail during the next three years. After that he began to record homemade tapes with several friends, and in no time his career began.

He auditioned for Dr. Dre, who recognized his talents and engaged Snoop to work on his album “The Chronic”. Concurrently, Snoop also worked on his debut album, entitled “Doggystyle”, which came out in 1993, and which reached No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart, achieving four time platinum status with sales of more than seven million. Encouraged by this immense success, Snoop continued to produce music, and his second album, “Tha Doggfather”, which came out three years later, also topped the charts, and achieved double platinum status, increasing Snoop`s net worth by a large margin.

In the following years Snoop continued to dominate the music scene by releasing albums, with every single one of them achieving at least a platinum status, increasing further his net worth. Some of the albums are “Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told” (1998), which also reached No. 1, “No Limit Top Dogg” (1999), “Tha Last Meal” (2000), “R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece” (2004), and “Tha Blue Carpet Treatment” (2006). Since then his popularity has declined somewhat, however, albums such as “Malice n Wonderland” (2009), “Doggumentary” (2011), and “Reincarnated” (2013) have also added to his net worth.

To speak further of his accomplishments, Snoop has released an album “Bush” in 2015, and he is currently working on the album “Cool Aid” which will be released on 1st July 2016.
Snoop has also had several notable appearances as an actor, in such films and TV series as “Training Day” (2001), “Old School” (2003), and “Scary Movie 5” (2013), which only increased his net worth, and he will also appear in films “Future World”, and “Spoken Mirrors”, which are in post-production in mid-2016.
Apart from his successful as a musician, his business ventures have also increased his net worth; he founded Doggy Style Records, Inc. through which he has released his own albums, but also launched the career of several other musicians. Furthermore, he also started “Leafs By Snoop”, which is basically products based on cannabis, including concentrates, flowers and edibles.

Speaking about his personal life, he was known by the stage name Snoop Dogg until 2012, when he converted to the Rastafarian Movement, and changed his name to Snoop Lion. He was married to Shante Taylor from 1997 to 2004, when they divorced, but in January of 2008 they remarried; the couple has three children.
