Snoop Dogg, born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., has 17 Grammy nominations – with 96 career nominations – and won 27 awards with his hit songs such as “Drop it Like It’s Hot” and “Gin and Juice”.

His debut album, ‘Doggystyle’ (1993) was created after appearances on Dr. Dre’s first solo album, The Chronic (1992).
