How the West Was Won
In 1992, Snoop Dogg came to the attention of the influential rapper and producer named Dr. Dre. Partly as a result of this partnership, Snoop Dogg's debut album, Doggystyle, became an immediate hit. When it came out in November of 1993, the album rose up to No. 1 on the US chart and eventually sold around 11 million copies worldwide. The three singles that emerged from the album - "Gin and Juice," "Doggy Dogg World" and "What's My Name?" - all proved to be massive mainstream hits even beyond the world of rap. His two follow-up albums, The Doggfather (1996) and Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told (1998), both reached No. 1 in the US as well. In the 21st century, Snoop Dogg has continued to release a string of hits, including "Drop It Like It's Hot" (2004) that featured Pharrell Williams. In 2011, his hit single called "Young, Wild & Free" featured Wiz Khalifa and Bruno Mars. In 2012, Snoop Dogg briefly changed his name to Snoop Lion and released a reggae album called Reincarnated.
