Nicknamed Snoop by his mother for his appearance, Calvin Broadus Jr. was raised in Long Beach, California, where he frequently ran into trouble with the law. Not long after high school graduation, he was arrested, beginning a three-year period where he was frequently imprisoned. Able to find an escape from a life of crime through music, Snoop Dogg was introduced to the world in 1992 when he was prominently featured on Dr. Dre’s album “The Chronic.” Snoop quickly became one of the most famous stars in rap, partially because of his signature drawled rhyming style, and partially because his lyrics seemed to imply "realness" due to his troubled history. His much anticipated solo album “Doggystyle” was released in 1993 and was an instant success.

The world-renowned music scene is yet another reason to love California’s Greater Bay Area.
