Trivia / Snoop Dogg

  • Banned in China: Snoop was banned in the U.K. from 2006 to 2010, when his ban was lifted. He was similarly banned in Australia for over a year and Norway from 2012 to 2014. Subverted in Sweden as Snoop said after being detained for taking drugs, he would no longer perform there anymore.
  • 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.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Snoop's first album wasn't Doggystyle, but a demo tape called Over The Counter, which had a promotional release in 1991, before Death Row decided to scrap it and release Dr. Dre's The Chronic first instead. Legitimate copies of Over The Counter are impossible to find, and are said to be worth at least thousands of dollars.
  • 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:
  • Retroactive Recognition: Future "Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay (later Tyrus) was once his bodyguard.
  • Uncredited Role: He's worked as an uncredited ghostwriter for Dr. Dre.
