Rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg, with his lazy drawl and gangster persona, became one of the most commercially successful artists in all of rap. Alongside artists like N.W.A., Tupac, and Ice-T, Snoop epitomizes West Coast hip-hop. Debuting in 1992 as a collaborator on Dr. Dre’s 1992 multiplatinum¬†The Chronic, Snoop followed soon after with the release of¬†Doggystyle, which set a new record as the then-biggest selling rap album.
