by Tasha Mayberry


Snoop Dogg, renowned for his illustrious rap career and entertaining cooking collaborations with Martha Stewart, is also a devoted father of four. The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” icon shares sons Corde, 29, and Cordell, 27, as well as daughter Cori, 24, with his wife, Shante Broadus, whom he’s been married to since 1997. Additionally, he has a son, Julian, 25, from a previous relationship. Snoop and Shante’s family dynamics were showcased on the E! reality show “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” which aired from 2007 to 2009 and chronicled their journey raising their three kids. In a 2007 interview with Snoop shared his thoughts on the show’s significance, stating, “Ninety percent of rappers grew up without fathers, but you see ninety percent of those rappers becoming fathers to their kids. We don’t ever get commended for that. We become real men when we get to this level we’re at right now.

Corde Broadus, 29

The eldest of Snoop’s children with Shante, Corde Broadus was born in August 1994. Following in his father’s footsteps, Corde is pursuing a career in music under the stage name Kalvin Love. He became a grandfather when he welcomed a son, Zion, with his ex-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer in 2012. Corde and his longtime girlfriend Soraya Love are parents to two other children: son Leo and daughter Elleven Love. In 2019, the couple welcomed a son, Kai Love, who tragically passed away ten days after birth. Reflecting on his son’s short life, Corde shared on Instagram, “My son did all he needed to do in his 10 days here on earth. He has now graduated and continuing to do work.

Cordell Broadus, 27

Snoop and Shante’s second son, Cordell Broadus, was born on February 21, 1997. Cordell initially pursued football and played for UCLA before redirecting his focus to creative endeavors. Following his departure from UCLA’s football team, Cordell ventured into the entertainment industry. He has appeared in the 2012 comedy “Mac and Devin Go to High School” and currently directs films through his company, Film School Productions.

Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus, make a formidable team both in their personal relationship and as business partners. The iconic “Drop It Like It’s Hot” artist encountered his future spouse when they were teenagers, and she has been a steadfast supporter of his music career from the outset. Broadus reminisced about those early days, telling W Magazine in 2021, “I was there with him when he started all this. Even before he emerged as a musician, our friends and I were his fans. We would always listen to his songs and offer our opinions. Even after he gained popularity, I continued assisting with deals and offers.” Speaking of business decisions, Snoop Dogg disclosed that he declined a lucrative opportunity with OnlyFans because he knew his wife wouldn’t approve: “They were like, ‘OnlyFans wants you to come on there, Snoop. You could do about $100 million. All you gotta do is pull that thang out,’” he revealed on an episode of the Instagram Live series “Wake & Bake With Double S Express” in January 2024. “I’m like, I got a Black wife. Ain’t no way in the world she gonna allow me to go on there and pull that thang out for no amount of money.” So, who exactly is Shante Broadus, and how did she meet and fall in love with the renowned rapper?
