Snoop Dogg is best known for his raps about drinking and smoking, but he is quite a family man. Since the late 1990s, Snoop has been a well-known figure in the music industry. The rapper, who is 51 years old, has had a long and successful career with songs like "Who Am I," " The Next Episode," and "Drop It's Like It's Hot." The popular rapper has also been in a number of movies, TV shows, and documentaries. But being a father is one of his most important achievements.
Eventually, he has three children with his wife, Shante Taylor, but he also has a son with his mistress! Snoop Dogg does not have a close relationship with the child, but he is a committed father to his other three primary children.
In this article, we'll tell you what's new with Snoop Dogg's children and everything else we know about them.
Cordé Broadus: The Oldest Snoop Dogg Child
Cordé Broadus was born in 1994. He is the oldest son of Shante Broadus (who used to be known as Taylor) and Snoop Dogg. As kids, Cordé and his brother Cordell were in the music video for "Drop It Like It's Hot" by Pharrell Williams and their father in 2004. Cordé has pursued a music career over the years. He used to go by the name Spanky Danky when he was on stage.
In terms of his personal life, he has a son named Zion from a previous relationship. His long-term partner, Soraya Love, gave him a daughter named Elleven and a son named Sky. It has also been reported that the couple had a baby boy named Kai in 2019. However, after 10 days in a neonatal intensive care unit, the baby died. Cordé wrote on Instagram, "Kai, my son, brought so much love and happiness into this world. His spirit will live on, and we will think fondly of these ten days of love."
Snoop's eldest son, under the name Kalvin Love, continues to perform music and share glimpses of his family life on Instagram.
Cordell Broadus: Snoop Dogg's second son
Cordell Broadus is the second son of Snoop Dogg and his wife. He was born in 1997. When he was younger, Cordell was a good athlete. He went to UCLA and played football. Nevertheless, instead of pursuing a career as a wide receiver, he went to the School of Theater, Cinema, and Television. Cordell loves fashion, directing, and running his own business. Vogue says that he has modeled for Ralph Lauren and Vanity Fair and was the creative director for the sportswear company Joyrich.
"I'm open to meeting new people and learning about other businesses, so it's all exciting to me," he told Vogue. "I try to get out of my comfort zone and do things I wouldn't normally do."
Currently, he is the creative director for "Doge Dash," a crypto gaming platform. This move has also given Snoop Dogg new opportunities. Along with LeBron James Jr. and Lil Yachty, Snoop joined FaZe Clan's talent network in March 2021. The rapper was also put on the board of directors of the gaming giant because of his son."He's [Cordell] incredibly tuned into gaming, Web3, culture, and so on, and felt this would be something I'd be into," Snoop told The Hollywood Reporter. Cordell saw a "natural link" between the project and his father's love of video games. "The way the two brands could work together inspired me, so I brought them together," he said.
Cori Broadus: Snoop Dogg's Only Daughter
Cori Broadus is the youngest of her siblings. She was born in 1999 and is the only daughter of Snoop Dogg. According to Hollywood Life, Cori's music career began when she was a young teen. She and her mother sang backup vocals on Snoop Dogg's 2012 album "Reincarnated." Cori B. had hits with songs like "Sittin' in My Room" and "Daddy's Daughter," which even had her father on it.
Later on, it was noted that her single "Love Me For Me," which came out in 2018 under the name Choc, showed that her music had become more mature. Nonetheless, at age six, Cori was told she had lupus, which would hurt her both physically and mentally as she got older. Her mother says that Cori was a big reason why she started her scarf business, "Broadus Collection." Shante Broadus told W Magazine in 2021, "When Cori's hair started to fall out, I would put a scarf on her. We all wore scarves with her to make her feel less alone."
In 2021, Cori spoke out on Instagram about her problems with mental health. She said that her boyfriend Wayne and her family's support give her "a reason to live" during a dark episode that put her in the hospital. She then said, "I have always been sad. I've always been down. "I've been through a lot." "She talks about being bullied, how she feels about her body, and being diagnosed with lupus.
On a brighter side in March 2022, Snoop was happy for Cori because she was running the first Black-owned hair salon in Santa Monica.
In the late 1990s, Snoop was dating Laurie Holmond, and in 1998, their only child, Julian Broadus, was born. Laurie and Snoop's relationship got worse over time, which ended Snoop and Julian's growing relationship. Snoop, on the other hand, said he didn't know about his son until he was 9 and Holmond sued for child support. After a paternity test, Snoop agreed to pay child support.
He hasn't been shy about the fact that he grew up without his megastar father's attention. In many interviews over the years, he has talked about how he pretty much had to make a name for himself on his own. When the hip-hop singer, his wife, and their three children starred in "Snoop Dogg's Father Hood", Julian told reporters he felt left out. "I'd like to be on the show so I can learn more about my family. It would be great if we could just hang out with each other. I think we can get there one day," he told Star Magazine.
Unfortunately, even though Julian loves basketball, he didn't play it professionally. But he has been working in real estate with Agents of LA, matching high-end properties with celebrities who want to buy them. In 2020, he told The Blast, "I am ready to make a name for myself and make money." According to Instagram, Julian has several interests, including business, where he communicates with companies associated with the metaverse. He also made his acting debut in July 2021 in "Charge It to the Game."
What about bonding with his father's family? In November 2021, he posted a picture of himself with Snoop's dad and Cordé, so it looks like everything is fine. Snoop also went to Julian's work event, which showed how close they are.
Snoop Dogg loves being a Grandparent!
Cordell Broadus has joined Snoop Dogg's family of grandchildren, joining Zion, Elleven, Sky, and the late Kai Broadus. Cordell has a kid from a prior relationship with Marissa Hopkins, Champion, called Church Jr. by BCK.
In 2015, when his first grandson was born, Snoop Dogg told TODAY, "I'm going to be a naive grandpa who thinks he can get away with anything." "It's a little bit of happiness to look into his eyes and hug him." On Instagram, he sometimes posts photos of himself with his kids. For instance, when he is coloring with his granddaughter or just hanging out with his youngest.
Even though Snoop and his kids' lives haven't always been easy, what's important is that they continue to grow and help each other.
