Snoop Dogg Talks Getting His Name

Posted By on July 27, 2011

     During a new interview with Esquire magazine, Snoop Dogg remembered a few key moments in his life. First Big Snoop spoke about how he got his name.

"My momma gave me the name. I used to love Peanuts and Charlie Brown — Snoopy was my favorite cartoon character growing up. I watched so much, I started to look like him," he explained.

     Big Snoop also touched on the first time he actually got high, having done it before turning ten years old.

"The first time I got high off marijuana was in the seventies, with one of my uncles. They had these little roaches on the table — these part-way-smoked marijuana cigarettes — and there was some Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull. I went in there and sipped the Schlitz, and my uncle asked me did I wanna hit that roach. And I was like, 'Yeah.' He put it on the roach clip for me and lit it up, and I hit that motherfucker. I was about eight or nine years old."
