His rap career began in the 1990s, when his first album, Doggystyle, first reached #1 on Billboard’s Hip Hop and Top 200 charts. His most recent achievement in music was a reggae album, Reincarnated, which was released in 2013 along with a documentary of the same title and which represented his conversion to the Rastafari movement. He is currently at work on his final studio album, which will be released under his common rap title Snoop Dogg.
