Hip-hop star, Snoop Dogg, (Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr.), is well known for spending time helping troubled teenagers channel their energies into sport rather than crime. Primarily, he coaches them through his youth football programs. However, now it has been revealed that he is currently raising one kid at home.
In an interview with “Vibe” magazine, Snoop Dogg (39) said he’s taken in an “an at-risk kid” to live with him and his family. He says things are going well with the boy. “He’s becoming more productive. As opposed to being a great athlete, we’re making him a great person.”
That is quite a task! But Snoop is proud of his efforts to help at-risk youths deal with their problems and their past. He encourages them toward successful careers in entertainment. He believes he is a good role model as he stays true to himself and he has turned his life around, as these kids need to do.
He says, “My greatest accomplishment is being able to stay me. It got me great endorsement deals, movie deals, record deals. Around the whole world, I’m looked at as a good guy. Not as a villain or a drug dealer or the gang banger I came in as.”
The “Sweat star” is staying busy these days. He is playing a one-off gig in London, England in May to launch his new album “Doggumentary”. However, he will not be adding reality TV judge to his CV anytime soon. He recently turned down an offer Simon Cowell made to him to be a judge on “X Factor USA”.
