Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has a lot of famous friends in Hollywood, from Diddy, Martha Stewart to the late Tupac Shakur. His list of famous cousins is just as impressive as his inner circle.

Going back to the start of his career, Snoop Dogg and his cousin Daz Dillinger, whose real name is Delmar Drew Arnaud rose to fame together. They were at the helm of "Death Row Records" when gangster rap started to become mainstream in the 1990s.
