Snoopcounters: Snoop Dogg Knows A Lot Of People

This week, rapper Snoop Dogg turned 40 years old. Tha Doggfather actually seems ageless to us, and we don't mean his 1996 album. Like, we fully expect him to become the hip-hop Willie Nelson: Rapping into his late 70s, relentlessly touring, smoking people a fraction of his age out in tour buses and backstage areas.

We first met Snoop Doggy Dogg late at night on MTV in 1993 when we saw the clip for Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang," and he's been in our lives ever since. From the Doggstyle album, Murder Was The Case, repeated listenings of "Drop It Like It's Hot" and his recent "work" with Katy Perry on "California Gurls." Bikinis, tankinis, martinis. No weenies.

Of course we haven't literally met Calvin Broadus in person, at least not yet, but he's sure made the rounds with a motley crew of people.
