Recalling Snoop's earlier days

Snoop originally belonged to Long Beach, California. The artist was born to Vernell Varnado, who professionally serves as a mail carrier, singer, and Vietnam veteran, whereas his mom's name is Beverly Tate

Sadly, his biological dad left him along with his family as soon as Snoop's birth. 

However, his name was kept after his stepfather Calvin Cordozar Broadus Sr. Other than that, the artist had a deep interest in playing piano, rapping, and singing since he was young. 

Snoop had always been like the class clown

Snoop has released his first cooking book. He joked and said that there are no recipes that have marijuana infused, I want to keep it clean; Snoop said. 

Further added that it was his first book, and all he wanted was to keep it clean in his introduction. 

When asked if he had imagined, when he started, that his career would not only last this long but all the different areas that he would go into? 

Snoop instantly replies, not really, but he has always been like the class clown ever since he was a kid, so he was able to try different things. 

He was able to be different and not be afraid to go out on a limb and just put his career, put his life, put everything out there and let people know that he doesn’t care what others feel. 

He only cares about what he feels, and sometimes, he feels good when he expresses himself in different ways and different avenues, Snoop shared. 

Other than that, if he was given a choice between TV or movies, Snoop chose TV. He explained the reason for TV: it is faster, and you can mess up more on TV. 

Laurie’s son’s relationship with his dad

Laurie’s and Snoop’s son’s name is Julian Corrie Broadus. In one of the interviews, Julian says that he has no relationship with his dad. 

Also, Julian is not scared to call out Snoop, whom he claims to be an absentee dad. It’s been said that their son wanted to be a part of his dad’s show. 

However, that wasn’t to be. As per the current scenario, as Julian gets older, he says about his relationship with his dad, stating that his mind isn’t as heavy now. 

In 2018, Laurie’s son signed a contract for a recording deal with the rap titled “Teen Snoop.”

Also, the lady confronted in numerous interviews of her, stating that Snoop has no longer maintained a personal relationship with their son. 

Who are Snoop Dog's 11 real friends?

As a legendary rapper, Snoop Dog has a million followers and friends, but there are only 11 friends whom he considers his real friends. 

According to him, his real friends are who they are and who they have been. He doesn't bring people just to hang around. 

He has about 11 friends that are his real die-hard friends who were there when he didn't have money and are still there. 

Although he has got about a million friends, he has just 11 friends that are on his dial list with whom he hangs out. 

They are the ones who go to his house, play video games, have their regular jobs, and ask for nothing. 

"The respect and the level of friends, like they are my friends, that are my real die-hard friends. I only have friends, and I don't have people that hang on", he said. 

He then went on to say that earlier in his life, he used to have millions of people hanging out with him. 

A lot of them were strangers whose names he would not know. They used to wake up on his couch, and he would be like," Who is that"? 

He used to get a headache, so he decided to separate his business from friendships and pick who he really wanted to be part of the journey that he was going on. 

The journey where he can't have any hate, no jealousy, no envy but just pure love.

Her son Julian wants to get into the music industry on his own

Her son is thinking of getting into the music industry but on his own. He does not want to use his father's name. 

During a podcast, Julian said he had always been like an athlete growing up, so he never went to the studio with his father, and also, his father didn't want him to be around smoke and all those things. 

Julian said he never wanted to be on the track with him. They never asked each other.

It was not a conscious decision to make music. He actually started with poetry that eventually led into Music. 

Having said that, he added to say that music has always been his passion in his life. It always provided him with a whole different vibe.

The reason behind doing it on his own is that he doesn't want people to be around telling him he made it only because of his dad, he said. 

According to him, it's not like he is making music because he wants to be just like his dad, but he is making music because he has a love for it. 

And when you have a love for something, you don't want it to be tainted with negativity. He always wants to keep the positive vibes around him. 

He can live with people slandering him for his music not being good but not with people telling him that he is this far because of his father, he explained. 

But he also said that if his father wants to be part of everything, then he is not going to stop.
