Snoop Dogg was born to be an entertainer. The Long Beach native stands as one of the most prolific MCs of all time, with a rap sheet that includes chart-topping songs, albums, and enough clout that has allowed him to work with anyone from 2Pac to Katy Perry in his 20-year career.
But Snoop's prominence extends beyond music. He's starred in several films, created a number of TV shows, and just overall been a presence in the public eye, visible enough that even your grandma probably knows his name. Snoop is ingrained in popular culture like no other rapper. And we don't expect the Doggfather to stop anytime soon.

Great moments like his cameo in the 1998 cult classic Half Baked are included, as well as his hilarious appearance on WWE Raw back in 2009.
