Trivia / Snoop Dogg

  • Banned in the U.K.: Snoop himself.
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: "Smoke Weed Everyday" is often attributed to Snoop Dogg, even though it was sung by Nate Dogg. And "The Next Episode", the song that line appears on, technically isn't a Snoop Dogg song, being a Dr. Dre song with Snoop and Nate as guest artists.
  • Breakthrough Hit: "Gin and Juice", which was the second single from Doggystyle.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Accused of this, for... shall we say... the range of his resume. Seriously, as long as the offer is decent and you ask him nicely, any artist can get Snoop to rap on one of their songs.
  • One of Us
    • Snoop is an avid Los Angeles Dodgers, Lakers and Pittsburgh Steelers fan, as well as a fan of Metallicanote  and Country Music, and Professional Wrestling (just look at his appearance at Wrestlemania 26).
    • He is also an avid video game fan, and has appeared in several games As Himself, with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 being the most recent one with him even recording a new track for the game, titled "Knocc 'Em Down".
    • He even co-starred in an Epic Rap Battle of History!
    • He's expressed appreciation for Homestuck, posting fanart of himself posing with Homestuck characters.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Future "Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay (later Tyrus) was once his bodyguard
