Snoop Dogg and his family are in mourning today after the tragic loss of his grandson. The infant apparently died in hospital, just ten days after his birth.
The family have been forced to do their mourning in public, with various members of the family openly grieving. We wish the family the best during the difficult time.
You'd have to be living under a rock to have never heard of Snoop Dogg.Born in 1971, he's one of rap's biggest breakout stars - and is now known just as much for his entrepreneurial ventures and hilariously chilled personality as he is for his tunes.
The rapper's real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Junior.He came up in the early nineties with the West Coast rap scene, first featuring on Dr. Dre's first single Deep Cover in 1992.
Perhaps his most famous single is 2004's Drop It Like It's Hot.The hit topped the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, and still gets the dance floor filled to this day. With moves like this, it's hardly surprising.
Broadus' rap persona is never far from some canine associations.According to legend, he was given his alter-ego's name by his mother, who thought he resembled Snoopy from the Peanuts cartoons. We can kind of see it!
Snoop is also well known for his fun social media presence.
