Snoop Dogg has been a pop culture icon throughout his 16-plus years in the hip-hop business, from music to movies and video games to clothing lines.
Tha Dogg Pound was an integral part of the Death Row Records empire, which cast a tall shadow over rap music in the early to mid-1990s. After the label released "Dogg Food" (1995), Daz and Kurupt' pursued solo careers and occasionally reunited. Warren G's 1994 debut, "Regulate ... G Funk Era," was certified multi-platinum in the U.S., sold more than 10 million units worldwide and earned multiple award nominations.
