After hearing rumors that he had died on July 10, many of his fans rushed to social media to find out “Is Snoop Dogg still alive?” However, Snoop Dogg was still alive and well and didn’t care about these ridiculous rumors. Such false rumors about a celebrity’s death can spread quickly.
This time, posts on social media based on an old rumor about Snoop have returned, leading some fans to think he has died. Fans said on Twitter that while they were watching other videos, a commercial came on that said the rapper had died.
According to another source that disproved the same claim, a Facebook group called “R.I.P. Snoop Dogg” posted a message about the rapper’s death. “Our beloved rapper Snoop Dogg died at 11 a.m. ET on Saturday, July 9, 2022.”
If Snoop Dogg isn’t dead, where is he now?
Snoop hasn’t thought about the death rumors, which is different from some celebrities who try to disprove them. But we know that the rapper is still alive and well in 2022 based on his social media posts and the lack of hard facts. This isn’t the first time he’s been the target of a fake death story. In 2013, fans were shocked by a similar story that said he had died.
The rapper is busy cheering on his Special Stars at the SSS 5th Annual Football & Cheer Camp at Los Angeles Southwest College while online discussions about Snoop’s faked death gain steam.
The rapper set up the Snoop Youth Football League, a non-profit (SYFL). The SYFL teaches kids between the ages of five and thirteen how to work together, have good sportsmanship, be disciplined, and respect themselves. At the same time, the organization’s website says that academics are critical.
Does Snoop Dogg now own Death Row Records?
Rap legend Snoop Dogg bought Death Row Records and the music publishing company MNRK Music Group, backed by Blackstone. In a press release announcing the sale, Snoop Dogg said he was “thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has a lot of untapped future value.”
“It’s nice to own the record label I helped start when I first got into the music business.” He thanked everyone who “worked with me over several months to make this exciting homecoming a reality.” He also said that this is a “significant” moment in his career. In his last statement, the musician said, “I’m excited to start writing the next chapter of Death Row Records.”
Doggystyle was Snoop Dogg’s first album. It came out on Death Row in 1993, a year after Dr. Dre, The D.O.C., Suge Knight, and music business entrepreneur Dick Griffey started the label. Snoop Dogg’s life has come full circle with this purchase. The rapper will perform with Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show on Sunday. His new album, B.O.D.R., which stands for “Bacc On Death Row,” comes out on Friday.
