Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg revealed he was a superstar early in his career. Though his ability to make songs was in part honed by his cousin Nate Dogg and his friend Warren G, it was when he got with Dr. Dre, then at Death Row, and made his first album, Doggystyle that the world took notice. It broke the record for highest-selling debut and fastest-moving album at the time when it opened at No. 1 on the charts with more than 800,000 sold.
