His gritty lyrics and unmatched charisma made him a superstar but nobody could have guessed back then that his appeal would soon be widespread. Snoop will always be recognized and loved by all ages – from grandmothers to grandchildren and everyone in between. After 17 years, Snoop has not only maintained his relevance but he has done so without changing who he is – a rare feat for most celebrities who constantly have to reinvent themselves to stay on top.
