Besides them, Snoop is also the father of another son he had with Laurie Holmond right before getting married to Shante. His name is Julian Corrie, and he was born in 1998. The singer has always been financially responsible for Julian, however, it was not until years later, that the kid was known publicly as Snoop’s son.

MORE THAN MUSIC

Apart from being one of the greatest rappers in the music industry and having sold millions of records around the globe, Snoop is also a man who knows how to take care of his own family.

Recently he has been engaged in a plant-based food philosophy by investing in Beyond Meat, and he has been trying to pass it down to his wife and children. In an interview, he explained how he managed to “sneak” the food into their plates so that they did not know what they were eating.

He explained that after being told that the food they just ate was meatless, they were all very surprised. And that is how the rapper is trying to teach his family to have plant-based nutrition as an option.
