The Truth About Snoop Dogg's Siblings

Rapper Snoop Dogg is a man who continues to lead a pretty interesting life — and a very public life at that. From his early days of breaking into the entertainment scene in 1993 to his influential albums to becoming a huge star — Snoop Dogg has been a household name for decades. Besides the music, there were the arrests, court cases, and scrapes with the law (via The Age) which increased his popularity albeit under controversial circumstances.

Now 50, Snoop Dogg, born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., continues to be one of the iconic stars of American rap, and with that level of fame, details of his life never quite leave the spotlight. His marriage, his kids, his fascinating friendship with Martha Stewart, and his evolving career as a "multiplatform entrepreneur" (per The New York Times) continue to generate curiosity and interest from teeming fans and an American audience enamored with the larger-than-life character that Snoop Dogg is.

While much is known about Snoop Dogg's immediate family, less is known about the family he had before he met his high school sweetheart, Shante Broadus, whom he married and had two sons and a daughter with. In all this, the rapper has kept a close-knit extended family that he keeps regular contact with. 

The rapper sadly lost his mother, Beverly Broadus-Green in 2021 (via Hollywood Reporter), but still has his two brothers. Here is what we know about Snoop's siblings.

Snoop Dogg is a middle child

Per Distractify, Snoop Dogg's only siblings are his two half-brothers from his maternal side. His mom had a son before Snoop was born and another after she gave birth to the "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper. The oldest brother is Jerry Wesley Carter. He is not one for the entertainment scene and not much is known about him other than he's an employee of United Steel Workers, per Distractify.

On the other hand, Snoop's younger brother is definitely one for the entertainment world, even though he doesn't crave much of the spotlight, per Vice. He has worked closely with his famous brother, pulling strings and making things happen behind the scenes as the tour manager. He even founded a record label (via Dose) and has also done a bit of music of his own, per Distractify. The work he does in the background is what he loves most though. "I'm glad I'm a mystery. That's good," he said during an interview with Vice in 2016.

Snoop may have only two brothers but he's related to several people, some of them very famous. The hip-hop icon is cousins with Brandy, Kim Kardashian's ex, Ray J., as well as professional wrestler Sasha Banks, per HitC.
