Who is Snoop Dogg's wife, Shante Broadus?

Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus have been married since June 1997.

According to People, the couple first met in high school, where they even attended prom together before graduating in 1989.

Snoop revealed the secret to his and Shante's longtime happiness in a 2023 TODAY interview.

“I think because we were both young and we were both willing to sacrifice for each other. She knew what my dreams and goals was, and at the same time, I knew what hers were," Snoop said. "To have a family and to be who we are ... we both wanted to get to that goal, and when we reached it, it was hard, definitely, because you got so many different things pulling you away from marriage, and people divorcing every other day. But when you truly love somebody, there ain't nothing you can do to break that up and I feel like that was true love at first sight."

In November 2023, Cordell announced on Instagram that he and his father were launching the video gaming studio, Death Row Games. The game publishing company was designed to give minority creators a platform to develop content for Fortnite, as Cordell revealed to Galore.

"Myself and my father, we’re avid gamers,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “We’ve witnessed the power of video games and how impactful storytelling is, and we just wanted to provide an immersive experience that represents the neighborhoods and the places that we come up from.”

In addition, Cordell has a lineup of investments and business partnerships within the NFT, real estate, fashion, and gaming spaces and opened the taco restaurant Bored Taco. He is also an active philanthropist, having launched the Champ Medici Arts Fund to support "emerging and legacy musicians and artists across the globe."

Aside from her music pursuits, Cori is also an entrepreneur and CEO of Choc Factory, a company that specializes in body oils and cosmetic products. When launching the company in 2020, she revealed that the recurring Choc moniker was inspired by her father's nickname for her growing up.

“When I was a little girl, my dad used to call me 'Choc' because I was sweet and chocolate-colored,” Cori told Essence in 2022. “And that is what I put in my products that are handmade and filled with love and a touch of sweetness.”

Snoop is also a grandfather of six.

Through his eldest son Cordé, he is the grandfather of Zion, Leo, and Elleven.

Through Cordell, Snoop has granddaughters Cordoba, Chateau, and Symphony Sol.

"My grandkids are my everything because they all individually get a piece of my heart and they're different," Snoop told People in 2023 while dishing on the unique personalities of the kids. "My oldest grandson Zion told me he's the biggest star in the family. He took my Snoop Loopz box and put his own little cover on the front and made his own cereal."

"And then my granddaughter CC, she plays tennis, she loves her papa," Snoop continued. "She sees me in the store in my little Corona ads and whatnot — [she says], 'Papa!' That sh-t means the world to me for them to call me that because I had a papa."

The following year, Snoop spoke with Jennifer Hudson about the massive Broadus family, revealing to the former Voice Coach what his grandchildren call him.

"[My grandchildren are] different ages, ranges, sizes and I love them all the same way," Snoop said while chatting about attending Zion's 9th birthday later that day. It was Zion who bestowed the "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper with the moniker "Papa Snoop."

"He used to call me Papa Noop because he couldn't say Snoop, so he started calling me Papa Noop," Snoop revealed. "And then as time went by, he learned how to say Snoop, so now I'm Papa Snoop."
