The answer may surprise you.
While some rap music enthusiasts regard Snoop Dogg as one of the world’s best, others dispute that judgment. That’s because Snoop Dogg, the Doggfather — also known as Snoop Lion, Snoopzilla, and the man behind the nickname Snoopzilla, which is a nod to his nickname “Snoopzilla” — isn’t a rapper at all. But that’s not what most critics are saying. Snoop Dogg is a “rap god,” and his song “Doggystyle” is perhaps the highest-selling hip-hop song since “Panda” in 2009.
The rapper said Wednesday that he does still consider himself a “rapper” — a term he first uses in his 1996 song “Flamingo Blues” — but he’s not one yet.

I was an idiot to even think about music.”
This past summer, Snoop announced that he was working on a new record in his hometown of New York City. It’s called “Nigga,” and Snoop thinks it’s about his life and his relationship with his mother, Jan
