Calvin was born in California, in 1971. His legal issues started right after graduating highs school. After getting arrested with drugs several times, the would-be rap star ended up in prison. He started his hip-hop career, which eventually boosted Snoop Dogg net worth to millions of dollars, as a way out of his former lifestyle. In the early 1990s Calvin met rap legend Dr. Dre, which helped him sign his first music contract.
Snoop Dogg net worth shot to the sky right after the release of Doggystyle. The album topped Billboard 200 and went on to receive 4x Platinum certificate from the Recording Industries Association of America. With tracks like “What’s My Name”, “Doggy Dogg World” and “Juice an Jin”, it remains Soop’s most commercially successful album to date. His second album, which featured such singles as “Snoop’s Upside Your Head”, “Doggfather” and “Vapors”, sold nearly 480 thousand copies the week after release. During the rest of his music career, which now spans over two decades, Snoop has released 12 studio and 17 compilation albums, 20 mixtapes and 126 singles.
After establishing himself as a successful hip-hop recording artist, Snoop ventured into the movie industry. So far he had leading roles in six movies: Murder Was the Case, Bones, The Wash, Mac & Devin Go to High School and High School. As a voice actor he featured on the films Malibu’s Most Wanted, Racing Stripes, Arthur and the Invisibles, Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder and Turbo.
Each of these movies has increased Snoop Dogg net worth by greater or smaller sum. Although back in his youth the artist believed that work and career could serve him as the way out of his legal troubles, this did not happen. During the early 1990s he was convicted twice: once for having an illegal gun and once for cocaine possession. In 1996 Snoop faced charges for murder, but was later pleaded not guilty. His legal problems continued well into the 2000s.
