Read Snoop Dogg's Career Recap Ahead of His Guest Spot on Lopez vs Lopez
What will Snoop Dogg have up his sleeve for the Lopez family?
Get ready for a fun-filled Lopez vs Lopez Season 1 finale, because the one and only D-O-double-G is pulling up to the hysterical household. Yes, that's right: Powerhouse entertainer Snoop Dogg is hanging with the Lopez family to finish Season 1 with a bang. (Snoop Dogg is one of the many iconic guest stars in the new NBC comedy, which stars George Lopez and his daughter, Mayan Lopez.)
Snoop's backstory is legendary at this point. After getting his start in the West Coast rap scene, he went on to become an entertainment tycoon. In honor of him appearing in the Lopez vs Lopez finale, we're looking back at his incredible career, below.
Snoop Dogg skyrockets to success as a West Coast rapper
Snoop Dogg broke into the music industry with a feature on Dr. Dre's “Nuthin’ But A G Thang." The collab led him to join a talented lineup of iconic L.A. Artists who helped popularize gangsta rap and "izzle-speak" in the 1990s. Snoop released his debut album, Doggystyle, in 1993, which put him atop Billboard's Hip-Hop and 200 charts.
He's since released and been featured on dozens of hit singles, including "Drop It Like It's Hot," "The Next Episode," "Murder Was the Case," and "Beautiful."
Snoop Dogg has released 19 studio albums to date, including the reggae-inspired Reincarnated, under the short-lived moniker Snoop Lion, and his most recent album BODR.
Two days following BODR's 2022 release, Snoop Dogg performed in the Super Bowl LVI halftime show, delivering a rousing set celebrating the artistry of the hip-hop genre alongside fellow icons Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem.
Snoop Dogg, the cherished film and television star
While making a name for himself as a prolific rapper, Snoop proved he was a multi-talented performer, as well, by branching into acting. He's appeared in several notable projects, likeThe L Word, Weeds, and The Trailer Park Boys. He's also got roles in iconic films like Training Day, Starsky & Hutch, The Wash, the animated Addams Family, and Day Shift (not to mention an incredible guest role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).
Snoop's on-screen chops have also led to a successful reality television career, such as his 2007 series Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, the sketch show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, and the party-style talk show Dogg After Dark.
Since 2016, Snoop has been hosting dinner parties for celebrities with the endlessly charming homemaker Martha Stewart in Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.
Snoop Dogg, the football-playing philanthropist
Snoop is a lifelong football fan, and he combined his passion for the sport with his desire to help at-risk youth by starting the Snoop Youth Football League.
The league hosts 50 teams and more than 1,500 players. In 2017, it expanded to Snoop's Special Stars, a football program tailored to children with developmental disabilities. Snoop claims that over 20 of his former players have gone on to play in the NFL, making his Super Bowl performance all the more poetic.
Snoop Dogg and George Lopez team up for Lopez vs Lopez
Snoop adds Lopez vs Lopez to his expansive portfolio of guest appearances in the Season 1 finale (titled "Lopez vs Last Call"). The episode synopsis teases, "George hits the bottle as Mayan hits her limit with his behavior. Meanwhile, Rosie is drunk with jealousy when Chance announces George is his hero." The Lopez vs Lopez Season 1 finale airs Tuesday, May 9 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.
